The online voting rate was excluded from the screening criteria again this time to prevent awards in major categories such as the main prize, the grand prize, and the new impression award from turning into popularity. The screening ratio has been increased from 30 percent to 40 percent. The results reflect the opinion of the executive committee that the ratio of expert screening and the number of expert evaluation teams participating in the review should be increased to emphasize more professionalism and fairness, as the reliability of music charts has been reduced. An executive committee composed of six industry experts, including officials from South Korea’s leading music distributors and K-pop experts, agreed to increase the ratio of all music and music reviews.
