SBS’ ‘Inkigayo’ Eliminates Ranking System, ′Mutizen Song Award′ and ′Take 7′
Changes are a-coming for SBS’ Inkigayo.
Beginning from this week’s July 15 broadcast of SBS’ weekly music show, the show will do away with the ‘Mutizen Song’ title and ‘Take 7’ system with a new format to be instated.
According to a source close to the production, Inkigayo will strive to move away from being solely a music program and to become a music ‘show’ through a new system and a wide range of diverse stages.
In addition, more special stages including collaborations with foreign musicians are being planned.
The move will make KBS’ Music Bank the sole music program, among the three terrestrial major networks, to still utilize a ranking system.
MBC’s Music Core eliminated its ranking system in 2006.
