SBS reports that EXO fans used illegal methods to vote for 'Golden Disc Awards'

According to an SBS report, fans of EXO are under fire for using illegal voting methods. 

The 'Popularity Award' of the '33rd Golden Disc Awards' is solely decided on the number of votes. BTS was in the lead for the majority of the time but with only a few days left for the voting, EXO, who was behind in second place by thousands of votes, suddenly overcame BTS. Thousands of new IDs revealed to have been suddenly created in just a few hours for EXO votes. The fans would use stolen phone numbers and vote for EXO in the 'Golden Disc Awards' app.

As a result, EXO fans are accused of illegally creating IDs with these stolen phone numbers to increase votes. One of EXO's biggest fan club, EXO LAB with more than 170,000 followers, reportedly even encouraged others to use the illegal method to vote. 

A fan of another fandom criticized EXO-Ls, stating, "The 'Popularity Award,' which needs to be 100% fair, was processed in an unfair way."


On December 31, the voting for 'Popularity Award' drew to a close. BTS ultimately took first place with 42.20% of the votes. EXO followed in second with 42.04%.

EXO did not win the 'Popularity Award,' however, fans of other fandoms are demanding an investigation into the matter. One fan stated, "Aside from the voting results, it's clear that the voting process was not fair. In order to revive the trust, they must carry on an investigation and make sure such an incident doesn't happen again."


Meanwhile, the '33rd Golden Disc Awards' is scheduled to take place on January 5-6.

Normally, I'd be whatever. There's always going to that one fan that tries to cheat. But Exo Lab is a HUGE fanbase with over 170k followers. Having a tutorial to game the system should be criticized no matter who you support. Totally irresponsible.

I'm most disappointed in the fact that EXO-L's, who already have a massive fanbase, would stoop so low. I wouldn't be completely surprised if this were to be the actions of a group with a smaller fandom trying to get their group noticed but EXO's is huge, and they certainly don't need to cheat to get the votes. I'm only referring to the ones that cheated by the way. This really is a result of constant unhealthy competition between fandoms always trying to "one up" the other.

When crazy fans treat Popularity Award as if it's an effin Daesang... innocent EXO-Ls who actually voted the correct way are gonna get dragged into this mess again. It's sad but whenever a portion of the fandom does something bad, it's the whole fandom who suffers entirely from the backlash.

The “every fandom has a few bad fans” doesn’t even work here. This is a huge issue. It’s not just a few votes, it’s thousands. Even if they didn’t know it was illegal, they should feel some sort of feeling that it isn’t right. Also how come the EXO-LAB fan club moderators didn’t even do anything about it though? I feel bad for the general fandom though as most of them probably weren’t involved in them and they get accused of something so terrible.

I would usually be saying things like "Okay?" or "Whatever" but this time I am not saying those things.This time I am saying "I am disappointed...". I am not an exo fan but I am a k-pop fan; and this- this is disappointing... Exo-ls should know that EXO would NOT want to win like this. The exo fans that did cheat should just be happy with getting 2nd place. Gosh...

Completely irresponsible to be using stolen phone numbers of innocent people, to create new IDs for something as petty and meaningless as a voted fan award. I've seen a lot of people come forward on Korean forums, after the news broke, saying they've been signed up for this app without their consent and it's now got their private information stored. Honestly how low can you sink? Aren't they a huge fandom? Yet they still wanna go the low route? (Only calling out the ones cheating or defending the cheating btw)

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!

Shame on those who voted illegally and wrongly accused ARMYs, but please let's not act as if the whole EXO fandom is bad because of this or as if there was never any wrong done by ARMYs. There are stupid people in every fandom, so let's not always put the blame to or hate an entire fandom because of something like this.

I just don't want this to escalate into yet another fanwar.

If some ARMYs do anything that's wrong (which we sadly can't avoid from happening), you would surely not want other fandoms to generalize and hate all of us for the mistakes of others as well.

Why? Why would you do that? You think Exo is going to be proud from getting a win like that? Guys, maturity and knowing what's right and wrong is a very big virtue for a fan. I'm not addressing all Exo-ls because I know they are not like that and generalizing a fandom is just so wrong, but the exo-ls who did do that, please be a bit more mature.

And, this is going out to all fandoms, because all fandoms will have fans like these, so please act more of your age or be a mature individual.

I'm not an Exo-L, I'm an ARMY and I reaaally don't want another stupid fanwar.

The reason why all these fanwars will never stop is that people always generalize a whole fandom for the mistakes of some individuals who are not even 1% of the whole.

There are a lot of ARMYs who do wrong things and also Exo-Ls who do wrongs things. I'm just pleading for people not to generalize and insult a whole fandom because of something like this because there will ALWAYS be stupid people in every fandom and this will unfortunately never change and other (innocent) people of the fandom can't control the behavior of toxic fans, so please don't make all of them responsible for the mistakes of some individuals.

That being said, reading this article didn't really change my view of Exo-Ls in a negative way because I know that those people who cheated do not represent the whole fandom.

C-Armys explained the whole situation and I m happy they chose not to take the same route despite being tempted to use illegal methods.

You people on “all Kpop” are so ridiculously fake. I am fed up with people who try to cause problems for their own benefit in order to increase followers and views.

ALL of them are artists that work hard and do their very BEST in order to be successful. They DESERVE it! Who works hard, gets credits in the end. Every single one of us has a dream or a target in life that we want to achieve! So don’t come all the way up here and brining unnecessary and fake topics like that. I wholeheartedly wish for you to get the same things you do for or against others. What goes around, comes back around! Try wishing other people luck and support them instead of writing stuff like that. Rather look at your life, are you happy? To be honest, I don’t think that people who write these kind of things against other people, are happy in their lives.

1. I don't think we should start blaming any one yet because this whole thing is STILL under investigation, so what is on this news is what BELIEVED to had happen. Because the possibility of Exo surpassing BTS is possible considering how big Exo fandom is. Also I hope people understand the word ACCUSED cause it does not necessary mean Exo-l are actually doing it.


2. Just because numerous account was made in one day does not mean exo-l's are cheating... Currently Korean and Chinese(especially china) are entering their school breaks. The possibility for those students to make accounts to vote when they couldn't due to school is very huge.


3.Plus This award can be voted unlimited time. And the idea of one person per account was not specificity made to the citizens so they claming that Exo-L's voting had surpassed BTS just because more accounts was made does not justify Exo-L cheating. Cause I am pretty sure all fandoms have more then one account voting for there idols.

I don't understand why so many downvotes for this comment. What you said does make sense. Korean award shows give out way too many fan voted awards in my opinion. I've never seen such a thing where fans decide the outcome like I do with all these award shows. The majority should come from a panel of musical experts and judges who FAIRLY judge on the basis of a set of criteria and guidelines to follow. Only a small percentage of awards should have any fan input.

In case you did not read the article correct. SBS are claiming that exo Cheated illegally without full prove because no investigation was made. If investigations were made no fans would ask for it like it was stated up in the article. No investigation= no prove= claiming exo-l cheating just because more account was made and that exo surpassed bts just for a couple hours... I don't think that sounds fair.


plus I don't think any news or even sbs would make claimes if exo didn't surpass bts even if more accounts was made.

Creating multiple accounts and voting is common to all fandoms. But here that is not the problem. They were stealing phone numbers to vote, which is illegal. On top of that, this was encouraged and supported by a big fan club. Even if other fandoms were doing it, it was negligible in number and they were not promoting it. But here, the fan club had 170K members and they were openly encouraging them to do it.

Why is this even an issue??? WE ALL VOTE WITH MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS!!! EVERY FANDOM! So if you go after Exol, it's just cause you want to put them down to look your faves look good.

This was done ILLEGALLY as phone numbers were STOLEN in order to set up the fake accounts. Laws were broken and innocent people, the people whose phone numbers were used, were brought into this mess. Honestly, I believe that charges should be made against those responsible. Who cares about a popularity award anyways? Awards that are given based entirely on fan voting should be banned. Only awards based on the artists' achievements count in my book - we all already know which groups are the most popular.

Yeah, just leave it. This excuse of a user is actually one of kizaru's alt accounts. She has another one called KPOPTrashTalker. Basically, she uses these two accounts to say nasty comments about K-Pop, then swoop in and pretend to be a K-pop lover by telling them off just so she could get some upvotes. If I were you, I'd steer clear of them. kizaru once called Jonghyun stupid for committing suicide, then went on a bullying rampage and told many users here to go kill themselves. Trust me, you don't want to be on this lunatic's radar.

thats Ryenlux, a jealous racist who hates south korea and kpop, because he cant handle it that it gets bigger and bigger. and he hates around here since many years. before he had the accounts bigblueagain, bangeryun94 and wang_sejung, now he has stopudelulu and holdthisLnoobs, and most likely KPOPtrashtalker is also his account, to hate around, while he desperately tries to act nice as ryenlux, just to get some likes...

Even if the screenshot is true, EXO-Lab is a fandom base in Hiatus. Also, EXO-L is a big fandom full of honest people. If there are cheats, as in all fandoms, but it is ridiculous to consider that EVERYONE cheated. And yes, the BTS fandom is huge, but it is also full of cheaters and people who use bots to win votes and views. And believe me, the more people, the more cheats.

DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH .. now they want to be fair and investigate .. then let me remind you of all the shit we've been through with the MAMA , soribada ,AAA and Gaon music awards .. when not so long before ' this year ' soribada robbed the exols and wasted their time and money for an award they were never gonna give it to them from the start but decided to wait until the last couple of hours to change the whole criterias like wtf?? that never happened before and don't make me start with MAMA they've been doing the same thing over and over again since 2016 when they first did it because "they can't give us the album of the year award even though it was ours because we already won so many awards " and now they do things like that without even explaining anymore and the Goan music award when we suddenly lost God knows how many thousands of votes out of no where .. we woke up and out of the blue we were in the second place and lost thousands of votes and every time we would ask for them to be fair and investigate about it no one would listen to us ....

Anyway we have always followed the same strategy " the element of surprise " we would wait until the last couple of hours to use all the votes and IDs we have..

This is the problem right here. Instead of being mad at the people who committed a crime and cheated, you're mad at another fandom. This whole rant comment is about terrible armys are to exo-ls. It's only "some" exo-ls who cheated but it's not "some" armys who "use anything they can do to shit on exols". TBH, most the comments aren't even shitting on Exo-l fandom. They're saying it's bad if it's true. Imagine if this was the reverse. BTS' biggest fan accounts gives a tutorial on hacking phone numbers just to vote. it would be all over the news and the whole fandom would get shit on by other fandoms.

this isn't about exols vs army. exo-lab is one of the biggest accounts and they were telling followers to steal phone numbers. if this was a bts account, of course people would be upset at that too. deflecting is not an argument that they did nothing wrong.

Yes, because army's are not doing the same thing. On twitter is so many tutorials for most fandoms, but of course it's just Exo-L. Again. I'll believe it after I read it from them directly. You really love starting these fanwars, aren't you?

I would really love to read something positive about them, but you guys here really write just the negative things.

The truth is c-army and i-army didn’t’ cheat and have voted fairly in GDA Netease voting. Netease cloud has made that statement. C-army statement “every vote is from real human army and we are confident and proud of it’. We are not scared, we voted fairly. Don't accuse us doing the same thing as exoL did. ExoL violated the Korean Information Security Act including illegally stealing someone’s phone number. Tutorials to vote are of course exist in every fandom and not wrong. But tutorial to steals someone's phone number? It is a crime.The evidences are everywhere, floating on twitter. Don't go there, it will hurt you.

You know what, it doesn't really hurt me. Because it doesn't effect me in any way. I wasn't defending them. I never said they didn't do it. I just don't have faith in any big fandom. But it will affect a lot innocent fans out there. It always astonish me how everyone takes screenshot of something but won't do anything about it. Just waits until he can use it in some way. They should have reported it the minute they saw it.
