1. [+119] It's going to Ive this year.. ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+44] It's not Le Sserafim for one ㅎㅎ Shi Hyuk-ah, let's at least start by kicking Garam out ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+30] Ive for sure ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+13] Ive is going to sweep up the rookie awards

5. [+13] A lot of people don't think Kep1er can win the rookie award at MAMA but I think they can. However, Ive has better stats when it comes to digital and physical album sales so I think they're going to win female group instead. CJ seems to be keeping an eye on Kep1er judging by how they've been consistent with their debut show and comeback shows, and it's always only Kep1er and ENHPYEN who get invited to CJ events.
- No matter how good Ive's stats are, they don't qualify for female group yet
- Their stats are better than most girl groups 2-3 years older than them, they still can't contend? That's a shame..

6. [+9] Ive for sure this year! They're in the lead with digital + physical + hype. I'm sure MAMA will give it to Kep1er though?

7. [+7] Viviz, let's win rookie award again ❤️❤️

8. [+7] NMIXX... please have one more comeback..

9. [+6] NMIXX might have a chance if they comeback with a song that's super public-friendly 🔥

10. [+5] Rookie award belongs to Ive

11. [+5] Ive for sure, and for ceremonies with shared trophies, it'll probably be Ive and Le Sserafim. Ive just has the superior stats all around and Le Sserafim is far ahead of the rest of the groups.

12. [+9] Just my personal opinion but I think both Kep1er and Le Sserafim are deserving of the rookie award (just judging by their stats, not any scandals). They've both got decent numbers with digital ranks, and 'Wadada' has crazy views on Tiktok so I wouldn't be surprised if they won some trophies this year-end... but Ive just slaughters all of them this year. We're only going into the second half of the year but I think it's going to be impossible for any group to put out a song that beats Ive's #1 on Melon.

13. [+5] Ive

14. [+2] I'm pushing for Ive and Kep1er

15. [+1] There's a bigger chance of Le Sserafim winning over NMIXX. NMIXX fans need to stop denying reality and admit that they've flopped ㅠ didn't even make it in the charts..
