yes iz*one performed highlight! the dance was a lot simpler than I expected, but yes to a live performance from them.

chungha's stage was pretty cool with the focus on the dancers, she's such a supportive person.

I like that dawon is always getting lines in their covers, but obligatory she needs more screentime yo.

and that twice performance, it felt like I didn't see Nayeon much even though she has so many lines? and ooo korean breakthrough, would like a longer version of that

So what's the difference between a next generation star and a new artist?

Was so excited to see Twice perform Breakthrough, why is it such a short excerpt???

This version of gogobebe was actually pretty cool, but their performance seemed weirdly lacklustre for Mamamoo (not vocally, of course)

Pentagon are so fucking cute.

Twice’s Breakthrough+ Fancy is a great combination and I love both titles. They did great on stage and I lost count of how many new dance breaks they do every time. Itzy rocked their first awards event and Yeji crying had me emotional, they’re such bbs. All the girl groups interacting was awesome to see. ❤️

Twice might be one of the only groups that actually makes an effort for award shows. They add something new in every show, and it's refreshing to see but worrying when you think of the amount of work that requires. I wish they'd get a break already TT

Obligatory 'the camerawork is awful' comment

yesssss congrats to wjsn, pentagon & iz*one!!!!

I watched a few performances but the camera work was generally terrible. And I'm not sensitive to that sort of thing

Congrats to the artists that won though. Seems like pretty fair results
