So I listened to Exodus b/c based on sales it'll win AOTY. i know there aren't a lot of Shinhwa fans here but a lot of this album sounds like it was made for Shinhwa 10 years ago. With Hurt I could actually pick out in my head "that would be Hyesung's line and that would be Dongwan's". I guess the album's not bad, just dated even by kpop standards and makes me think SM hasn't changed its general boy group sound in years.

and "What if" reminded me of this song I totally forgot existed

OMG YES! i always heard bone thugs in the beginning but this too!

I haven't been able to listen or follow to much of Exo bc my heart aches for Exo m ... But I wouldn't be surprised if it matches with old shinhwa. Sm follows a very specific formula and shinhwa was supposed to be their golden child so the group makeup follows the SM standard.

EXODUS has some insane level if production, especially for a Kpop album. Their overall sound is reminicent of Shinhwa but I'd hardly call it dated. There's a difference between throwing back to an old school sound (which EXO does a lot of) and tracks actually being dated. But that's just my opinion.

HDU! Shinhwa's music is 10x more catchy and melodic! Still have : Angel, Midnight Girl, Crazy, Young Gunz, T.O.P, forever in my itouch, every-time i reset it, i make sure those songs are in there for when i feel like going back to that nostalgic time of Kpop.

The winners are pretty obvious so I'm just going to watch the performance cuts when they get uploaded to youtube

wow @ Seventeen being nominated for the disk award when they debuted just 6 months ago. Monster rookies indeed.
The daesangs are gonna be so predictable again tho lol. If 80% of the criteria are digital/physical it's gonna be for BB/EXO again and everyone else only can expect the bonsang at most.

Wait.. what is the cut off date of GDA? because At Gwanghwamun was 2014.

Also, if the criteria for physical Bonsang is sales, I think SJ D&E Beat Goes On should be up there, but yea, I might be biased.

Anyway, winners gonna be predictable as always, so I'd just wait for any interesting performances during the show.

does korea not have a legit music awards show? like grammy-esq (even tho the grammys r still kinda full of shit)?

because i'm looking at the nominees and the criteria and i'm just like....? ...? ...? i wish there was more of a musical mixture here. i'm happy a lot of my faves were nominated but still....
