M Countdown (Korean엠카운트다운) is a South Korean music program broadcast by Mnet. It airs live every Thursday with live streaming available internationally via M Countdown On Air on their website. The show features some of the latest and most popular artists who perform live on stage. It is broadcast from CJ E&M Center Studio in Sangam-dong, Mapo District, Seoul.[1]

Segments[edit]

Segments previous airing include B'SHOP where songwriter Bang Si-hyuk introduces some hit songs, and MCD DRAMA where the hosts act out scenarios. The current segment airing is MCD NEWS which reports the latest music industry news, and MCD Ranking which ranks celebrities with certain topics.

As of April 26, 2018, the chart featured on M Countdown was calculated by combining Digital Single Sales (45%), "Album Sales (15%), Social Media Points (YouTube official music video views + SNS buzz) (20%), "Global Fan Votes (global fan votes through Mwave, Mnet Japan and Mnet America + SMS Votes) (10%), and "Mnet Broadcast Points (10%).

The perfect score is 11,000 points. As of May 2019, only Exo, Big Bang, Shinee, BTS, Twice, and NU'EST have achieved the perfect score under the last two scoring systems. Previously, only Girl's Generation achieved the perfect 10,000 points twice in the scoring system between 2013–2014.

Official hosts[edit]

Between April 2017 and April 2018, each episode of the show was hosted by special guesting hosts. Between April 2018 and March 2019, the show was hosted by a "Global MC Crew", which was made up of idol members who are capable of speaking foreign languages.[4]
