Dreamcatcher not being nominated for dance makes this whole award show invalid!

dior_chic 12th-Nov-2018 01:27 am (UTC)
Yea the dance performance section for girl group selection was pretty poor, wish Dreamcatcher was included. Or Loona, I loved their stages

Gfriend seriously wasn’t nominated for best dance performance...wow.

I will die if Fromis wins Rookie of the Year. Die. :D

99% sure Mnet will choose IZONE because they're a PD101 group
shuumi_miss 11th-Nov-2018 10:53 pm (UTC)
How am I supposed to choose between Park Hyo Shin, Roy Kim and Hwang Chi Yeul, Mnet? And how am I supposed to choose between Park Hyo Shin and Roy Kim for the other categories?

I will vote as soon as I remember my password, lol.

Geniune question, is jonghyun not qualified to be nominated for anything for these award shows?
vintage_boom 11th-Nov-2018 11:45 pm (UTC)
he's completely qualified and I'd love to hear the reason he wasn't because other than "he wasn't able to perform on mcountdown" there isn't any. no offense to zico and dean but neither made much of an impression this year with their digi singles and neither performed on mcountdown either.

i was gonna go to the japan one until i found out how much tickets are 😂 no thanks

vintage_boom 11th-Nov-2018 11:48 pm (UTC)
best new female might as well skip because it'll be iZ*ONE

other than that the only interesting races to me are Best Solo Dance, Best Female, and Best Unit
babyjenkski 12th-Nov-2018 04:39 am (UTC)
I'm still hoping for (G)I-DLE to get it

"Best New Male Artist"
...doesn't know anyone listed.

And OMG...voting for best female solo artist; how am I supposed to pick one?

I skipped most of the boy group questions and tbh I don’t follow these voting things too closely but it was fun to vote

I showed fromis 9 some love, they really won me over this year with their latest release. I wish love bomb was song or MV of the year because I’m legit obsessed. Hyolyn and Chung Ha too, of course. As for male soloist I really like Dean, Instagram is one of my fav songs in general
dior_chic 12th-Nov-2018 01:33 am (UTC)
This too showed me this was a great debut year for girl groups - Fromis 9, Loona, (g) Idle, GSWN, I just discovered how cool Nature recently with their cover projects - it was a good year for new girl groups and female soloists ❤️

Hyolyn deserves to win the award for Best Solo Dance Performance because girlie put in the WORK with Aliya Janell. Here's a BTS clip she showed at her concert on Saturday that showed how much she put into it.

Its obvious whatever BTS is apart of they will win....kpop is so dry.
benihime99 12th-Nov-2018 02:52 am (UTC)
No idle?
babyjenkski 12th-Nov-2018 04:40 am (UTC)
If you mean (G)I-DLE, they're there for Best New Female Artist
neongoldtooth 12th-Nov-2018 03:06 am (UTC)
I wish Shinee was in best dance performance because honestly 'Good Evening' was so refreshing and different. I don't care if they won but would have like to seen them recognized for their dance. As well as Best Vocal Performance Group cuz damn they killed it with their latest releases.
And would have loved to see Jonghyun in either Best Male Artist and/or Best Vocal Performance Solo :/

Best Dance Performance Female Group should definitely have Dreamcatcher too!! They go so hard on all of their choreography.
babyjenkski 12th-Nov-2018 04:42 am (UTC)
Lovely to see my faves nominated but the chances of them winning is very slim even if they deserve it. Of course I'm talking about BTOB (Best Group Vocals), (G)I-DLE (Best New Female Artist) and PENTAGON (Best Dance).
