Song of the Year | Wanna One's "Beautiful"


I wanna laugh but it's not even funny anymore. Are there awards that MNET has not bought??? Like TF!! iKON's Love Scenario literally RE-WROTE A 10-YR HISTORY but SOTY goes to a project group that was barely on the charts!!!?? GTFO!

Hi but I think you dont know that this result was SOLELY based on voting, if your fave song didnt win then it means they have less vote than the winner


Wannables worked so hard this past month just to give the award for wanna one, its not mnet butvwannables

iKON was the first boy group in 10 years to achieve that kind of record, to stay No. 1 on the top charts (all charts) for 43 days straight. The only other boy group to do this was Big Bang 10 years ago and it was less than 43 days. iKON was the first boy group to surpass that record meaning they 'REWROTE A 10-YR HISTORY'. Hope this helps.

Both songs are average but a group like wanna one that got the respect from korea against a group that fly fast to japan to make easy money, you can see that the choice was easy to make. All those prizes are meaningless after all, blackpink robbed IOI and they put a lame excuse for it.

LoL Beautiful for SOTY ?? How long did this Song even charted ?

Love Scenerao had the longest PAK, broke Melon, broke DLs and they are just winning in a Hiphop category eventhough the Song isn't HipHop at all.

What a joke hahahaha

Ben & Vibe showed me again what I really love in kpop - the true vocalists ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I don't see Heize performance - Did she perform on stage? -> I only was able to see Red Carped (she was there)

PS. Charlie Puth was awesome too.. and his performance with BTS will be also one of my favorite colabs

The only thing i feel apologetic bout being ikonic is we are not a huge fandom. I feel sorry that we can give the boys many many votes to win SOTY or Bonsang when we desperately craving for it. However, lets think positively and we all know that LS is not just a good song but its a social phenomenon and im proud of it. Whats the meaning of awards if we cant enjoy and respect the music itself, at least 1 award prove that their hard work is indeed paid off.

If LS is such a good song or a social phenomenon, then many would have voted for it. Why then the vote count was so pathetically Low? Why depend on Ikonics to vote when others should also voted for it since you deemed it is a social phenomenon? You are simply implying that only Ikonics like LS and not other people.

If Award needed fan votes to be given than base on Charts then should it be FAN AWARDS rather than Genie Music Awards. LOL If Love Scenario depend on FANS only it wouldn't stay #1TOP on the Charts for long & achieved elusive PAK record. Award given by a Chart Music Company should be based on their Chart / Facts & not on popularity voting. Most Love Scenario listeners are not FANS ; they simply requested & listen to the song then. They wouldn't take time & effort to vote for an Award.

Well, common people wont bother to vote bcs only fans will do it and not many international fans are eligible to vote. Some of international fans have no clue how to vote either. This song is popular within korean kids so do you think the kids will know and willingly to vote? No right? What im implying, to winning an awards its not only based on people votes but their track record too. The data was there how LS dominated not only in Korea but other countries too. Im not being salty either but award can be bought and this is not the first time YG artist got robbed so im okay with it.

I don't wanna say this song or that song should have won SOY but remember this is based on ranking on Genie charts and streams and sales on Genie, it doesn't matter how long a song stayed on Melon, LS will win on MMAs. Again I don't the stats for this song but just reminding people this is Genie.

S T U N & Dismay. Im not a Wanna One hater but Music Awards should be based in their Chart not voting. Whats the worth being TOP#1 from their Chart when one of strong basis in giving their Awards means fans needed to vote. Music Awards should be given for obvious facts not for popularity & promoting their own. Some are obvious winners but some where given for unclear basis & greed such as SONG OF THE YEAR ?, Best Choreographer ? & Best Dance Performance ???! (Fake Love was better?! if considering BTS). Anyhow Award or No Award FACTS will still SHOUT-OUT ! ( Where's SONG OF THE YEAR - "Beautiful" in their GENIE CHART ??! )

BTS & Charlie Puth's collab was just awesome. This performance saved the show as there were few questionable awards distributed. I so wished Exo, Shinee, Black Pink and Red Velvet were part of this ceremony. Missed IKON. It would have been wonderful to watch them perform to their smash hit "Love Scenario". I sorely missed interactions between Taemin, Kai & Jimin. Chanyeol & Suga's hug. I can imagine Taehyung cheering for Suho. The thought itself makes me smile. Oh I so wished these artists did attend. I hope they attend the remainder award ceremonies. Imagine Black Pink performing to Du Du Du....the crowd would go berserk.

And finally BTS....lads great going. You deserve all the attention and accolades. Soar greater heights in 2019. All the Best

SOTY - Wanna One "Beautiful"

Oh wow. Can I laugh now? 😂🤣😂

No wait. That's not even funny anymore. I see MGA is becoming second MNET? So disrespectful towards LS that should be a real winner.


Best Dance Perfomance - BTS "Idol"

🤣🤣🤣 Oh dear! That was a funny one.


Best selling artist - Twice

I guess nothing will suprise me anymore. This show is biased. It just started and I already know almost no one will treat this one seriously.

congrats to wanna one for managing to make good music and get recognition for it during a year filled with unfairness in the industry (poor songs becoming #1 due to braindead fans buying in droves when they know the music sucks)

thanks for giving me good music to listen to in a year filled with constant realeases of BTS's TRASH

and congrats to stray kids, who have been phenomenal right out of the gate. every talent there is, theyve got it

For those Ikonics, better put effort in voting for your fav in MAMA 2018 rather than being salty in other groups’ achievements. Ikon is still no.1 in best vocal performance group. Mamamoo is catching up.

This is GENIE lol. It's a digital platform. The digital makes 50% of the award. Twice is the best selling group digitally this year with BTS coming at the 2nd spot. BTS already won 2 daesangs lol. Let's be happy for that.

Your bias can't even BEAT ( keep claiming) " Children Song" . Often a child is pure un-bias. iKON - Love Scenario the only few that catches their hearts. If Award needed fan votes to be given than base on Charts then should it be FAN Awards rather than Genie Music Awards. LOL
