What?!?! I can tell you this…neither did Justin Bieber and One Direction. So, is this a lose-win situation? Who won the award? My views here.
Do you know how bad I want to laugh right now? Seriously, this is too funny to me and you want to know why? MAMA 2012 Rookie of the Year award. This is a repeat on what happened between B.A.P and EXO and it’s funny to me. I told you when voting counts for 10 or 20%, the unexpected happens, like where did Chris Lee come from? (Chris Lee won Worldwide Act and she’s a C-pop artist.) Who is she and how did she win against EXO’s, Justin Bieber’s, and 1D’s fans? Doesn’t that sound like Busker Busker to you? It does, I mean I wouldn’t reference MAMA 2012 for the heck of it, but this should be familiar to K-pop fans.
I think they have mix feelings about this award. They’re happy that Justin Bieber and 1D didn’t win the award, but they’re sad that EXO didn’t win either. You know, the usual feelings after something that didn’t go your way. There’s really nothing more to say about this, but that Exotics and K-poppers are shocked that they didn’t win and that all their hard work went to waste. Well, Exotics been through this before and it should be easy for them to pick themselves back up.
Again, it’s funny to me. Exotics was pushing down other fandoms’ throats to vote for them, but they did it for the wrong reasons and that’s why it’s funny. People claimed that it’s to spread K-pop, but why leading up to the award ceremony they’re talking bad about 1D and Bieber? Why were they worried about what their fans had to say instead of just voting? Why do we have to vote to “get back” at somebody when it’s about spreading K-pop? Here’s a video explaining in depth about this whole ordeal. *Note: I recorded it yesterday, so it was before the announcement*
They also thought too far in advance for my taste as if EXO already won the award. Just because you are ahead in the polls does not mean that you are going to win and that was proven today. On Twitter and Tumblr they were like “Imagine Kris and Suho on stage accepting the award,” and other stuff along those lines. To me, creating those type of posts gave them false hope and the expectancy that they would win. Since your expectation is high, EXO was in the lead up to the announcement, but they didn’t win, Exotics and K-poppers were highly disappointed. Even more then they should be. It’s not a Korean award program, so it was not granted that they were going win, but since it’s all about getting back at an idol who did nothing to EXO it’s even more disappointing.
Now this is my opinion, so not everybody will agree with me, but I want to know what you guys think. What do you think of this outcome?
