The fairness of “2012 MelOn Music Awards” has been questioned!
The award in question was the “Netizen’s Popularity Award”. According to netizen’s votes, JYJ’s Junsu ranked first with 185, 519 votes for his “Nice Guy” OST “Love is Like Snow”. However, the award instead went to BEAST’s “Midnight” with only 147, 310 votes.
Contrary to other awards which netizen’s votes account for 30% of the final result with 70% coming from music charts, netizen’s contribution doubles (60%) for “Netizen’s Popularity Award”, leading to questioning by fans. An industry representative who requested anonymity speculated that SM Entertainment has a hand on influencing the result.
The question got even worse because the host stated, “The core of this award is fairness, popularity, and professionalism. It will be a fair award because it will be decided by the music chart rank and netizen votes.”
Readers, what do you think?
