An embarassing moment happened during the announcing of the winner of the K-Chart yesterday evening on KBS Music Bank.
The numbers for the K-Chart was being tabulated live on screen with the three contenders, Jewelry, Epik High and MC Mong at the very end with MC Mong appearing via satellite. Nothing seems amiss until you look closely and see that the pictures for Epik High and MC Mong was swapped probably by accident.
But no one realized anything was amiss until the winner was announced by Kim Sung Eun that Epik High was the winner although the numbers indicated CLEARLY that it was MC Mong who had won it. MC Mong who was off-location recording “1N2D” was confused as well when he saw the results together with his fellow hosts, total oblivious as to what was happening live at Music Bank.
The boards at Music Bank has since been flooded with complaints from viewers and fans criticizing the mistake. Although It was an unfortunate human error, it could have been handled better at the end rather than the awkwardness.
Looking on the bright side, Jewelry is not No.1 anymore!!!
