Congratulation to BTS winning Daesang and othres awards, Actress Singer YOONA winning Asia Talent, and Actor LEE BYUNG HUN winning Daesang, well deserved. they are Top Artists. No doubt. I am happy to see that BTS won many awards but YOONA and LBH also deserve to win many more awards. They are so talented . Ofc Blackpink should also have attended and win many awards in music category too.


Now,talking about AAA2018 in general definitely AAA's previous years were better, sorry but AAA2018 was not very good had too many weird/funny names for many of the categories and even too many winners for 1 category, ofc also Starple app was not very reliable, Starple appand AAA 2018 were so cheat during the voting 2018 deleted even the legal votes. AAA's reliability dropped this year (2018) a lot /so much that THIS 2018 AAA beat the record for lowest views in their short history, Korea did not like AAA 2018. I hope the next year (2019) can improve, and also pls no more cheat votes by starple app.

Everyone who attended gets at least 1 award in whatever category Aaa can think of. It dilutes the value of winning an award. Wondering why the need to vote for their favs with some fans paying big money to buy votes for this Aaa.

Why are there so many Artist of the Year winners? Not much of an achievement if they reduced it to basically a participation and attendance award.

During AAA2018, I ONLY Glad to knew/see many nice interactions of lovely Yoona sunbaenim with her lovely dongsaengs: Suzy and Sunmi, at #AAA2018. #YoonZyNmi


+ Sunmi said that Yoona unnie took care of her at AAA2018, because Sunmi was not feeling well (I hope that sunmi will get well soon). Thank Yoona sunbaenim who take care of sunmi donsaeng!! please always take care of her dongsaeng!. They are gorgeous, We love them #YooNmi.


+ Yoona sunbaenim and her dongsaeng Suzy had a nice and friendly interacting at #AAA2018, both bowed to each other and even had a little chat. They are 2 angels, We love them #YoonZy .

lol the downvotes, yall can stay pressed :p And idk why everyone acts surprised, it's the same every year for AAA, they give awards to who they want, those who attend. Others also knew beforehand, that's how agency can plan their artist schedule. But that to diminish or downplay any artist who got their awards is just low and excuse of those salty.

Anyway Congratz to all winners, you've all worked hard and deserve an award! :) and my Bangtan, Congrats for another Daesang! 💜

This was a different experience. First the good points : Some great performances especially watching IKON, GOT7, MONSTAX, MAMMAMOO, GIDLE, MOMOLAND. I was wanting to see them perform on one stage since quite some time. So thanks for that. Also this gentleman SEVEN.....he was just superb. Missed Blackpink, Red Velvet and EXO. It would have been great if they had attended and performed. BTS as usual nailed it insipite of few glitches and it was nice to hear V address it too in his acceptance speech for Daesang. It was good to see that they dint lip sync :))

Bad points: IKON dint win SOTY award. They deserved this win. Wish IU performed but then she was present there as an actress so thats understandable. Too many awards most of it I dint get it like Artist of the Year to everyone and Rookie award also had multiple winners.

Biggest mess up with the malfunctioning of mics during BTS performance. We waited over 4 hours for this. However, the lads put up an amazing performance and proved they arent Superstars in fluke. They truly deserve all the attention and the recognition.

I wish Blackpink, Red Velvet and Exo perform in remainder year end award shows. Its nice to see all the artists interact with each other especially the warm friendship between BTS with EXO, WANNAONE, GOT7

I am not shocked that Exo is not on the list, but like SM should give them some more comebacks though. Who agrees? (Not trying to start fanwars just stating an opinion)

It's kinda strange, that before I even read the article I was able to forsee about two thirds of the winners. That's how predictable these awards have become

Not gonna lie some of these awards sound alittle ridiculous anyways Congrats to my men bts, they looked really good. I felt sorry for them cause of the mic problems i'm sure they weren't happy about it but still gave it their all like champs ❤ Wait, why are there so many Artist of the Year Winners that makes no sense to me, there should only be one at least for that category

No Blackpink no Exo no Nct no RV seriously -_-

BP have leave mark on billboard

Exo have sold many albums compared to groups that win in this winners list

Nct rising stars for sure

RV super popular group in Korea right now not just in youth but also in older generation because of concert in North

This shit is fixed as hell

Any way congrats to all the winners they have worked hard all year they deserve it

Are you living under rock Korea have there own Billboard duh and are you really defending them like really and even if its Asia artist awards so are you saying they are not popular in Asia you have got to be kidding me and if your logic is true than why the hell groups like Monsta x and Got7 win they are more popular outside of Korea so moral is this shit is fixed if you attend you will get award if not no matter what you have done in past year it meas nothing. No hate to idols that i mentioned

I think they need to change the name of the award, or add Korea to the name. It's only for Koreans who influenced Asia, not Asians influencing Asia.

from the huge downvoting to all related bts articles , It's obvious that that most ARMY don't check AKP .. I am a multi and seeing the downvote just because you hate a group is absurd ... for the robbing the polularity and the tourism appreciation Awards.. It's an obvious choice and BTS deserves the daesang from all their accomplishment this year .. as a multi I know the accomplishment of each groups and for those who I don't know I search them before talking .. your fave group may had alot of thing this year and in your eyes they deserves the world but there is a lot of other groups out there who may did more amazing things
and all I I hope is IKON getting the SOTY with love senario ..but we should never be biased when It comes to awards
