The atmosphere at the awards ceremony was heated up with spectacular stages. However, complaints poured out on social media regarding various incidents that turned the event into chaos. Artists’ expressions were also captured in fantaken videos.

Problems occurred as the Standing area was not well-managed so the crowds were concentrated on the side of the artists’ seats. Witnessing the chaotic scene in front of their eyes, artists also tried to ask fans to keep the order and a safe distance. Netizens were impressed to see some idols standing up to guide fans to step back and calm the crowds.
