1. [+1180, -104]  Akdong Musician's songs are truly amazing 

2. [+951, -77]  Akdong Musician deserves it.  Hope they'll hit it big this year too!!

3. [+762, -73]  Would be really great if Akmu released new songs

4. [+779, -167]  If this means EXO isn't going to receive an award then this is truly the general public's music award choice..

5. [+645, -190]  There's no mistake that Seo Taiji is an amazing musician

6. [+109, -11]  I wish musicians such as Akdong Musician and Seo Taiji would be able to thrive even more in the music industry ㅠㅠ

7. [+105, -8]  Now this is a real award ceremony!

8. [+98, -12]  Akdong Musician's very young but they're definitely genius musicians.

9. [+91, -8]  Akdong Musician really didn't receive as much awards as they should have... They haven't received a single rookie of the year award or an award for their album...

10. [+111, 20]  This is how a proper awards ceremony should be...

1. Not a fan of EXO, but backhanded compliments by shaming EXO is tiring
2. ITS ABOUT TIME!!! AKDONG MUSICIAN DESERVES ALL FHOSE AWARDS! Melted was the best
3. Wish 2NE1 was nominated with CRUSH, but other than that I'm so happy for TAEYANG, AKDONG MUSICIAN, and EPIK HIGH

And KOREAN forget about CRUSH again. Sigh

fdnvgrt said...

and I'm suprised that there arent any idol groups

gzbitch said...

Yassss! AKMU! GET IT!

Nila ^.^ said...

~flips hair~ We're still the best

me posing i wanna be a site model am i pretty or ugly comment

ine said...

does this award show not have fan voting?

엿먹어 said...

Me too, and from the comments the Korean netizens are as well.. I don't know Korean 100% but one of the comments for that article discussing idols was like "Yeah, we don't care" LOL

fdnvgrt said...

To be honest I'm glad there arent any idols. They take most of the awards even when i think others deserve it more.

princekyung said...

Me too. Is it some sort of trend in the comments these days? Cus Ive been reading netz comments and theres always a top comment like "____ is a million times better than EXO" or something like that. Totally uncalled for. I'd rather them praise someone without putting down another.

엿먹어 said...

There's actually an article on naver discussing why there aren't any idol groups for this award show lmao

myoonsong said...

Finally Akmu!!! ITS YOUR TIME TO SHINE!

hannaxxy said...

I'm still upset over the year end awards and that we couldn't get to see 2NE1 perform on most of them..
Anyway, I'm really glad Akmu got nominated, they deserve it.

qq said...

Seriously this year could have been soooooo goooood with year end performances. I didn't even care about awards but I was still anticipating for their stages, MAMA 2011 was still THE best

mek0 said...

I remember reading awhile back that the criteria for the Korean Music Award is a bit different compared to the other award shows. The usual award that idol groups win is either the "Netizen Vote Award" or the "Best Dance & Electronic Award". Which makes sense if you think about it. You can google past winners and you can see not many idols win. I'm honestly surprised that YG artists got that many nominations.

Riyadh Prawiryo Att said...

Are you ready for the B.E.S.T

Abi Ck said...

this is the equivalent of the Korean Grammy, so of course there are no idol groups. They have a "best dance & electronic song" category which is usually the idol consolation awards category.

HappyMaknae said...

Good job to Epik High, Tae and AKMU for being nominated! They are the best :D

withwink_ said...

Akmu deserve all the awards. they are so good. Fighting akmu!

uhhhhhhhh said...

i'm pretty sure they just eliminated all idol bands lol

Pastel said...

Was hoping to see 2NE1 or Crush nominated at least in one of the categories. But happy for Akmu, Epik High and Taeyang of course <3

hyunjungsh said...

#1 yes, leave exo alone. this isn't coming from a fan of them but poor boys suffered enough throughout the year. this isn't their fault that the awards ceremony system is rigged, plus as long as they allow fan voting i don't think we can really complain about it. they need to realize that exo will stay relevant if they keep mentioning them on every unrelated articles.

Amy said...

Exo already won awards at korean music awards tho......f(x) too.........

hannaxxy said...

This is the 12th Korean Music Awards.. they haven't even had their ceremony yet, it's in Feb. +Neither EXO or F(x) are nominated for this one. You're probably thinking of a different awards ceremony.

Amy said...

I said last year...................................

hannaxxy said...

A lot of people are insulting EXO because they swept most of the album of the year awards this year when some people thought that other artists/groups deserved it even more

Amy said...

It's just frustrating to see them being hated on because of their fandom size......so if they had less fans they would be considered worthy of winning? lol


Lets hate them because they sold a million albums and have a huge following....


they def dont deserve anything *sarcasm*

Amy said...

Korean music awards is known for having no relation to fandom size and fan power so the awards are based on pure musical quality based by non biased judges and NOT fans....

Exo already won awards at korean music awards tho last year......f(x) too the year before so i dont know why they are being insulted.........

hannaxxy said...

I'm not saying they don't deserve it. I actually do like a lot of their songs. It's just there are other groups out there with great albums this year that these award shows failed to recognize. Not to mention these award shows' voting and award criteria are problematic too. (I.e no show no award, etc.)

Amy said...

Yeah but tbh what we consider a good album is subjective right?

To blackjacks crush was the best album of last year but to exo fans their album was really good too I really liked red light's album too and IU's album...but its all subjective


its easier to be objective when it comes to awards and base it on actual sales where there is no error...am i wrong?


Im an exo/f(x) fan but i support winner too so i come here to check them out and i see hate n its tiring...

2ne1 though ~~

psychopathetic said...

maybe in korea some perceive exo and some other idol bands as the equivalent of justin bieber in america.

Royalty said...

so did 2ne1, they won the year before fx and big bang too, no one is saying the music by idols are bad, it's just there is better, and i don't mean this in a bad way at all, it's just that idols are comparable to teen stars in korea and just like in the US they aren't as respected in the general public as actual singers except maybe big bang (it's like comparing coldplay to justin bieber tbh)

Fernanda_YGFamily said...

Best rookie of 2014 for me. Play was amazing.

charendbsk said...

Finally the one who deserve

Orchardrose said...

there's infinite in artist/group of the year and not all the categories is are here so there probably is some idols but not as much as other award shows.

Debbie:) said...

Omg when I first read this I got confused like "wait a minute Crush (krnb singer) was nominated a bunch of times"

Debbie:) said...

Awkward moment when the Grammys nominated Igloo Austrailia recently.
I'd take idol groups over her any day
