The 2014 Korean Music Awards are coming up and EXO has been nominated for 3 awards!
What’s even more amazing is that EXO is the only idol group to be nominated for awards in 3 different categories!
They’re nominated for the “New Singer of the Year” award, and their hit-song Growl has been nominated for the “Song of the Year” award as well as the “Best Dance & Electric Song” award.
We can definitely see EXO winning the “New Singer of the Year” award, considering their explosive popularity in 2013, but the “Best Dance & Electric Song” and “Song of the Year” awards might be difficult to achieve.
The nominees for the Korean Music Awards include those who released albums between December 2012 to December 2013… meaning they’ll be competing against really tough acts like Psy, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, and G-Dragon for the “Song of the Year” award, and acts like Taeyang for the “Best Dance & Electric Song” award.
Another reason why they might have trouble winning the “Song of the Year” & “Best Dance & Electric Song” awards is because the Korean Music Awards doesn’t calculate albums sales when deciding who wins… meaning that even though EXO sold over a million copies of XOXO, that has no effect on their position.
This award ceremony will definitely be exciting to watch and it’ll be stressful and suspenseful to see who will claim awards this year. We wish EXO the best of luck!
The 11th Korean Music Awards will air on February 28th, and will take place at Yes24’s Move Hall.
