Is there really anything else we should be talking about this weekend? Probably not, end of year music award shows are always hot topic, and the MelOn Music Awards are no exception.



BTS performed I Need You, the track that won them Best Male Dance Artists.


EXID performed Up & Down and Ah Yeah and snagged themselves the MBC Music Star Award.

iKON & G-Friend

iKON won the male Best New Artist AwardG-Friend taking the female equivalent. The groups performed My Type and Rhythm Ta, and Glass Bead and Me Gustas Tu respectively.


BIGBANG took home four awards, including Artist of the Year, and Song of the Year for Bang Bang Bang. The group performed five tracks – many netizens deemed it unfair compared to the performances of other, and like a ‘mini BIGBANG concert‘ – and despite having released EIGHT songs this year they still managed to revive Fantastic Baby for their stage.

You can watch the entire awards show in replay on the 1theK Youtube channel, or just check out your bias’ performances, of course.

Did you agree or disagree with the MelOn Music Awards winners? Which was your favourite performance?
