KM′s ′Music Triangle′ Vows to be a New Type of Music Show

CP Lee said he came to produce the new music show after recognizing the limits of those already airing.

"It′s the most basic story, but I believe that Korean music chart programs up to now all had their limits and their shortcomings. We wish to lead our program based on the chart too, but we′re mostly aiming to dig out music and singers loved by the public," he said.

He then added, "Music shows these days are concentrated on K-Pop stars and idol groups that are popular in the Korean wave, but this program was designed to give those who consume music an objective standard of music. The show will let people meet a variety of genres and singers in one performance."

Music Triangle is a program that ranks singers based on the Mnet chart out of all online music charts. It adds together a 50 to 50 ratio of download and streaming stats to determine its rankings every week.

Since the show′s ranks are mostly based on a public chart, it concentrates not on getting people curious about who will be first place, but on delivering the widest variety of music from the chart as possible. It will introduce the genres of dance, ballad, rock, hip-hop, indie and more to support a balanced development of all genres of music.

CP Lee also said, "If you look at the charts of advanced countries in the music market, you can see different genres ranked together, but since this is impossible in Korea, we put together this show to pursue diversity. The show is in this form because we know consumers enjoy many genres other than dance music."

The show′s first episode featured TVXQ (DBSK), Orange Caramel, Lee Seok Hoon, Baek A Yeon, Autumn Vacation, BandToXic, Stephanie, Navi, 45RPM, Rude Paper and AOA.
