Maybe The Fact Music Awards 2019 is the last award ceremony where fans can still see the interactions of the top 3rd generation groups, because from now on it will be the “playground” of the 4th generation idols.
Every year-end, Kpop fans look forward to award ceremonies and music festivals. This is thought to be a chance for Kpop groups and idols to interact with each other. Because of the impact of Covid-19, the 2020 award programs were held entirely online.
During the 2021 awards season, fans were also dissatisfied with the lineup of awards shows. Only a few A-list idols and groups have confirmed their participation in AAA, MMA, and MAMA.
Recently, netizens on Pann Nate discussed a topic with the title “The Fact 2019 was the last time we could see such moments of Gen 3 groups at an awards ceremony.” Fans also look back at the line-up that attended The Fact Music Awards 2019 at Namdong Gymnasium (Incheon, South Korea) on April 24, 2019, including BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, GFRIEND, MAMAMOO, NU’EST, MONSTA X, iKON, NCT, MOMOLAND… At the end of The Fact Music Awards 2019, the aforementioned groups gathered at the stage to take a commemorative photo together.
It’s been a long time since such big groups have been fully represented at a K-pop awards ceremony. The 3rd generation groups, with the exception of BTS, are no longer at the pinnacle of their careers and are gradually giving up the opportunity to develop for the 4th generation. Therefore, many famous groups will not participate in year-end awards ceremonies.
Fans believe that it will be difficult to see such moments again, and The Fact Awards in 2019 could very well be the last event fans could see A-list groups like BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet… take pictures together. The photo of groups taken together at The Fact Music Awards 2019 also made fans regret because GFRIEND – one of the famous Gen 3 girl groups – had disbanded.
- This line-up makes my heart flutter. It’s sad that GFRIEND has disbanded.
- It’s been a long time since we’ve seen so many Gen 3 groups.
- We won’t be able to see such images again in 2021. So sad.
