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?

ah. connections. makes sense. They should specify that this is kpop in the US. not kpop, THE WHOLE DANG GENRE OF KOREAN POP.

I was trying to think if all of the ones included promoted at some point in the US (outside of fan concerts). Like Blackpink doing Coachella and BTS being freaking everywhere.

did not know EXO/SM has ties with Disney. Is there ANYTHING Disney doesn't have a hand in?

technically everyone on the list minus exo have released tracks for US radio/audiences specifically (that's why cat & dog is nominated

exo feels like a "lets not invoke the wrath/use exo-l's for social media hits" but maybe SM's planning on pushing exo-sc in the us? idk
