Beating “Idol Group” B2ST for the award, PSY the Korean K-pop sensation has finally won an award on his home soil. With his track “Gangnam Style” dominating the South Korean music charts and it being an international hit sensation (number 1 on the Billboard K-pop Charts), he’s always been snubbed out of the weekly awards given in South Korea. But last night, he finally won an award on ‘Music Bank’. The show uses the ‘K-Chart’ which calculate sales.
K-Chart is the countdown charts of Music Bank. The charts are calculated by combining the Digital Music Charts (65%), Album Sales (5%), Number of times broadcast on TV/Radio (20%), and Viewers Choice Charts (10%). The Top 50 songs of the week are featured on the show, where the Top 21-50 songs are shown via marquee and the Top 20-3 songs are featured by the hosts. The hosts then showcase the Top Two songs and announce who will be the winner of the week. The Number 1 song on the chart is the winner of that week’s chart and receives an award.
Coincidentally, PSY was not at the show to receive the award. He might have been too busy meeting with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and meeting press all over the world.
