KBS Music Bank
Broadcasts on Fridays at 5:00pm KST. [Watch Live]
They weigh up their ranking on the following criteria (Bold text indicates areas Ifans can influence):
65% Digital Sales (Melon etc)*
20% Broadcast Points (Frequency of appearances on KBS TV and Radio shows, song plays)
10% Viewers Voting (requires KSSN, international fans cannot vote)
5% Physical Album Sales (Hanteo etc)*
*Although the digitals category is very high, because Music Bank’s K-Chart works in terms of percentage, the digital category is broken down into the total digital market and it’s hard for even higher charting artists to get many points. This means that if there are not many artists promoting with better physical sales than CROSS GENE, the boys have a shot at winning since there are only a few ways you can divide the physical sales category (because not many artists sell massive units of physical albums).
