Winners of the Melon Music Awards


Previously wrote about my ideal winners for the Melon Music Awards (MMA) and now that it happened, time to drive into the real deals.

Overall, I felt that this is a awards solely for BTS. They are talented, but the stage really felt like it is dedicated for them. I guess, that’s how non-ahgases feel when they participate in KCON Thailand.

Best New Artist Award

Thankfully the split it into Male and Female categories so our baby group from JYP Entertainment, ITZY, have their share.

As for male, I do hope X1 receive but they are still currently in the controversy. TXT from Big Hit Entertainment (BTS’s junior) won the Male New Artist award.

Hot Trend Award

Hot trend goes to AB6IX who also received an award in my home country on Starhub Night of Stars 2019.

Best Dance Track (Female)

I love Chungha’s Gotta Go and nice to see her receiving the award for dance track.

Best Rap/Hip Hop Track

Hands down for Epik High’s Love Drunk (ft. Crush) one of my favorite comebacks in 2019! And I am so happy they won!

Best R&B/Soul Track

Voted for Crush’s NAPPA. Winner goes to Heize with We Don’t Talk Together.

Best Rock Track

Congratez to N.Flying with their successful song, Rooftop for winning this category!
