Mnet is currently preparing a voting system for international fans

Mnet’s “M! Countdown” will be the first Korean music program to implement a voting system for international fans.

On March 10th, producers of the show revealed, “Heeding the K-pop wave, we have decided to change up the way the music chart is calculated by introducing an online voting system that allows international fans to participate.”

Producers claimed that in order to keep up with the popularity of K-pop overseas, they came up with a system that will set up a voting window, which allows international IPs to cast one vote for the nominee of their choice.

Japanese K-pop fans were the first group to receive the opportunity to try the system. On March 3rd, the voting system was added to the Mnet Japan homepage, and its results will be reflected in the upcoming episodes. The system will later expand to include countries all over Asia.

Mnet will also be calculating scores from digital album sales four days ahead of their live broadcast in order to keep up with the rapidly changing trends of the music industry.
