so so happy for jaejoong! this is so amazing that he won this award right after coming out of army! though i am sad that he couldnt win the best artist award too, but at least that one went to shinee (another favourite group of mine), so it was not that bad! But the battle for the win between the fans of the two was fierce, i must say! such a minute difference!

I'm so happy for Jaejoong! :) Also, it's nice to see that "veteran" artists like Sechskies, Jaejoong and SHINee still could win the heart of people. :)

Based on the gaon chart i saw, shouldnt lee juck and han donggeun won instead of lee hi and mamamoo ?? also, eunji ranked more than suzy&baekhyun collabo in download and streaming chart of tthe year. company do have effect on artist's award after all

Problem is this is not Gaon Chart Awards, this is GDA. And the voting app for GDA specifies that winners are chosen by looking at digital sales(70%), org committee eval. (20%) n fan votes(10%). From what u said, i figure u forgot to include the 30% in ur calculation. Sometime, its better to check the facts 1st before doubting the credibility of everything.

I still don't understand how this works... out of all the Korean music awards go, I still have to figure how the Daesang work

johnfig ygbad_boy Saturday, January 14, 2017

As specified in GDA voting app, day 1 winners for digital song division including daesang is digital sale of song(70%), org. Committee eval. (20%) n fan votes(10%). For day 2 winners of album division including daesang are chosen by looking at album sales(70%), and 30% same as day 1. So, makes sense twice won daesang on 1st day because they have highest digital sales in 2016. U can go check. And exo won daesang on 2nd day. They have highest album sales.

see the whole 1 day and 2 day is what I don't get. Why have an award ceremony that lasts two days (apparently)?

johnfig ygbad_boy Saturday, January 14, 2017

They decided to do 1 day for digital song division n 1 day for album division. I dont know why but i guess it's a good thing in the sense that more artists get to perform and they also get to perform a longer time this way. If u notice, GDA is the only awards show that give around 18 main awards n 2 grand prizes which is a lot n if they do it in 1 day, there would not be enough time to let all the winners to perform i guess.
