‘Music Trend’ to bring back rankings
Results will be aired on the weekly music program each Sunday at 3:30 p.m. starting on March 17.
Last Sunday, IU, Kwanghee of nine-member boy band ZE:A and actor Lee Hyun-woo of the television drama “Queen Seondeok” announced that they would host the new ranking segment for the music program.
Though some fans were undoubtedly excited by the development, industry experts voiced concerns that the hosts’ star power could potentially be used to skew results unfairly.
SBS canceled the ranking service last July after deciding to develop a more in-depth music program, according to the local media reports. With the return of the service, “Show! Music Core” on MBC is the only similar program without rankings.
