26th Seoul Music Awards! – K-MUSIC

Yet another awards ceremony took place this month, this time in the Jamsil Arena. Founded in 1990, the Seoul Music Awards reward idols for outstanding achievements in the Korean music industry. Mobile votes, digital downloads, judge’s scores and popularity polls combined determine who the winners are of these prestigious awards. We’ll be highlighting some of the big winners from this year!

Sweeping yet another 4th consecutive win of the Daesang award is EXO! We find it so amazing that they’ve consistently been able to win this grand prize. Maybe next year they’ll be able to win for the 5th time?

Album of the Year – BTS’ Wings

It really didn’t come as a surprise to us that BTS won the album of the year award. With such a unique concept, beautiful songs and incredible hard work, we all think they deserve it. We’re really excited for their comeback that is scheduled for next month and we’re sure they’ll blow us away again!

Best OST Award – Gummy for Descendants of the Sun

Descendants of the Sun amassed such a large following, but that wasn’t just for the acting and storyline. The music in all of the scenes of this Korean drama was so beautiful and fitting as well. For us, the winner of this award was a no-brainer!

Hallyu Special Award – ASTRO

Having only debuted just under a year ago, we’re so proud of boygroup ASTRO for winning such a prestigious award. Usually awarded to popular groups who have been active for several years, the boys should feel really happy for winning.

Female Dance Performance Award – TWICE

We can’t deny how fun and cute TWICE’s dances are to their songs, so it’s no wonder they won the best dance performance award! From popular simple moves such as the trendy ‘TT’ to group choreography in Cheer Up, what’s not to like?

These are only our favourite five winners, but of course we are so proud of each group who won an award! Let’s hope to see some new faces at the awards ceremony next year!
