Show! Music Core (Hangul: 쇼! 음악중심; Hanja: 音樂中心; Syo! Eum-a Gyungsim) is a South Korean music television program broadcast by MBC. It airs live every Saturday at 4:20PM KST. The show features some of the latest and most popular artists who perform live on stage. It is hosted by singer Park Ji-yeon of T-ara, Onew and Min-ho of SHINee, and Suzy of miss A.
The first similar music program that aired on MBC was Show Network (쇼 네트워크) in 1989, which at the time was the first music program to feature charts. It was replaced in 1991 by Everyone's Popular Songs (여러분의 인기가요), which was replaced by Choice Best Popular Songs (결정 최고 인기가요) in 1993, which was replaced by Popular Songs Best 50 (인기가요 베스트 50), which was then replaced by Live Young Times (생방송 젊은 그대) in 1998. That program was quickly replaced by the familiar Music Camp (음악캠프), which aired from April 25, 1998 to January 23, 1999, and was replaced by a short-lived Family Camp (가족캠프), but was revived on May 8, 1999 as Live Music Camp (생방송 음악캠프) which aired until July 30, 2005 and was cancelled due to a broadcast accident of revealing genitalia.
After a brief hiatus, Show! Music Core began airing on October 29, 2005 with charts similar to its predecessors. However, the charts were removed on January 7, 2006 and continues to air without any charts or awards. From 2007 to 2008, a Mobile Ranking segment was used to rank the popularity of songs downloaded to mobile phones and from online music sites.
