A More Definitive Ranking of Songs with the Most Music Show Wins

  • ******This thread was copied over from the old forum.******

    ***Note that this post will be updated regularly with the latest music show win data.***

    If you've seen my other thread, you'll know that I have quite an interest in music shows. While that other post focused on artists with the most music show wins, I figured that it made sense to crunch the data and determine which songs have won the most. Keep in mind that only songs with 10 or more wins are included below, and the results are current as of 2023-03-12. The dates of a song's first and last wins are also shown.

  • I didn't know Hyun-Jinyoung dominated in 1992. I thought he got into a marijuana scandal or something that axed his career and that's why Lee Sooman starts with H.O.T as his first SM artist. Maybe those wins were before the scandal.

  • I didn't know Hyun-Jinyoung dominated in 1992. I thought he got into a marijuana scandal or something that axed his career and that's why Lee Sooman starts with H.O.T as his first SM artist. Maybe those wins were before the scandal.

    So the 18 wins occurred from October 1992 to January 1993. Thus, they were indeed before the drug scandal, which was in late 1993 following the release of his third album, the awkwardly-named Int. World Beat and Hip-Hop of New Dance 3.

  • I've updated the initial post to include IVE's "Eleven", which achieved 11 wins on 2022-01-23. It's the first new entry since "Celebrity", which was added back in April.

  • What music shows do you take into account.

    I assume today there are more music shows than in the 1990's.

    On my hot girl shit, if you missed it" Jang Yeeun

  • What music shows do you take into account.

    I assume today there are more music shows than in the 1990's.

    I've incorporated wins from every music show that I could find data for:

    iTV: Hot3 Big10

    JTBC: Music on Top

    KBS: Bravo New Generation, Music Bank, Top 10 Songs

    KMTV: Decision! Is It Popular 43, Music Triangle, Show Music Tank

    Korea MTV: MTV Countdown

    MBC Music: Show Champion

    MBC: Choice Best Popular Songs, Everyone's Popular Songs, Live Music Camp, Live Young Times, Music Camp, Popular Songs Best 50, Show! Music Core, Show Network

    Mnet: Gayo Best 27, M Countdown

    NTV: N-Top Inkigayo

    SBS MTV: The Show

    SBS: Inkigayo, Star Seoul Star, TV Gayo 20

    And yes, you're correct in that there has never been a time with more music shows awarding trophies than there is now.

    Moved the thread from forum KPOP to forum KPOP.
  • Since there hasn't been much movement in this ranking, I went ahead and added all the songs that have achieved 10 wins, of which there are 49 in total, including 2022's biggest hit: Love Dive.
