European K-Pop Awards 2012


The European K-Pop Awards – So-Loved Awards – are going to the next round. Since 2011 they have been showing the annual atmosphere in the European K-Pop fan community and are an indicator for which idols and hits can break into the European market.

This year all the fans living in Europe are invited to vote for their songs, videos and artists as well. The fans are able to vote for 16 categories, which will be complemented by 3 Special Awards. The Special Awards will be appointed by the teams of the German K-Pop community So-Loved and the K-Colors of Korea magazine.

Partner of the  Awards are the Korean Cultural Center, KOFICE, KBS and Germany Meets Korea, the online portal of the Germany embassy in Seoul, amongst others.

The online voting starts on the 1st of November and ends at midnight on the 17th of November. The award show will also take place in December this year. Related information and specifications will soon be published on the official website: http://awards.so-loved.net/

I had the official website for the Time Warp opened in another tab. Then I read KPOP I was like WHAT
Do all German pages look like this ? haha

I'm surprised I didn't see Super Junior in any category ?

Ah, you must've just missed them, they're nominated for Male Band.
petitpoisbleu 6th-Nov-2012 11:26 pm (UTC)
Ah right, thanks. I concentrated on voting for SHINee so I haven't really paid much attention.

No problem, I was looking for them anyway. Suju's absence from the Song category seems a bit odd, cause they managed to find room for both Big Bang AND G-Dragon solo.

Tbh that entire category looks messed up, only two female groups out of ten, really...?

well that's awkward

yeah...these nominees i mean...how is after school not even nominated for japanese releases? their japanese material is top notch! or kara or soshi for that matter. DO NOT APPROVE.

and only boy groups for choreography? ummmmm...what is this, the nugu awards? not saying that some of these rookie groups dont deserve nods (YAY SPICA!) but...c'mon... and lol at CNB under rock. nothing for FTI...

we need to have the omona awards or some shit.

I'm sure we have an Omona Awards ceremony. Didn't Suju win Best Male group here last year.

laughing at how yg and nugu biased this is. no gg for female band? bs. is this run by all fangirls or...? because all I see is boy bands.

looking back, the full albums this year kinda sucked.
ashiva 6th-Nov-2012 11:40 pm (UTC)
GG as a whole group hasn't promoted anything this year in Korea though.
vvipforseungri 6th-Nov-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
tts, then. which, by the way, I enjoyed a lot more than Flower Power anyway.
verinka1 6th-Nov-2012 11:35 pm (UTC)
When did this happen??
bflayhd 6th-Nov-2012 11:37 pm (UTC)
No fiestar for upcoming female? =(

Or no Soshi, 4 Minute, or After School or even Orange Caramel in Japan Releases?!?!

or TVXQ who were crazy with releases in Japan this year and where multiple times on Oricon charts as number 1.
ashiva 6th-Nov-2012 11:41 pm (UTC)
So many nugus as nominees!
riyaan 6th-Nov-2012 11:43 pm (UTC)
Whoever put the nominee's in these category knows nothing of Kpop or just put up their favourites. Above all the lack of TVXQ and other groups seriously has me dumbfounded. Also how on this Earth can you not have Xiah Junsu nominated for best album? Have these people no ears? I never really thought I'd find anything worse than the MAMA awards!

The categories and nominees are weird, but I voted anyway. I don't think they'll have much importance...
miss_pioupiou 7th-Nov-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
I'm surprised, the partners are pretty big but the website looks... so unprofessional. The nominations are pretty lulzy too.
the_erotomanic 7th-Nov-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
i really don't know why .net exists. and i don't like opening websites that end with .net.
benihime99 7th-Nov-2012 07:06 am (UTC)
BoA is not on the solo female artist... that is weird
No SuJu or Psy for best song or video??
No Arang for drama?

Is this a fansite?
soramai 7th-Nov-2012 12:05 pm (UTC)
But not french language, meh.
And lol, I hope it doesn't represent the tastes of my fellow europeans kpok fans ...
goshipgurl 7th-Nov-2012 01:13 pm (UTC)
so embarrassed to be german right now.
flop "award show" is flop
xxmannequin 7th-Nov-2012 07:57 pm (UTC)
What the f... No TVXQ? Are you kidding me?
nudecolors 7th-Nov-2012 09:18 pm (UTC)
