On the January 17 airing of the music show, A Pink with "%%" and Kim Chung Ha with "Gotta Go" were nominated for 1st place. The girl group with their new dance song was ultimately given the trophy.
A Pink happily accepted the award and out of all, Bomi couldn't stop her tears.
The last time A Pink won on 'M Countdown' was in 2015 with "Remember." Fans assume the trophy was more meaningful as it was A Pink's win in over 3 years.
