1. [+5,290, -580] Everyone predicted digital for Twice and physical for EXO, congratulations to both
2. [+4,822, -627] EXO congratulations on your fourth daesang in a row ❤ let's love EXO
3. [+4,334, -573] ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ EXO you worked hard for this ㅠㅠㅠㅠ you are always the best. Let's love!
4. [+3,980, -532] Congratulations EXO, love you ♡♡
5. [+1,337, -202] Winning consecutive daesangs, for four years in a row at that, is no easy feat. Can't believe some people are calling the daesang meaningless now when their faves can't even win it at all.
1. [+125, -19] Amazing ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Congratulations on being the first ever group to win the daesang for four consecutive years
2. [+121, -18] When EXO got up to win their trophy in uniforms... they looked really handsome
3. [+113, -21] Of course they deserve it, they had the best stats out of everyone all year
4. [+20, -4] You couldn't get away with not giving them daesang when they sold over 2 million copies this year alone...
5. [+17, -4] Who would deserve it more than EXO? If anyone other than EXO had won it, that would for sure be a sign of the ceremony being rigged.
1. [+333, -130] So sad how some are being jealous haters. EXO truly deserves to win daesang.
2. [+324, -127] They deserve it, they had the top achievements ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+279, -114] Apparently EXO's the first group to win daesang for four consecutive years. Doesn't matter how much you keyboard warriors hate because it doesn't change the fact that they've won daesang all four years.
4. [+95, -67] The only song the general public knows from them is 'Growl'. The only reason they were able to sell a million copies is because they kept releasing repackaged versions of the same album and forced fans to buy several different versions of the same album. Senior groups in the past sold a million and double million copies with just one version of their albums so of course there's a huge difference in how much the public knows about these groups and how they're reacting to them winning daesang.
5. [+64, -46] The only song I know by them is 'Growl' ㅋ
6. [+45, -43] Isn't it embarrassing to call any physical album award a 'daesang'? ㅋ With physical albums, it doesn't matter how hard your songs suck because fans will buy it out of loyalty, there's no point to this. Should just change the physical album daesang to the physical album award.
7. [+41, -36] The daesang would've had to have gone to EXO anyway
8. [+41, -38] They sold the most albums, they deserve it fair and square ㅋㅋ who sold more than them this year?
9. [+38, -13] And yet their only hit song is 'Growl'..
10. [+35, -31] People are whining about how EXO lacks popularity with the general public but if you don't give the award to EXO, there's really no one else that deserves it either ㅋㅋ

1. [+287, -60] Once they go back to their respective agencies and groups, it's sad to think that they won't ever win #1 again, let alone get back on the charts
2. [+137, -15] Just support them. It's not like they have a choice in any of this. They're not fools, they've been working in the industry for 2-3, sometimes over 5-6 years already. They know how hard it is to achieve what they already have and that it won't be guaranteed that they'll reach this level again when they go back to their own groups. They themselves know better than us that their groups like DIA, Cosmic Girls, and Gugudan have it exponentially harder, and yet their opinions don't matter because it's all up to the big guys in the end. They're probably devastated too that IOI is being broken up and now they have to start all over.
3. [+65, -7] Find strength guys. Even if you disband, I'll support each and every one of them.
4. [+21, -10] You girls worked hard
5. [+15, -3] They really were the end all of girl groups for me, so sad to see them go
6. [+14, -1] I like this group because every member has such a different fanbase
7. [+9, -1] Congratulations to our IOI!!!! You girls worked hard ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

1. [+453, -81] No matter how many kids who call themselves good dancers try to live up to par, they can never give off the feel that Rain can
2. [+445, -67] You could kinda tell that his body moves more heavily now ㅋㅋ but it was still good to see him back. Male idols these days are too thin by comparison ㅋㅋ Rain looked good~~!!
3. [+365, -66] He actually looks like he's gotten taller. The white suit looked good on him.
4. [+37, -18] He looks better with age~ totally masculine ㅋㅋㅋ
5. [+34, -4] I think his 'Rainism' days were his best. I've never seen a solo male artist as cool as him then.
6. [+33, -8] Park Jin Young really trained him well in dancing.. Rain looks good dancing even with age.
7. [+32, -21] He's a celebrity who shows how important a tall height is in a man
8. [+31, -18] He fills up that entire stage all on his own... visuals daebak! So good to see 'Rainism' again ㅠㅠㅠ
