Show! Music Core is a popular Saturday afternoon live music show that airs on MBC TV. After seven years without a chart system on the program, segment was reintroduced in the latest broadcast and the scoring system used to determine the top songs of the week is based on fan votes.
K.Will was announced to be the winner and looked surprised, as if he could not believe it. He accepted the trophy and just as he was about to say a few words of thanks, the Music Core staff jumped in to inform everyone there had been a mistake and INFINITE were the true winners.
K.Will played it cool and said, "It's okay, I'm okay," and handed the stage over to INFINITE to accept the award. He even added in a "I love INFINITE!" showing good sportsmanship. The idol group members, however, looked reluctant and uncomfortable when eventually accepting the trophy.
After the broadcast, viewers lashed out at Music Core's staff demanding an apology for the mistake. The producers later released a statement on the official program website saying, "There was a mistake in announcing the 1st place winner of the April 20 broadcast. This was a mistake because the text votes were mixed up for the two 1st place nominees. The two teams' scores are 100% fair results. The text votes accumulation company has promised to work harder to keep this from happening again. Please excuse us for not running a smooth live broadcast. Thank you."
Many netizens, however, were not satisfied with the show's statement, saying that they should have apologized not only to the viewers for the broadcast mistake, but also to K.Will who was embarrassed by the live show's error.
K.Will himself has been touched by the overwhelming fan support and took to Twitter to reassure Music Core viewers. He tweeted, "Don't ask me if I'm okay~ I'm really okay! Isn't this the fun of live broadcasts~ Hehe. I'll cooly give it over to Myungsoo and his friends~ ^^. The ranking system that came back after 7 years is a strength to the singers. Show! Music Core, fighting~!" He also added in a message to his fanclub, Hyungknight, "See you soon, and smile ^^ I'm okay! Ke."
There are bound to be mistakes with any sort of live broadcast show, and fans should keep this in mind, however, it seems unlikely that the Show! Music Core staff will make such a slip-up ever again. And as for K.Will, his reaction to the mishap just shows that he is a good sport and has great fans behind him.
