  1. yay for big bang!!!

  2. BB is the best male group ^^ thx 4 sharing the pics dear… i watch it online yet the streaming were stopped in mostly important moments like the shocking moment when TOP kissed Hyori onni T_T haha… the duet was definitely the best part of the show.. others are just too lame… i like uri wonder girls though ^^

  3. […] the winners are: (credits: sookyeong for the […]


    i think all of them have done very well dis yr!!
    i feel happy for them!!


  5. I am hating the fur theme these celebrities have going on here…I just hate when I see people wear fur, it’s disgusts me…even big bang who I love I am disapointed in at. I’m glad they changed when they did the performance though…anyway, loved everyone…they all deserved the awards they got. I’m glad you put upp the winners awards because some sites don’t

  6. DBSK looked EXTREMELY hot!!!!=D
    That’s right… they DID WIN MOST of the awards!
    Still #1!!!!!

  7. I’m glad Davichi won Best Female Newcomer; they have really fantastic voices. The thing is, Hyori is a great dancer, has a fantastic personality &c, but idk if she should have won Best Female Artist :/

  8. @Loco_Roco. Of Course Big Bang worked hard all year! Not only that they had huge tracks that made an impact. But there is a reason why someone is popular. and as to why they have a HUGE fanbase. I guess people give Cassies a bad rap blah blah blah. Cassies are devoted! It’s kinda weird to think a group winning in popularity doesn’t have talent. Every single nominee worked hard and honestly if tvxq and bb wins were switched wouldn’t it suck if someone else downplayed your favorite artist? I unlike most people only watched the shows for the performances, and honestly there should not be an award show to tell you which song/album/artist is the best. I’m a fan of all the nominees BUT FOR ME I THINK SEO TAIJI should have been there! GRR =]

  9. I love how BB’s awards were based on talent or hard work instead of popularity. It shows that they’ll go far =]

    Btw I loooooved that Tabi+Hyori kiss ahahaha ❤

  10. can someone fill me with the last award i missed out for dbsk?

  11. bb won 4 and tvxq won 5 in total

  12. @sookyeong, are you finish updating?
    BB won four awards total.

  13. @viviana, so true, all three groups won something huge. YG, SM, and JYP!
    [Though I have other opinions….I’m happy with the results.]
    Yeppp, can’t wait for GDA. BB has three albums thats nominated!
    The performances were off the chain!

  14. hey when will we know all the results to the each category??
    cuz i was voting like crazy!!

  15. Plus for the real show without these voting/polls or whatever and mainly based on SUBSTANCE isn’t Golden Disk just around the corner?

  16. I think it was fair that the 3 biggest awards be awarded to the 3 biggest bands. Jyp Sm and Yg! =D

    @Sandy Mirotic even though only being around for two months have surpassed all album sales of any other artist in the year. Its doing extremely well beyond the border lines too @anonymous. Big Bang have worked extremely hard ALL YEAR I think a riot would start if Dbsk won something that only required them to be in korea for only 1/6 of the year.
    They all worked extremely hard and none of those three awards are larger than the other. DON’T DOWNPLAY ANY BANDS! =D

    The performances were great. !

  17. Thanks for the detail recap!
    Go Big Bang!

  18. one thing i don’t understand is that why on earth did DBSK win Album of the Year when they only performed in Korea for two months
    someone else deserves that award and for sure not them
    i bet it’s cause of cassi.

    • nope. their 4th album mirotic was sold almost 400.000 copies. they won album of the year because they got the most album sales.

  19. @tiffany80

    that’s nell? didn’t recognise them. esp the frontman, he looked so different

  20. you forgot Nell who was walking with Epik High on the carpet. congrats to both EH n Nell!
