One rep from Gaon Chart said about the trend, "The mix of variety and popular comedians with music has been bringing on a new wave. The songs also managed to appear on top thanks to the way the public has become more receptive of diversity."

The Korea Entertainment Producer's Association meanwhile criticized Infinity Challenge for taking over the charts.
