EXO-L's are proven innocent! Illegal votes by Armies?

Last year December 31 2018, Golden Disk Award voting window for the "Most Popular Artist Award" closed with 0.16% between the first place and the second place.


This year January 2 2019, SBS made a statement, that EXO-l's made illegal accounts in order to vote. (The popularity award is only based on VOTES. So what happened was the BTS was leading for the majority of the time, but only a few days left of voting, EXO, who was Second placed by thousand of votes and overcame BTS. Thousand of "new ID's" were revealed to have been suddenly created in just a few hours for EXO votes. Exo-l's were accused of "stealing phone numbers " and voted for EXO in the Golden Disc Awards App.

As a result one of EXO's biggest fan club (fanbase) EXO @exo_lab who has 170,000+ followers was reported to encourage other fans o use this method to vote.


Other fandoms started criticised EXO-L's. Stating "he 'Popularity Award,' which needs to be 100% fair, was processed in an unfair way"

And although EXO did not win the popularity award fans demanded an investigation.


So on January 6 2019, @exo_lab made a statement giving a full explanation on the issue.




Translation



















They apologised for informing about the infinite voting method. And the GDA's voting app company LG U+ Idol Live. They released a statement with clear information on the amount of illegal votes made, but they did not mention the names of the artists who the votes were made, but the referred to the artist in the term of "Group A" and Group B


Along with their statement the app company also added ridiculous assumption on who "Group A" and "Group B" are based on the user names used for illegal voting.

@exo_lab has made a statement that they will take legal action again anyone who makes baseless accusation on them.

The statement which was released by LG U+ "168 illegal votes were placed on group A" matches with @exo_lab statements, which indicates that Group A is EXO. And after excluding the 168 votes (which were illegal) the final results was l 4665157 votes for EXO . Which proves that 99.999% of EXO-l's votes were legal.

This might mean that the 184332 illegal votes (group B) are Made by BTS Armies (A.R.M.Y)


Stay tuned for more , my next article I will be discussing about the allegation made that Army cheated on the Popularity vote!

Also what are you thoughts on this.

This is my first Article and although I'm a fan of Kpop and have my Faves i am most articles written by me are not going to be biased.

More INFO on next Article. Allegedly

December 31, Netease froze froze their app around midnight, and after unfreezing, votes for BTS increased dramatically making over 50,000 votes in 4 minutes.

ok even news in korea talked about this and illegal votes was made by chinese armys 184 332 illegal votes exols only made 168 illegal votes so we remember when some exols posted about how the application stopped working and vote for exo was blocked for minutes and after they discovered that bts gained many votes suddnly .... and they are now accusing Netease cloud music of cheating cause they signed a contract with bighit , to be honest k media are playing dirty game with some big group as exo , the kpop industry is a real shit In vlive voting, it was found out that 5 million illegal votes were made for BTS using illegal manners , which was later removed by vlive. This never made to media, meanwhile korean madia are playing a dirty game

this is what korean news reported about this controversy.

im korean bts and exo fan and i really hate when media do this kind of thing ...the last year they removing a huge number from "the war" sales more than 300k , and now because BTS are on the top they hide everything related to the dirty work done by many k and c armys ...this is pathetic

data say everything

They're the same case. You could have ommitted the number of illegal votes to accuse army in this article and save it for the next. It's biased either way when you accuse without sufficient explanation in the article you've posted.

So this is another fans written news again in Allkpop?

Can Allkpop start regulating these types of so called "News"?

May be you should write to korean news first and have them actually write a news to justify your content.

Or else may be you should just put this as "discussion".

It's so misleading to public when any fans write an article and call this a "news".

I don't mean to deter you from writing articles especially since this is your first one, but it was confusing and didn't really make sense. I had to read this article again about three times to fully understand what point you were trying to make. I recommend that you re-read your articles before you post them or have someone read it for you to make sure that it is easily understandable. Good luck on your next article!

The first 5 paragraphs before the first image are confusing because you didn't clarify who won.


"(The popularity award is only based on VOTES. So what happened was the BTS was leading for the majority of the time, but only a few days left of voting, EXO, who was Second placed by thousand of votes and overcame BTS. Thousand of "new ID's" were revealed to have been suddenly created in just a few hours for EXO votes."


This part was confusing because you made it seem as if Exo had won from cheating but then later on you said--


"And although EXO did not win the popularity award fans demanded an investigation."


You also have some minor grammar/spelling errors.

It's funny that you think lying will actually do The Toxic EXO-L any good. Or maybe you don't even know this is a lie? I've seen Toxic-exols spread that translation around, but it's not accurate.

Exolab's statement was released hours after the U+ statement. AND what they're actually saying is that they cannot accept or believe group A only has 168 illegal votes, they accuse them of having more. And support that accusation with a ss of an exol claiming their phone number was "stolen" and used to vote for "another competitor" namely group A on the 11th, but that exol only signed up for the app on the 31st. They also say they they'll inquirer GDA about their methods of collecting illegal voting data, since they don't believe A doesn't have more. Now why would they make these accusations about A if they were claiming Exo = group A?! They wouldn't for Christ' sake. All toxic-exo-l really needs better translators. If this little lying stunt of yours hit Knetz, you can bet this whole issue will start all over again and it will be Our fandom that we shit on again. Because based on all 3 statements: GDA, U+, and Exolab's, it's very obvious who group B is. It's Exo. Basic math will tell you Exo would have won if group B was BTS, but they didn't. U+ states that the illegal votes didn't affect the real winner, so again, group B cannot be BTS. It can only be Exo.

Korea already knows the truth, including K-exols. These statements came out days ago. I seriously wonder why you can't put 2 + 2 together, and why you have such bad communication with your Korean side. All the love goes to true EXO-L for not getting involed with Toxic-Exo-l.

This all voting and bias in Korean award make their artist (mostly) less interested in Korean Award. There are many quality artist than this 2 group and their album also better than this 2 but most their award now appreciate the popular one. i'M NOT SAYING THEY NOT GOOD. EXO: their vocal quality and BTS: their songs & both group good in their own way. Lets see for the album of the year, they sell more not because the quality but the fans buy it. They should see from different side of the album. Quality songs, cover album, impact to social, as mirror to Korean(because they korean artist) and more. They should be more serious and don't make the korean award show lost their value.

Both of the fandoms took illegal actions. But the thing that matters in not blaming the entire thing on your opposite team so that their idols lose but to accept your faults. I personally won't blame anyone because I'm both EXO-L and ARMY.

Cross-post of what @Waf_Niel said under the "SBS reports that..." article:

"For Army who didn’t know what happened on the 31st December 2018. Yeay! we won the popularity voting for both GDA Korea (for k-army) and GDA Netease (for c-Army and i-army).


During the voting, exoL accused us on cheating by voting 11x per account. But exoL already know that the vip membership for netease account can vote 11x. Meaning, the voting 11x is LEGAL for premium account. Don’t worry Army, Netease Cloud has made statements that c-army and i-army didn’t’ cheat and have voted fairly in GDA Netease voting.


exoL hacked the gda voting system to vote illegally. ExoL violated the Korean Information Security Act including illegally stealing someone’s phone number. The person involved will hold legal responsibility for it. KARMA! According to the thread, ExoLab might be accountable for all these crimes and legal action should be taken. Eventhough BTS won, Army still want JUSTICE. exoL accused us because they wanted to hide their own crime.


c-Army said that they were also tempted to vote using ‘easier’ method but decided not to as this will only stain BTS. ARMY is the face of BTS. C-Army working hard for one month by putting honesty and integrity in the whole voting system. Statement from c-Army “EVERY VOTE IS FROM REAL HUMAN ARMY AND WE ARE CONFIDENT AND PROUD OF IT’. exoL spread rumors to discredit c-army’s effort. Losing vote is temporary but lying and and shading others after losing will just leave a permanent shade on your morality and character!"

#ExolsandArmysgoingtojailparty 🥳🎉


Is it just me or are they the Gryffindor and Slytherin kpop equivalent? Also is it just me or when fandoms need fans to stream, they don’t but when some tea happens, they are the first to take a sip?


Moral of the story: Don’t cheat. Don’t do anything illegal. JUST BE FAIR! GODDAMNIT WHO CARES WHO WINS A POPULARITY AWARD? As long as you love and support your idols! That’s what should matters. Y’all priorities are messed up. What is it to even be a fan anymore? I feel like it’s gotten so much more complicated when really it should just be about loving and support your idol. That’s it.
