M Countdown (Korean엠카운트다운) is a South Korean music program broadcast by Mnet. The show features appearances by popular music artists who also perform live on stage. It is broadcast from CJ E&M Center Studio in Sangam-dong, Mapo District, Seoul.[1]

Broadcast[edit]

M Countdown airs live on domestic television at 6PM KST every Thursday.[2] Live streaming is available internationally via the M Countdown On Air page on Mwave's website.

In the Philippines, online multi-view live broadcast of the show is available via gigafest.smart.[3] It began airing on the free-to-air TV5 network from January 31, 2021, however due to low ratings on the network, it will conclude on March 6, 2022. Full episodes with English subtitles are shown every Sunday night, along with another K-Chart show Music Bank on GMA HallyPop. Meanwhile, some episodes of M Countdown like Hot Debut and Comeback Stages are already available on YouTube Philippines since January 2022.[4]

Segments[edit]

Current segments on the show include MCD Dance Challenge, MCD Vocal Challenge, Storage M, and M Studio. Discontinued segments formerly aired include: B'SHOP (songwriter Bang Si-hyuk introduced a selection of hit songs), MCD DRAMA (show-hosts acted out various scenarios), MCD NEWS (reported music industry news), and MCD Ranking (ranked celebrities based on certain topics).

Official hosts[edit]

(G)I-dle's Miyeon (on the left) and Nam Yoon-su (on the right) are the current hosts of M Countdown as of the February 18, 2021 broadcast.

In February 2010, Mnet announced a new group of eight emcees, comprising select members from 2PM, 2AM, CNBLUE, and MBLAQ. Nicknamed "MCD GUYZ", they hosted the show in subgroups of three or four at a time. This marked the first time M Countdown deviated from its tradition of having 1–2 fixed presenters.[8]

Following Key's departure as host on April 13, 2017, M Countdown announced the implementation of a "special MC system" of guest presenters since a permanent replacement had not yet been decided.[18] The first "new" hosts selected were girl group singers Hani from Exid, and Kyulkyung and Nayoung from Pristin—they appeared on the April 20 broadcast.[21]

Between April 2018 and March 2019, the show was hosted by a "Global MC Crew" of idols who spoke various foreign languages.[22]

M Countdown chart[edit]

Chart rankings are calculated by combining the following for a total of 11,000 points:[23]

  • Digital music sales from Gaon (50%)
  • Social media points from official YouTube music video views (10%)
  • Album sales data from Gaon (15%)
  • Global fan votes via Mnet.world (15%)
  • Mnet broadcast points (10%)
  • Live-vote (10%; first-place nominees only)

Data is collected from Monday to Sunday.

Songs can win a maximum of three times before being removed from the chart.[23]

Girls' Generation was the only act to achieve the perfect score of 10,000 points under the fourth and fifth scoring systems. Since then, only Exo, BTS, Shinee, Twice, and NU'EST have achieved the perfect score of 11,000 points.

Winners[edit]

While previous revisions of this article included winners from 2004 to 2007, that information was not supported by any secondary sources since its initial addition in 2011. A lack of media coverage of the show on Naver for those particular years makes sourcing the information difficult. As such, those sections have been removed from the page and only winners from 2008 to present are cited.

Triple Crowns[edit]

The term triple crown refers to when a song achieves three wins on the show.[23] After that, it becomes ineligible for first place and is removed from the chart.[23] The following is a list of all songs that have achieved a triple crown on M Countdown from 2008 to present.
