Song of the Year (Daesang) | TWICE "What is Love?"

Shows you exactly why nobody really takes MAMA seriously anymore. What is Love wasn't even in the top 10 best songs of the year, let alone being the best.

Should've been between Way Back Home (Shaun) or Love Scenario (iKon).

Actually the top songs of this year were LS, Good Old Days (Jang Deok Cheol) and Bboom Bboom but yeah still Shaun charted much better than What Is Love.

I think we can all agree that 2018 was just one of the worst years for Kpop in general. It's like, these artists are getting their awards because that's all Korea's producing. They keep trying to mimic what America is doing, failing to realize that there's a reason why people opted to listen to Korean music in the first place. The diversity of genre and style in Korea is horrible. It's more less a talent show than an actual celebration of culture and art.

no way, good old days didnt sell as much as Way Back Home and didn't destroy top idol group after top idol group for months.

Love Scenario and Way Back Home are my two favorite songs this year based on how good the songs are, and sales wise we still dont know which one did better. Love Scenario dominated the first half, while Way Back Home was on the charts for very very long and kept beating off super strong competition.

It’s ridiculous that What is love is song of the year. I think there are much better songs like Dudududu, Fake love, Love scenario, Bad boy. I don’t know how the votes count but to me its not right

Twice deserves Best Girl Group and SOTY but Best Female Dance should go to Gfriend or Dreamcatcher, no one else compares to them. BTW where the hell is Gfriend?

it's funny how certain people or should I say certain fandoms were so happy that their favs weren't attending MAMA(yall know who I'm talking about). Yall were saying things like '' anyways thank god XYZ isn't attending MAMA. It isn't relevant anyway'' or '' XYZ don't care about MAMA awards'' yet yall are the first one being pressed. If yall wanted your favs to win then maybe talk to their company and tell them to attend next time? The daesangs are the awards you need to be there to win it is how it is. ANYWAYS my babies Twice and BTS won big and I couldn't be prouder of them because they deserve it for literally being the busiest and hardworking. ARMYONCE won big and I am happy.

I understand (actually not) it was TOO much to ask LS get SOTY since ikon wasnt attending but give it to What is love?? Like are you being serious, i cant even...... Maybe they didnt want to give it to BTS because they got the other 2 daesangs but it would have been a better choice and the right thing to do, what they did is absurd.

honestly? the right thing to do would've been LS. nothing else really would be right at all, regardless of whether they attended. LS broke so many records, charted for so long and was legitimately a national hit (which included that it was very popular among children to the point that it was banned in some schools because students kept singing it all the time hahaha).

TBH I feel like out of everyone, Mamamoo was the one who got the short end of the stick. If we are all going to be honest, MNET robbed Mamamoo out of Best Vocal Group so that they could rob iKON out of SOTY. Had they not given iKON anything, Mnet would have gotten a lot more hate and more people would be protecting iKON and trashing MNET's name.

A lot of the awards, once again, make no or little sense to me (surpriiise (not)).
I originally came here to say one thing; I'd like to mention DAY6 not winning Best Band Performance cuz hell, I think that was unfair..
But I see a lot of people discussing the SOTY. And I honestly agree with the majority: Twice shouldn't have gotten that award. iKON hit it big with LS and come on, Mnet, they definitely should've gotten it – even though they didn't attend the show (that reminds me – did anyone else notice how few of the nominees actually went? Damn). They knew they couldn't not give iKON anything for their achievements, so they gave them Best Vocal Performance instead – an award I think Mamamoo definitely deserved! And now, because a fair amount of people share at least some of these views, I can imagine Twice will get (if not already) a bunch of unpleasant messages (aka. h a t e), though this was not their fault at all. Couldn't Mnet just for once distribute all of the awards fairly? Not as in "everybody gets one, yay"-kind of way, but give it to those who really do deserve it (not saying Twice didn't, they're hardworking and talented, but I think you get the point).

Twice won triple crown at MAMA for Song of the Year! Congrats girls. I would have like that they won Artist of the Year instead considering how many comebacks they had this year that were all popular with

"Candy Pop"

"What Is Love?"

"Wake Me Up"

"Dance the Night Away"

"BDZ"

"Yes or Yes"

"The Best Thing I Ever Did" - not promoted on stages so this is just extra I threw in.


MAMA took into consideration many factors for them winning this one including the fact they gave the other two Daesang to BTS. So in any case, Twice definitely deserves a Daesang this year from MAMA!

Someone said well that Mnet gave Twice Whatever Daesang. They worked their asses whole year non stop working and travelling and being on top just to receive hate from all other artists fans. Thank you Mnet, really. Say what you want but Twice was any less worth to get ArOTY than BTS.

Seriously Mnet did a stupid thing. They made SOTY Something Of The Year. You need to give it to song, not artist. Twice deserve the world for me but that award was unnecessary. Now they get hate from other fandoms instead of enjoying their success

If you were not going to give the SOTY to Love Scenario you at least should've given it to the second best of the year (for idols), Bboom Bboom but no you decided to give it to the 20-something-th song.
