NCT really did amazing for their perf. I hope the styling is an indicator of their next comeback.

the fuckery SMA pulled to get Exo-L to attend and pay to vote just so they could use their lightsticks is next level.

lmaooooo ikr, Exo clearly recorded their acceptance speech at the GDA based on their outfits, but even like two days ago SMA was still including them in the line-up and promo materials and saying they couldn't confirm Exo's attendance yet. 🙄

Exo-Ls were really cute cheering for other SM artists though! They're doing fanchants for NCT here, but I heard they learned the ones for RV and SuJu too:

It's always so sweet when fans support other fandoms like that T_T

Exo had this Japanese schedule booked for like 2 weeks too but seeing the lightsticks being controlled is really telling on why they never announced that they wouldn't be there until last minute.

I'm totally fine with exo not winning, that doesn't matter, it just sucks that to vote you had to pay and people bought tickets just to be used as a lighting prop basically.

BTS fans could have easily filed up the venue and had a really cool moment with their group winning the Daesang.

Took the biggest shit, took the biggest shit on the stage

They did so well! I love Limitless sfm. And don't judge me, but I'm always thought Mark was such a good but this perf.... damn I find his rapping sexy tbh and I'm pushing 30 helpppp

Idk if it's my headset or what, but the microphones during svt's performance sounded so off during Clap (or not on at all) which is sad because they can definitely sing.. there's no reason to have them lip syncing.

Congrats to all of the winners!
Monsta X in those collars/belts (idk what they are) and shirtless under their jackets made me feel things. They looked really good.
BTS were so cute during Bang Si Hyuk' s acceptance speech. Jin with that rose in his mouth was soo extra and V and Jimin holding the vase and name tag from the table was hilarious.

Ok I haven't taken the time to see the other performances yet but wow I mean I'm a fan but even I have to say this was not a good day for got7 performance-wise lol (that dance break w my man in the middle was 🔥 tho).

Also JB's really going for a mullet look huh

lmao I was about to say. I knew things were only going to go downhill when they included that rap break (WHY) and Jinyoung struggled from the first line.
camouflagecat 26th-Jan-2018 09:11 am (UTC)
When Jinyoung opened his mouth I was just like

The rap was break... Jackson raps like he thinks his lyrics are fire but I'm listening to it like

but then again apparently they and Jackson trended on naver and they got praises for their vocals so idk yay I guess lmao

also idk why all the Britney gifs there just seemed to be one for every emotion I felt and I just went with it lol
juhli 27th-Jan-2018 05:25 pm (UTC)
love your britney recap of the performance lol
mortkero 28th-Jan-2018 10:41 pm (UTC)
Just listened. Jackson's rap wasn't that bad! I mean compared to Papillon and the Pepsi song. Not knowing what he was rapping probably helped.

As for the singing, to me Jinyoung didn't look well?

They were really good at the Clive awards performance so this is a bit disappointing, they sounded tired. I hope they get some rest.
daynr 26th-Jan-2018 05:00 am (UTC)
Like, what even was that? They started out looking kind of hot (not you Mark, you're hot, what are you doing in that outfit with your hair like that?) but then it is just STOP JACKSON. (is this what we have to look forward to until China stops banning hiphop?)

And they didn't sound good either, none of them. What happened? Youngjae and JB have been bringing heat for the last 6 months and then *splat*.

(ok, they were still hot but not the same level)
22_taken 26th-Jan-2018 08:16 am (UTC)
It might be surprising for some, but for the first time they trended for a long time on Naver after that performance and reached #1 in trends. Jackson trended too and non fans praised their vocals..
camouflagecat 26th-Jan-2018 09:00 am (UTC)
Oh, really? Well, I mean, people can say what they want about Jackson's music, but he wouldn't be successful if there weren't people that like what he put out lol. This is great news though.
camouflagecat 26th-Jan-2018 09:14 am (UTC)
Youngjae and JB have been bringing heat for the last 6 months and then *splat*.

Hmm, maybe that's why, maybe they should let their voices rest a little. You can't expect them to always have good vocal days, it's just a shame it was at an award show (at least we know they always sing live lol).

My favorite moment: BTOB accepting their first Bonsang! From the moment they stood up from their table, being congratulated by their peers, walking towards the stage, and of course that cute way of accepting the trophy...everything was BTOBed. Like what Eunkwang said, this is their first Bonsang which they got seven years into their career so the will work hard to get the Daesang which they might receive on their 30th year =) I love my oldies!

My favorite performances: BTOB (of course!), BTS (Nice dance break! And Changsub must've been doing something weird/cute that he was focused for a few seconds during DNA), Red Velvet (I love Red Flavor)

Quick question how tf did mamamoo win a dance award lmao

citzera 26th-Jan-2018 12:41 am (UTC)
I started bawling when Taemin thanked Jonghyun in his "speech".
Also, Taemin uploading a short message with a picture after the win❤️

The tribute video got Jonghyun's birth year wrong. How hard can that be to double-check??
lightframes 26th-Jan-2018 03:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, a quick Internet search would have fixed that...
donaldjdrumpf 27th-Jan-2018 06:28 am (UTC)
Congrats to EXO on their Fandom School Award (Daesang?)!
juhli 27th-Jan-2018 05:28 pm (UTC)
Seventeen dish out a new combination of performances for every award show, they are amazing. But a different part of HIghlight would have been better, the chorus felt kinda empty and I could only hear Hoshi shouting Highlight.
sra_interesante 27th-Jan-2018 09:07 pm (UTC)
my favorite was Yeri moving to IU table to chat with her and give her a hot pack while she waited for her award

i love how iu manager love for red velvet is turning into a friendship, now rv girls are so comfortable around her
