Following last week’s “Music Bank,” in which BTS won over I.O.I’s “Very Very Very” with their song “Blood Sweat & Tears,” some viewers suspected that there had been a mistake in the point calculations, and requested that the show reveal how they got their results.

“Music Bank” complied, and revealed their numbers for last week’s show.

They clarified that the percentages listed denote what percent each category accounts for in the point total.
