2019 VMA's nominees, including new category: Best K-Pop

The 2019 VMA's nominations have been announced and there's a brand new Best K-Pop category.

Some say it's a great opportunity to give exposure to kpop by having its own category, most say it separates kpop groups (mainly BTS) so they don't compete with western bands and actually win. Additional to Best Kpop, BTS' Boy With Luv is nominated for Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction and Best Choreography.

VMA's will air next Monday (lol), August 26.

Omona, what do you think? Will any of them show up? Why is TXT there and not Twice? Who still cares about the VMAs?

Not that I want to give MTV too much credence (though in my youth it was revolutionary) but the inclusion of cat & dog makes this lose all credibility. Cat & Dog makes mmmbop look mature. (nothing against the boys, I'm sure they'll grow up into something amazing.)

It is a focus on videos, though, and korea does some nice videos.

Hey, careful with Mmmbop, it's actually a great song with an actual message and serious meaning /Hanson stan since 1997.

But I get you, the VMAs were groundbreaking in every way: videos nominated, categories, performances that were voted by actual experts in video filming. Now they're on a Monday, the same 6 artists are nominated every year and not even they bother to attend anymore.

how about it makes mmmmbop look visually mature?

you're right, the song itself wasn't the best comparison.

Mte about mmmbop, a song about the fleetingness of human connections and uncertainties in life #i'ma90skid
