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?

are they segregating them to keep them from wining the pop categories?

Yep, especially considering that boy with luv has more sales/views than most if not all of the pop songs nominated (I'm too lazy to look up all the numbers rn but I know they're at least comparable with others in that category)
