The Music Trend (Korean: SBS 인기가요; previously Popular Song, romanized as Inkigayo) is a South Korean music program broadcast by SBS. It airs live every Sunday at 3:50 PM KST. The show features some of the latest and most popular artists who perform on stage.
It is currently hosted by Goo Ha-ra, IU and Nicole.
The Music Trend debuted as SBS Popular Song in 1991 as a chart show, but was canceled in Autumn 1993. It was later revived in 1998 with its original title and format. In 2003, the chart format was removed and was replaced by Take 7, where seven of the most popular artists from the week are featured and the most popular artist receives the award for Mutizen Song.
In Spring 2007, the program changed from a recorded broadcast to a live broadcast in an effort to boost ratings, as well as changing the English name to The Music Trend. On November 2, 2008, the program moved from 3:20 PM to 4:10 PM Sunday afternoons, airing before Good Sunday, also to boost ratings. In Spring 2010, the program expanded to 70 minutes beginning at 3:50 PM every Sunday.
