“Seoul Music Awards” became a joke in the eyes of Knet and Kpop fans when giving Daesang to a group that did not make it to the top 100 digital music

Meanwhile, despite having very good results in the past year, BTS missed most of the major awards.

On January 23rd, the 31st “Seoul Music Awards” (SMA) was held at Gocheok Sky Dome, Korea, with the host of trio MC Kim Sung Joo, Boom and Seolhyun (AOA). Besides the attractive performances, the most interesting part at this year’s SMA is the awards to honor the artists who left the most outstanding impressions of the year. However, once again, the results of the awards ceremony left the audience disappointed.

Seoul Music Awards 2022

Just like last year, the 31st “Seoul Music Awards” only awarded 1 Daesang, along with 2 separate Best Album and Best Song awards. NCT 127 received the Daesang, while Best Album and Best Song went to NCT DREAM and IU respectively. BTS won 3 awards: World Best Artist, U+ Idol Live Best Artist and Bonsang. Male trot singer Lim Young Woong is the one who brought home the most awards at this year’s SMA with a total of 4 OST Awards, Trot Award, Popularity Award (Korea) and Bonsang.

All awards at the Seoul Music Awards 2022:

  • Daesang: NCT 127
  • Best Digital Award: IU
  • Best Album Award: NCT DREAM
  • World Best Artist: BTS
  • Rookie Of The Year: Lee Mujin, OMEGA X, EPEX
  • Best OST Song: “Love Always Run Away” – Lim Yoong Woong
  • Best Ballad Song: “Like Water” – Wendy (Red Velvet)
  • Best R&B Song: “I’m Not Cool” – HyunA
  • Best Trot Song: “My Starry Love” – Lim Yoong Woong
  • Discovery of the year: Lang Lee
  • Judges Special Award: Jung Dong Ha

  • NCT 127
  • Lim Young Woong
  • BTS
  • IU
  • U+ IDOL Live Best Artist: BTS
  • K-Wave Popularity Award: EXO
  • Popularity Award: Lim Young Woong

Right from the rookie award, SMA has confused the audience by honoring two less popular groups, OMEGA X and EPEX, instead of typical faces with outstanding achievements such as aespa, STAYC or ENHYPEN. Besides, the Bonsang award results also caused a lot of controversies when the groups with the highest number of votes like Stray Kids, TXT or NCT DREAM all failed.

Seoul Music Awards 2022

However, above all, what makes viewers feel the most outrage at this year’s “Seoul Music Awards” is the Daesang result – also the highest award. The two most deserving candidates are BTS and IU, who have won most of the Daesangs at previous major awards ceremonies, both lost to NCT 127 at the 31st SMA even though the SM boygroup didn’t even enter the top 100 digital music chart in 2021.

  • I’m a fan of  Dream but I didn’t even want them to win Best Album, f*ck. Give them a Bongsang instead
  • Bongsang’s results are ridiculous ㅋㅋㅋㅋ If they’re gonna do it like this, why have paid votes?
  • I’ve never listened to Hot Sauce, not even once
  • Just say that you wanted our money if that’s all you wanted…
  • 127 ruined the mood
  • The fact that Dream didn’t make it in the list of Bongsangs is the weirdest thing. Are they gonna tell us how they calculated the results??
  • Shouldn’t they be giving awards to artists with the highest physical and digital sales???
  • The Daesangㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • SM party!!!!!!!!!!!!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • Seriously ridiculous. This is something that the whole world will drag them for. An embarrassment for k-pop
  • What’s with the Best Album and Daesang winners..? I’ve never seen IU not receive any Daesang which is so weird. The Best Album is also hilarious… what were the standards?
  • An illogical award ceremony🤭
  • Wow the Daesang is seriouslyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • Did they pick these at random?
  • What about BTS???? A Bongsang??? They are not giving the Best Album to BTS?
  • What’s up with the Rookie and Daesang Awards…
  • NCT 127 received Daesang? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What song did they release ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
