Furthermore, in the spirit of award shows, there is of course bound to be some controversy. This year things have started up early when soon after the names of nominees were released, fans were quick to realise that both TVXQ and Super Junior have been omitted from the list. Both groups fit the award criteria as they both released full length albums this year with higher than average sales.
TVXQs album Tense released in early 2014 has sold over 300,000 copies, topped the Gaon and Oricon album charts, and the lead single Something won seven music award trophies during promotions. Similarly, Super Junior released their 7th studio album Mamacita after a two year hiatus which has sold over 380,000 copies, topped multiple charts and had its title track receive nine trophies during music award promotions. As a result, outraged fans have been trending #JusticeforDBSJ on Twitter.
So readers, are you looking forward to the show? How do you feel about the TVXQ/Super Junior situation?
