2012 Melon Music Awards



K-Pop stars flocked to the Seoul Olympic Park Stadium on December 14th to attend the ‘2012 MelOn Music Awards‘.

The awards show, which began in 2009 and is now entering its 4th year, established itself as one of the big four music awards ceremonies in South Korea alongside the ‘Mnet Asian Music Awards‘, ‘Golden Disk Awards‘, and ‘Seoul Music Awards‘.

The award winners of the top ’2012 MelOn Music Awards’ were chosen by calculating the number of downloads and streams (80%) as well as online votes (20%) with the exception of: the Global Artist Award (50% YouTube score & 50% online votes), and Netizen Popularity Award (20% downloads and streams & 80% online votes), as well as the Songwriter Award and MBC Music Star Awards (special judge votes).

The 2012 event was hosted by B2ST‘s Kikwang, INFINITE‘s Woohyun, Moon Hee Jun (H.O.T), and Danny Ahn (g.o.d).

Thank you OP for this post!

Congrats to everyone, and B.A.P, Ailee, happy for them.

gee 14th-Dec-2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
Happy Nell won! Unf Junghoon.
drfaith101 14th-Dec-2012 10:18 pm (UTC)
Eh Beast.

But yay for Ailee and Busker Busker
pepper 14th-Dec-2012 10:21 pm (UTC)
Busker Busker won the album daesang! <3

Why did Beast won the artist daesang though? I mean, their digital sales were nowhere near as good as Busker Busker's, BIGBANG's, PSY's and SISTAR's so... I'm confused. Anyway, congrats to them too.
tsuyoi_hikari 15th-Dec-2012 03:01 am (UTC)
I was puzzled for that one too. :O
hushmydarling 14th-Dec-2012 10:33 pm (UTC)
hyomin seemed to be the only one enjoying that t-ara perf, lolo, everyone else didn't even bother singing or smiling unless it was their part specifically
dori_liv 14th-Dec-2012 10:37 pm (UTC)
So happy for Double Sidekick
benihime99 14th-Dec-2012 10:40 pm (UTC)
"I love you" was meh
Dara was good but CL needs to stop screaming
devilsatin 14th-Dec-2012 10:43 pm (UTC)
Areum is cute!!
reelrecnizereel 14th-Dec-2012 10:46 pm (UTC)
CTFU That crowd was not having Titanic.
INFINITE - Hoya that intro was on point. Infinite your precision is breathe taking when you guys are performing. The cameraman was playing pure games tho.
B.A.P.- Everything was on point, having all that SWAT team was a bit much. I am surprised that the audio on those head mics were so good. I enjoyed Daehyun honey vocals.
JONGUP you are just the sex & that's all I refuse to believe otherwise.
You guys slayed the choreo.
Zelo you almost made me tear up.

omg ikr the camerawork during infinite's perf gave me headaches...
angela_derp_otp 14th-Dec-2012 10:49 pm (UTC)
there are so many wrongs with B2ST but it was really nice of them to mention Junsu's bday in their acceptance speech ;~;
___varying 14th-Dec-2012 11:06 pm (UTC)
BAP! Aww Jello bb. ;__; Youngjae was teary-eyed too. Congrats to Ailee as well! :D:D (I couldn't really tell what the fans were shouting during Ailee's acceptance speech, though - I hope it wasn't Zelo-focussed? Because that would have been in poor taste.)

Nell \o/ (I actually like The Day Before more than White Night, lol.)

Is the lack of SM artists due to them boycotting the awards/not turning up/etc. or poor digital sales?
tsuyoi_hikari 15th-Dec-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
Just poor digital sales imo. SM artists (except SNSD) are known to sell very poor digitally. :/
kiminikaeru 14th-Dec-2012 11:08 pm (UTC)
hoya killed it

t-ara's performance was such a mess but queenri looked great
es2pido 14th-Dec-2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
Hoya oppaaaaa
xalexandriam 14th-Dec-2012 11:08 pm (UTC)
lol how did b2st win anything?
naturalhonee 15th-Dec-2012 04:05 am (UTC)
Beast showed up, along with an army of their fans, so Melon chose to give them the last daesang to close out the awards show. having all their fans cheer as the MCs wrap up. woohooo success!

in reality, Beast even making the TOP 10 is debatable. i can think of several other artists whose achievements this year you could argue should have earned them a spot in the Top 10 over Beast.

the night would have ended so differently had Psy or BIGBANG attended.
es2pido 14th-Dec-2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
K-will oppa and Hoya oppa and Dongwoo oppa and Inpiniteu oppa and Twennywan oppa and Ailee oppa all my oppas are perfect
tokadah 14th-Dec-2012 11:11 pm (UTC)
all I care about-congtratz B.A.P!!!
strawberry_efeu 14th-Dec-2012 11:14 pm (UTC)
So happy for K.Will, B.A.P and Infinite♥

B.A.P's performance was amazing. Warrior is honestly their best title song, I hope they'll go back to that style soon;;;

Oh, and thanks for the post OP! It's so nicely formatted :)

aleexnews 14th-Dec-2012 11:15 pm (UTC)
these are no attendance, no award right? cause thats the only way beast ever wins. that daesang with the flop ass album they had, i just cant lmfao
dysphoriia 14th-Dec-2012 11:17 pm (UTC)
busker busker wasn't there. psy wasn't there.

i don't understand how beast got their daesang. i don't think they get it either.
in_noctem 14th-Dec-2012 11:15 pm (UTC)
STUPID ZELO ALMOST MADE ME TEAR UP I HAD TO LOOK AWAY and Ailee being adorable and patting him



B.A.P (still great despite the mic issues, I could only hear Yongguk and Youngjae I think?) + Nell had the best performances of the night. I was screaming when they performed Cliff Parade. K.Will and Infinite were great as well T___T
in_noctem 14th-Dec-2012 11:20 pm (UTC)
Oh and I really wanted In Guk + Eunji to perform :c Are there restrictions in performing OSTs or something?
dysphoriia 14th-Dec-2012 11:16 pm (UTC)
cringing when t-ara came on. no one smiled for them.

the show overall was okay, nothing exciting but not too terribly boring.

but melon, you fucked up giving beast the daesang. does not compute.

laeryn 14th-Dec-2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
Still have to watch a lot of things out of this, but here to say that, damn it, Hoya killed it and I loved K.Will feat H, and that intro! And yay for Eunji and Seo In Guk, love their song <3
hpn88 15th-Dec-2012 12:10 am (UTC)
Did t-ara get legit black oceaned? And lol beast winning.
Should have had BB win and CL could have accepted as a labelmate
beanii 15th-Dec-2012 12:46 am (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing, but I wasn't going to jump to assumptions.
It also looked like the crowd turned their backs on them.
xxmannequin 15th-Dec-2012 12:35 am (UTC)
And someone says BEAST aren't popular these days anymore...

So happy for B.A.P <3
