Korea do you even remembered a song called LOVE SCENARIO ๐Ÿ˜ฒ that song make a blast in whole Korea according to news even the people who never knew about ikon knew Love scenario


The song holds the record for the most weeks at number one on the gaon digital chart spending six weeks at the top in early 2018 --- the first artist to achieve this milestone

managed to achieve 204 hourly Perfect All Kills ---- It is the only song by the group and in history to achieve such a feat thus far

song spent 913 hours on the Melon Chart as number one and spent 40 days on Melon number one

became the first song to receive a Gaon platinum certification from the Korea Music Content Industry Associatioate


no hate to anyone everyone working hard but Korean award shows are becoming more & more rubbish they all becoming attendance shows.

anyway congratulation to all idols i hope all of them had a great 2018

How about not everyone has to like LS? I personally dislike LS as I think it is flat and repetitive, killing me is a much better song, everyone has a different opinion on what is "quality' including the judges. Funny thing is what OP listed is all about popularity as well.

Love scenario and ikon are great, the problem is probably YG.

So dont feel bad about ikon not getting the award.

And Twice had great year, they deserve awards.

You so right. I definitely think that Korean award shows could benefit from having more diverse music categories. We all know kpop is a mixture of genres at once. You can have an idol group put out muisc with latin vibes, EDM, and r&b all in the same album This will at least allow more groups the chance to earn different awards, rather than giving the same award to multiple people, which only pisses everyone off anyway. Also you won't have as many people crying foul play if their favorite group isn't nominated or doesn't win. How could you be upset if your group didn't win for best latin kpop song if they didn't even make a song that fits the criteria?

3 YEARS 11 DAESANGS ------- TWICE -------


Congratulations Twice


Jungyeon, please don't be sad again. Your and the girls' hardworks paid off


Haters will never stop. They will keep pretending to care and keep saying:

"Twice deserved it but other groups should get the awards"

(what's that supposed to mean? It means in another words they said you guys didn't deserve it)


They don't know Twice. They don't know your struggle. The hates already there since day 1. We all know it.


Everyone deserved their achievements


Thank you Twice (and BTS too) for sharing a lil bit of your concern <3 Stay Healthy and Successful

YG... thats what u get when u outrage others while still thinking u can control everyone, 0. I hope he learns that he isn't at the top anymore and stop being stubborn and think of himself that he is on top of everyone and everything will go as he likes if he boycott every award show and broadcast stations. only his artist will be affected if he continued this attitude

Public Service Announcement: kizaru_hijin fingers it's bum and sniffs it for fun.

Try not to acknowledge it's existence.


Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a fantastic day and if not I hope it gets better! Now I'm sure you've all seen that idiot kizaru_hijin roaming about, right? Yep, you got it, that's a delulu right there, the absolute worst kind. It's racist, hostile, deranged and probably looks like a blobfish in real life. Very, very ugly.


"How can we stop this rat face delulu, noobs!?" You may be wondering and I'll tell you how, It's simple! All you have to do is just I G N O R E that lying dumb fuck and go about your day ๐Ÿ˜„ Let me handle that warthog.


OR whenever the weirdo who you JUST KNOW has black dirt under their fingernails comments or replies, just copy and paste my blobfish paragraph in response ๐Ÿ˜ It'll be fuming, eager to furiously type up a reply with it's teeth clenched and tears streaming down it's cheeks ๐Ÿ˜‚

and here is south korea hating racist bigblueagain, aka ryenlux, aka stopudelulu, aka wang_sejung, aka bangeryun94, showing his true personality once again, while just being so desperate and hopes that he can make me look bad with some pathetic lies and childish insults and hopes that others will ignore me and the truth about his accounts...

and thats exactly the same thing he did a few years ago with his bigblueagain, when he didnt know what to say, he went to different articles and started mentioning my name just like here in hope to find support for once in his sad life...

i dont really understand why is g-idle always winning awards for rookie of the year over other groups...like loona sold 50k with only ONE ALBUM, and izone sold more than 100k...g-idle was not even close to loona

MiyusRibbons Thursday, December 20, 2018 2

physical sales aren't everything? (G)I-dle had a great digital run on the charts, debut was just out of the top 10 and their first comeback made it into the top 10, they also won 6 music shows in their first 6 months, also one of the better performers live.


IZ-ONE had the best chance against them but they only debuted a month ago, so outside of the massive album sales which is all but expected from any Produce group they have yet to reach their full speed, I imagine they'll chart better with their first comeback and continue picking up music show wins.


Loona is an odd one, 50k sales with 4 albums technically, its a pretty common trick these days to release the same album multiple times, they have a limited and normal edition for each release they do and they did a regular and special edition for their debut album so it really bumps up the sales as a lot of fans want all the versions. However they didn't chart in the top 100 and outside of the impressive album sales didn't actually achieve much with their debut.


IZ-ONE would probably have picked up more ROTYs if they debuted earlier in the year but Loona has not really hit it off with Korea yet. Diminishing (G)I-dle's accomplishments because their album only sold around 20k for an actual single album doesn't really work. Soyeon was picked to work on Station X with Seulgi, SinB and ChungHa, they were part of the League of Legends world championship opening ceremony and feature song which is one of the fastest MVs to hit 100m views, they have a film theme with Relay and their brand ranking is consistently high, around the debut and comeback hit #1. They are pretty deserving of their ROTYs.

Actually digitally IZ*ONE is over g-idle also ... wich isn't weird since parent KAKAO-Melon is a digital sales site.

... and YG has left the physical releases era a couple of years ago so no awards who require hard copy sales (like mama or gaon).

I live in Korea and G idle is definitely way more popular than Loona here. It should have either been G idle or IZ*One but I think with IZ*One the problem is just that they're so new. If they're still eligible for some of these rookie awards next year then I could see them winning every one but I'm not sure how that works.

Uhm, did IZ*ONE eligible for this award? I don't think they've been nominated for the ROTY. They are no problem with IZ*ONE even if they're so new to be nominated. The problem lies to THAT SAID award or IZ*ONE's debut was not in time for the nomination. All these award have their time frame for the artist to be nominated and they simply not eligible to be nominated for ROTY. And both group have a similar chances to win the award and that depend to the judges decision because the vote is not the main criteria. What are the criteria again? And of course album sales should be considered as one of the factor to decide the award winner. All those award doesn't really care if you reach your full potential or not. All these award been given are not entirely based on the song itself but the achievement of the group or artist for the entire year. If they want to give an award based on the song alone or chart position it should be based on the song ranking the entire year and only the professional judges should be considered without having to look for their sales. At the end of the day, most of this award was based on the popularity and the strength of the fandom and the award committee will try to give the award "fairly" not to offend any fandom out there.
