The '2016 MelOn Music Awards' was held on November 19 at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul!

The awards show, which is holding its 8th year, has established itself as one of the big four music awards ceremonies in South Korea alongside the 'Mnet Asian Music Awards', 'Golden Disk Awards', and 'Seoul Music Awards'. The 'MelOn Music Awards' is noted for its emphasis on digital sales and public votes to determine its winners.

This year's top 10 artists were chosen from a pool of 30 artists who had the highest Melon chart scores for the year, narrowing it down by combining fan votes (20%) and chart scores (80%).

So proud of EXO hogging all the awards! Baek's tears got me all teared up...

crystalCassie91 Sunday, November 20, 2016

You know, Although all three top winners are great and well deserved.. I've gotta say, I'm really impressed that BTS made it up there even tho they are not from the big three companies.. That is REALLY impressive!!

crystalCassie91 Sunday, November 20, 2016

I just realized something... where is GOT7? It's not that I'm a big fan or anything... but weren't they also the talk of the year? They should get at least one award...

crystalCassie91 Sunday, November 20, 2016

I'm glad that the top three awards are EXO, BTS, and Twice.. They certainly were the most talked of during the year... The old kpop groups that always used to be in these shows are slowly disappearing that it's sad... these three groups will be representing kpop for several years in the future...

Why justin though? I thought Ariana deserved it more though. She has great vocals too ;)

exo_bts_vip xXxNoOnexXx Sunday, November 20, 2016

I prefer Shawn but since Justin won I had to congratulate him, I know it means a lot to him
