Opinions may vary on who the biggest name is in Kpop but for 2013, music site MelOn, owned by LOEN Entertainment, and MBC Plus Media have come up with the top 10 list of artists who have had the greatest success with their fans for the year.
In this first round of voting, in no particular order, the following artists were chosen:
Some of the names on the list should be quite familiar from last years awards seeing that Ailee took home the Newcomer award, Dynamic Duo took home the Rap/Hip Hop award, Busker Busker took home Album of The Year and B2st took home both the Netizen Popularity Award and Artist of the Year. So it’s not to surprising to see their names on the list again.
MelOn decided the winners by combining 20 percent of the 1.74 million online votes of the first round and 8 percent of the online sales numbers.
Once voting is concluded for the second round of online voting the winners individual awards will be decided for 2013, which will then be announced at the awards ceremony being held on November 14.
