Twice didn't actually win, Red Velvet told in advance that they couldn't go so the award went to Twice who won second place, after Red Velvet.

_CLeO ShyHyolove Sunday, December 4, 2016

Really? For which award exactly?

Gotse7enn ShyHyolove Monday, December 5, 2016

lol delulu SM fangirl. This year was twice's year.

_CLeO Gotse7enn Monday, December 5, 2016

As much as I hate to admit ☻

Jamlessfordays99 ShyHyolove Tuesday, December 6, 2016

I read that Red Velvet were told they couldn't go. But I wondered why. I'll have to agree with Gotse7enn on this one though, this year was TWICE's year.

micki_minach365 Gotse7enn Friday, December 9, 2016

she probably assumed that RV is going to win based on that irrelevant fanvotes lol, it was pretty obvious twice is gonna win xD

kimmiefonze Sunday, December 4, 2016

Fame is not a race but a marathon. Don't be cocky just because your faves are "killing it" these past few years since that is expected from rookie groups. All these awards are well-deserved and won with hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. Be proud of your biases but don't belittle those who didn't win because the world is round and you will never know who will dominate in the future.

Yuzy_Stal_Ker Sunday, December 4, 2016

I'm really upset that they only give awards to people who have attend, to me, B2ST deserve the best vocal group award(I'm not saying tht Davichi do not deserve) I mean, in terms lf online voting, sales and research all those, it's b2st for sure, follow by mamamoo then btob then davichi. It's either the "exper" judges just judge blindly or Mnet just false the result.I understand the fact people are trying to say tht CNBlue get the award despite them not attending. For this case, non of the band attend! Which is why they gave it to the actual winner beforehand. For Blackpink case, well, think about it, wouldn't it be rediculous if a trending rookie girl group right now did not win anything at all despite their high popularity. And afterall, I guess they are trying to pay back to what they did to YG (tbh, this part i'm not sure as well, I heard it somewhere that YG n Mnet had some issues around middle of this year)Another thing is Red Velvet, it was upsetting that they never win anything (although it was expected becuase they never attend and they are from SM). I thought that they would at least win the Best Dance Performance Female Group award as in terms of sales, online voting, research, Red Velvet is leading. But well, at least it is Gfriend who won the dance performance, if it is Twice, I'll be speechless (I'm sry ONCE if you're offended, but Cheer Up choreography is not complicating and hmm...I don't know how to explain but dancers should understand what I'm trying to imply)

bangeryun94 Yuzy_Stal_Ker Wednesday, December 7, 2016

I believe that myth has been dispelled by Black Pink winning and not being there.

Twice5ever Saturday, December 3, 2016

yes!!! twice forever! see twice is dominating the charts and always winning! your other girl and boy groups can be compared. watch our tt video's views are soaring! soon we'll even beat out the "kings" big bang since we already beat EXO and BTS!!

micki_minach365 Twice5ever Saturday, December 3, 2016

I support twice since they are all pretty other groups are ugly, they can just watch twice take the top of kpop world.

jpnAyelor micki_minach365 Saturday, December 3, 2016

Can they sing tho

jpnAyelor Saturday, December 3, 2016

You know. Kinda what music is about

jjangyoona Twice5ever Saturday, December 3, 2016

Congratulations upon Twice's success. But I don't think it's the right attitude to degrade other artist, especially a senior like Big Bang.

micki_minach365 jpnAyelor Sunday, December 4, 2016

Are you new to kpop? kpop these days don't give a shit about singing lmao

mxisluv micki_minach365 Sunday, December 4, 2016

Errr BlackPink is pretty. AND they can sing.

micki_minach365 mxisluv Sunday, December 4, 2016

well I agree but I watched their vapp live, they're baby talking too much, its so cringey I had to stop... its okay to act cutely but know when to stop lmao

jpnAyelor micki_minach365 Monday, December 5, 2016

Baby talking is def cringe

balladlover Twice5ever Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Sorry, but those words are arrogant. You're forgetting that it was EXO's sub-unit CBX and not the whole group. Both Twice and EXO are from the Big 3, so it's expected they would do well on the charts. You're forgetting that EXO is their senior, so don't get so cocky when they haven't competed against the whole group. Yes they did beat BTS, but BTS was already finished with their promotions at that time. BTS are from a small company, so yes they had a rough start and slow climb, but they’re having an impact with their music. Do Twice’s songs tell stories in which people can relate to? I’m not degrading any group here, but you can’t exactly compare groups with different tastes and styles. It’s still a bit early. You sound really sure that they’ll BIGBANG. We’ll have to see since both have albums they’ll be releasing soon. And even if BIGBANG is short one member, it takes far more than a rookie group who won two daesangs in a single year to knock them over. They beat out BTS except for music video views, record times, and other things, but they did make it into the 20 Best Albums of 2016? Did they debut at number 26 on the Billboard 200? Did they place #1 on the Social 50 chart? Twice is on fire. It’s only been a little over a year since their debut, but don’t act arrogant. So you’re saying they can be compared to BIGBANG. Okay then. Do Twice play an important role in composing and producing their own music? Have they won more awards and set more records than BIGBANG? If so, then you can speak like that, but if Twice seem promising or more than promising which has not yet been confirmed, don’t act arrogant about it. Oh and Twice, EXO, and BIGBANG have winter albums. Are you sure they’ll beat out the kings of kpop soon? So you can brag about Twice being better when they do beat their seniors.

balladlover Wednesday, December 7, 2016

*You sound really sure that they’ll beat BIGBANG.

balladlover Thursday, December 8, 2016

Sorry my computer is laggy. *They beat out BTS for music video views, record times, and other things, but they did make it into the 20 Best Albums of 2016?

micki_minach365 balladlover Thursday, December 8, 2016

this is SPARTAAAA! hahahaha

balladlover micki_minach365 Thursday, December 8, 2016

Gee um thx, but not all girl groups are ugly. And twice still needs time before taking over because they have other girl groups who are vying for the spot. SNSD has not made a comeback, but they will. They have been the nation’s top girl group which means they won’t go down that easily. Don’t forget it only took Blackpink 13 days from the day their mv was released to win 1st place on a music show. Don’t rule out the fact that they needed only two songs to score huge points whereas Twice needed an album. There are other contenders such as Red Velvet and G-friend, plus more groups are debuting. You’re saying BlackPink is cringey and acting all cute. Isn’t Twice the same then? Twice is from JYP. Based on what’s happened before JYP is all about fun and cute. Other people respect Twice but do find their songs too sweet in other words a bit cringey. If you mean by the fact that girl groups are ugly because they went under the knife, then that’s arguable. Several stars have gone under the knife, but the current ones have not, so it’s understandable to think in such a manner. However, if girl groups were so ugly, why would they have fans even after past photos are dug up. Why would there be people who say that looks don’t matter in the end? Isn’t is better to judge a person based on who they are and not for their looks? Isn’t that what we all have been taught? Yes, the industry works differently since it’s mainly about looks, but there will be always something that contradicts that in a good way. We have seen a glimpse of BlackPink’s vocals. Twice as well. We have not seen both groups’ full potentials yet. Rose has good high notes. Check out G-Dragon’s Without You. If the industry isn’t about singing these days then why would fans seek out certain vocalists? If it wasn’t about singing, then how do some of these kpop groups make it so far? If it wasn’t about singing, why would there be solo albums? If it wasn’t about singing how would idols who go solo do so well on the charts? If it wasn’t about singing why do they still continue to sing? If it wasn’t about singing, why are people’s hearts moved by those who sing?

jpnAyelor balladlover Friday, December 9, 2016

I think it's cringey when blackpink does it because they have this strong image versus twice who's theme is basically around cuteness.

jpnAyelor Friday, December 9, 2016

And people just have to write catchy songs for it to be a hit and some autotune. & you know which group member has good vocals because they end up going solo

micki_minach365 jpnAyelor Friday, December 9, 2016

yeah! they're overdoing it, it looks forced. :P

balladlover jpnAyelor Friday, December 9, 2016

BIGBANG and BTS make their own music. Their songs are catchy. BIGBANG have that distinct style, same for BTS, but their songs are stories in which people can easily relate to and also because they’re honest. Yeah they shed their strong girl feeling when doing v apps, but they’re not the only groups who are different off of stage. Take G-Dragon for example, he gives off a powerful stage presence, but there have been incidents in which he is actually revealed to be shy. BAP, B2ST, BTOB, TVXQ, and JYJ have killer performances in which autotune is not required to showcase their vocals. A lot of artists use it. There should be no problem. Singing is one thing, but combined with fierce choreography is another. It doesn’t degrade artists. Ballads sung by artists live are proof that their voices are top notch. I won’t deny what you said about a catchy song is right. Another factor to consider is that Twice is from one of the big 3. It’s not necessarily an excuse, but rather the reality. Artists from the Big 3 have won Artist of the Year at MAMA, until this year. Going back to Blackpink on their off stage appearance, it’s v live. They want to show their fans despite the fierce presence they possess on stage they’re simply average girls at heart when it comes to off stage. It’s not cute voices every second, but their fans don’t seem to mind. Just don’t watch Blackpink on v live if they’re that cringey.

Twice5ever balladlover Wednesday, January 4, 2017

They've beat some of big bangs records already so

balladlover Twice5ever Thursday, January 5, 2017

It's only Youtube views. And back in the 2000s BIGBANG practically carried the company on their backs. It's because of BIGBANG YG is even one of the Big 3.

balladlover Twice5ever Thursday, January 5, 2017

Even so, BIGBANG have managed to stay on top despite it being over a decade. Twice are no doubt successful, but it's still way too early to say they are what at BIGBANG's level. Their songwriter will need to work harder to come up with another song.

_CLeO Saturday, December 3, 2016

This is totally random but I think Oh My Girl's Windy Day choreography is one of the best dance performances this year despite what the awards say.

tangy Saturday, December 3, 2016

I've stayed quiet for the whole day observing people's comments. Never in my 11+ years of being a K-pop fan have I seen such a disrespectful, immature fandom. ARMYs, I'm talking about you. Your boys have worked SO, SO hard. You know how hard it was for them to achieve something like this. So WHY, WHY are you so damn cocky about what, their 1st? 2nd? Daesung. The things I've seen said about Big Bang and EXO, sunbaes who I know BTS respects are disgusting. I know some of y'all might be new to K-pop but there's something called RESPECT. Respect for the sunbaes who came before you who paved the way for you. So please, cherish this moment and cherish this award and please act like your precious BTS are reading your words and have some class.

_CLeO tangy Saturday, December 3, 2016

Thank you for saying this because SOME PEOPLE NEED TO WAKE UP

MickeyC7914 tangy Saturday, December 3, 2016

The amount of fans that are saying that "BTS ended Exo" or "Big Bang is over" is ridiculous. BTS has a long way to go before they can be put on the same level as Big Bang or Exo. Exo went through it with their first Daesangs and had to continuously prove why they were on top before they were accepted as the new wall of Kpop (though they are still people who don't believe this). BTS, though yes, did well this year, has a long road ahead of them.

Multifandom_hoe tangy Sunday, December 4, 2016

OMG on behalf of ARMYs ..we are so sorry. Like wtf ARMYs? BTS has just won 2 daesangs just 2 and you're bragging? Permit me to say you can brag when you get to Big Bang's or even EXO' s level!! Yes one day we will get there but if y'all start putting up this shitty attitude from the start you will be ruining BTS' chances...did you see how they were bawling when they got the award? That's because they worked way too hard for it. Seriously immature ARMYs, I will find you and slap motherfucking sense into your destiny if you don't stop.

d0_kyunqso tangy Sunday, December 4, 2016

It is mostly just younger immature fans who do this so please do not generalize the entire fandom. No matter what you say these immature fans will never understand so there is no point in calling the ARMY fandom "disrespectful, immature". Honestly, I'm so done. It's like no one remembers how much hate the EXO fandom got when they reached their first HIGH peak in popularity. With peak in popularity comes A MASS of immature and young fans. And every fandom has it. Currently BTS' fandom looks bad because they just recently got hugely popular and it sucks that people have to generalize a fandom. The majority isn't "cocky" we're proud, we're happy. Don't talk about 11 years. Obviously with HUGE increase in social media it's easier to see the bad apples in a fandom, but every successful and popular group has had their fair share.

BTS_ARMY3 tangy Monday, December 5, 2016

On behalf of ARMYs I'm terribly sorry for our Immature fans. But please, PLEASE, do not generalize us! and dont act like we are the only fandom that has Immature fans! Why do ARMYs become cocky u say? It's not that we became cocky, we just became really Proud of our Boys! I understand that some are really cocky, but doesnt other fandoms become cocky as well when they win awards?..for example Exo-ls(Im not generalizing them), but some of them become really cocky, and over protective, because EXO became really successful and they think they will win all the awards, all the time! they become over protective that they hate BTS, because they are "stealing" their awards, and saying that BTS does'nt deserve these Daesangs! (Who in the right mind would say that). Everyone deserves something and just because ur faves has more fans than the other, doesn't mean they are the best at everything! this doesn't only go to Exo-ls but all the fandoms! STOP GENERALIZING FANDOMS, cause no matter what u say every damn fandoms has Immature fans!

bangeryun94 tangy Friday, December 9, 2016

Here's a news flash for you sweetie. The quickest way to get kicked out of the BTS fandom is to talk trash about another group. It simply is not permitted, is disrespectful and Big Hit does not tolerate it. THAT'S how I KNOW nobody talking shit about any group ESPECIALLY EXO is connected to ARMY at all. I'm not having this bullshit. I've told you people this and it doesn't seem to sink in. Go take care of the bad apples in your own fandom because WE don't have any and frankly I'm done with the shit stirrers pretending to be ARMY. Everybody was having a good time and enjoying the awards until a few trolling assholes got on the article and tried to bait fans of BTS so again please go check those naughty little puppies who want to shit all over the accomplishments made by ALL groups. And if you come across any ARMY humiliating or insulting fans or groups please give me their name. Not much I can do about fakes but if they genuinely want to call themselves ARMY they'll learn to respect all artists and their fans.

tangy bangeryun94 Monday, December 26, 2016

here's one for ya ^^ Twitter: @pjmdefence

bangeryun94 tangy Monday, December 26, 2016

I'm not on Twitter but I'll send someone who is. Thanks

whateverman Saturday, December 3, 2016

I'm not the type to bring down idol groups but there is no way you can say TWICE deserved their awards. Yes they probably do work hard and all that but so do other groups and they are much more talented + have better songs. TWICE's songs are catchy as hell but that doesn't mean they're of good quality. I admit TT was better than their previous songs though. I am really upset that they won their awards. Anybody else feel the same?

_CLeO whateverman Saturday, December 3, 2016

I think so too. Cheer Up was bound to get the 'Song Of The Year' award tho. But I really think that MAMAMOO should have received 'Best Female Group'

whateverman _CLeO Saturday, December 3, 2016

YES. Mamamoo's vocals are no joke but they don't have the popularity yet to have the support necessary to win most awards

whateverman Saturday, December 3, 2016

*most awards that they get nominated for.

livie_xcx whateverman Saturday, December 3, 2016

cheer up was the song of the year, like the whole korea was shook. it has stayed in chart for months, won a lot of awards, i dont get why are u all so surprised by their win, cheer up was the song of the year in korea, get over it. i agree with best female group tho, i think mamamoo or red velvet should win this, but they were no there, so they didnt win.

livie_xcx Saturday, December 3, 2016


_CLeO whateverman Sunday, December 4, 2016

Yes thats true, I feel like MAMAMOO need a popularity boost.

Gotse7enn whateverman Monday, December 5, 2016

oh please look at Their digital sale this year.
