Article: [2016 MMA] Black Pink wins rookie award of the year... "Thank you to YG for believing in us"

1. [+820, -148] Shouldn't the rookie award have gone to IOI this year

2. [+655, -65] Pretty sure it hasn't even been half a year since Black Pink debuted, and while I personally like the group, I don't think they have promoted enough to deserve this award. It puts me off to think that this is probably upsetting to the other rookies who've worked super hard this year. Well, congratulations on the award and please have them participate in more broadcasts next time, Yang Hyun Suk-ssi.

3. [+614, -89] Even if MAMA is Black Pink, I thought Melon would go to IOI... Black Pink doesn't even have any album sales points while IOI set a top 5 record for first week sales... What was the point of viting?

4. [+75, -11] And what exactly did Black Pink do to deserve this award??????????? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+65, -10] I thought it'd be IOI... they promoted so much...

6. [+65, -12] What was the point of voting then???? Why the hell would Black Pink who hasn't even done anything this year get the award!!!!!!!

7. [+55, -9] IOI 90 million total streams, Black Pink 60 million total streams IOI votes 49% Black Pink votes 14% and yet rookie award = Black Pink ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+44, -5] 2014 Winner 2015 iKON 2016 Black Pink ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ so what's MMA's bank account number that YG is depositing into?

9. [+39, -8] Who is this group?

10. [+30, -10] How many times were they even on TV? I never saw them no matter how many channels I've switched around on

1. [+1,568, -52] Finally an article that gets it

2. [+1,458, -45] I really don't get it... even as a non-fan, I thought the rookie award would go to IOI for sure... fans must be so upset right now

3. [+1,422, -41] What was the point of voting and streaming, such a waste

4. [+1,321, -41] The article's right!!!! It's only speaking the truth after all ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+1,275, -38] Finally a proper article about this

6. [+645, -16] This is why people are obsessed with big companies hahaha. They not only have an advantage in every area but just the fact that you're from a big company alone can swap results like it's nothing

7. [+629, -14] Thank you for this article. IOI completely dominates them in digital streaming and downloads ㅠㅠ

8. [+614, -13] I still don't get why they won, not at all.. IOI won in both digital and votes, so what was the standard for their win? Please release the standards immediately

9. [+596, -13] IOI dominated in every stat, especially in fan votes, and yet Black Pink still took the rookie award

10. [+557, -13] Thank you journalist-nim ^^


Article: EXO sweeps the 2016 MMA... 5 crowns including the daesang

Source: Sports Chosun via Naver

1. [+2,814, -170] They invited Bolbbalgan Sachungi and didn't even give them a stage to perform

2. [+1,781, -98] Congratulations everyone~~

3. [+1,525, -171] SO touched ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ don't cry

4. [+1,376, -165] Don't cry guys ㅠㅠㅠ you guys worked hard today

5. [+741, -55] Melon needs to start putting up the vote results and annual stats up on the screen as they give out the award. So many people don't understand why the awards were given the way they were. So many instances where the people who had the better stats didn't get their awards. If we had the numbers up on the screen, we could judge for ourselves objectively.

6. [+549, -47] How are EXO fans so good at ticketing ㅋㅋㅋㅋ they completely took over the dome ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+448, -23] Should've let Bolbbalgan Sachungi have a stage

8. [+414, -34] Putting my fan feelings aside... I really wish ceremonies like this would try harder to be more fair. This isn't some hand out ㅡㅡ

9. [+565, -97] Between EXO, BTS, and Twice, the daesang would obviously go to EXO.

10. [+524, -86] What's the point of EXO being triple million sellers when Melon won't give them an album award or album sales award

11. [+397, -44] Basically an EXO concert

12. [+436, -63] I refuse to use Melon anymore ㅋㅋㅋ

13. [+485, -84] EXO is higher on the Melon album chart for the album award but look at them not give it to EXO

14. [+341, -38] As expected, the daesang is between BTS, Twice, and EXO ㅋㅋㅋ

15. [+413, -75] The ceremony was already an EXO concert anyway... Even if there's no public interest, you do have to admit that EXO has enough popularity to represent our generation

1. [+770, -42] As expected, the daesang was split between the three groups. We all expected BTS, Twice, and EXO to win ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+682, -32] All three teams won like we predicted ㅋㅋㅋ congratulations ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
