Bots are going to have a hard time to vote. This is great. Only legit fans can participate.

Interesting phenomenon in 'The Female Group' category:

Top nominees' positions more or less correspond to the 'Brand Value' Report by the Korea Institute of Corporate Reputation, EXCEPT the one group which supposedly topped 'Brand Value' for Jun 2019:

Current M2xGenie /vs/ Brand Value Ranking

TWICE -- M2 #1 // BV #2 (-1)

Red Velvet -- M2 #2 // BV #4 (-2)

IZ*ONE -- M2 #3 // BV #5 (-2)

Mamamoo -- M2 #4 // BV #8 (-4)

BLACKPINK -- M2 #5 // BV #1 (+4)

M2 x Genie's voting platform requires a phone number verification, so it's harder (though not impossible) for a fan to vote more than once. So it should quite accurately reflect actual popularity.

'Brand Value' Report on the other hand, reportedly factors in online social engagement numbers such as social followers and YouTube views (though their exact data gathering mechanisms have not been made known), which are known to be susceptible to manipulation via click farms.

Let's see what the final voting results reveal for comparison.
