On the March 11th episode of KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank“, Big Bang snagged first place on the K-Chart, as reported earlier today on allkpop.
Fans were relieved to see that both YG Entertainment and the producers of “Music Bank” came to an agreement to have Big Bang finally perform on the show, however after today’s performance, fans were furious with various issues from the show.
Fans flocked to the official forum for “Music Bank” to complain about a variety of issues that arose during the broadcast with the first being score manipulation. They stated that the scores that were announced were relatively lower than what the score was really supposed to be.
In order to back up their claim, they took the “Gaon Chart” ratings released on March 11th, for the week of February 27th to March 5th, to prove Big Bang’s real popularity. It stated, “‘Tonight’ has already acquired an accumulative number of 3,361,133 hits for both downloads and streams. The data collected came from 5 major music charts in Korea including Mnet, Bugs, MelOn, Dosirak, and Soribada.”
The second issue that was brought up deals with Music Bank’s lack of equality. While almost all singers, returning or rookie, receive a two-song comeback stage, Big Bang was only permitted with one.
Lastly, the lighting throughout Big Bang’s performance was too dark and poor to see both the dancers, and the Big Bang members.
Fans that responded to some of the complaints stated, “It was the worst stage ever.” They continued, “This is the treatment Big Bang receives for appearing on Music Bank. In the future, if Music Bank states they want a game of fairness, don’t take it too seriously.”
Others commented, “It was stated earlier that in order to be fair, Big Bang would have to come back with only one song, however the vast majority of singers receive 2 songs. I hope for Big Bang to never appear on Music Bank again. You broadcast your own scores, and not the actual numbers. You hide the calculating method, and that’s why I can’t trust your system.”
