red velvet largely ignored, kinda weird. they’ve had a good year digitally.

blooming day and thanks getting the recognition they deserve, yes!

i hope chungha wins best dance!
i’m still not over how good sean’s ep is. i listen to it everyday.

APink doing well makes me happy as they’re a group of ‘older’ female idols, I’m glad their fans are loyal and not ditching them since they’re not teens anymore

Jesus Trot is so fucking stacked this year, how do I vote?

Also "Thanks" in dance is the correct choice good work MMA.
babyjenkski 14th-Nov-2018 09:04 pm (UTC)
I'm just so happy to see BTOB up there!
rainstormraider 14th-Nov-2018 09:17 pm (UTC)
Uh, BTS for Best Rap/Hiphop? But not for Best Dance (Male)?
Big Bang for Best R&B/Soul? How?
No Twice or Red Velvet on Best Song?
Where is Red Velvet on Best Artist, Best Album, Best Dance (Female)?
Where is BlackPink on Netizen Popularity?

Some of these are random af.

Pleasantly surprised to see an equal amount of male and female artists in the top 10 ranking
lydzi 14th-Nov-2018 09:43 pm (UTC)
Where the hell is GOT7 in this?
myungung 15th-Nov-2018 03:08 pm (UTC)
the boys don't do very well digitally, and it was only this year they picked up with it, so I'm not too surprised by their lack of representation here
ggumd 14th-Nov-2018 09:55 pm (UTC)
Red velvet did amazingly well digital wise this year (especially on melon) so how are they not in the top 10 artist category?

iirc that category is 80% digital and 20% fan voting so how are they not in the top 10 but like exo is there especially when its based on digital sales lol melon stays shady

i'll never trust all these lying, cheating, money-sucking award show after what happened in 2016-2017.
kenziekinz09 15th-Nov-2018 04:28 pm (UTC)
RV had multiple PAK and hit melon roof??? This is fake news
torontok 15th-Nov-2018 06:58 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping The Boyz can snag male rookie at this show. They have slightly better digitals than Stray Kids while they're fairly even with physical sales
