Newcomer (Male) – BEAST
***I should have chosen MBLAQ cause Thunder is there but I would be unfair to BEAST if I choose MBLAQ because of Dara’s brother. But would it be a good enough to choose them for that reason alone? My heart says it’s not… So I choose BEAST because I Love their songs especially “Mystery” and “Bad GirL”… I love Yang YoSeob and Lee Ki Kwang…I’ll update my BEAST bLog entry Later for BEAST member infos.
Newcomer (Female) – 2NE1
***2NE1 One One, their spot is Number 1. I Love Them! Need I say more? Hehehe… From their Mini-aLbum, my favorite song is “In The Club”, now don’t ask why… I just Love it… hehehe…
Male singer –GDragon
***GD may be a new soloist but he is really good… I Love his aLbum Heartbreaker, my favorite song is “Breathe”.
Female singer –Son DamBi
***Am not really familiar with the other singers but I Like Son Dambi so I voted for her.
Male Group –Big Bang
***Too bad for SS501, they were matched up with Bigbang, If they haven’t, I would like them to be my choice… I just love their song “Love Like This”..oh well…
Female Group – So Nyeo Shi Dae (GirLs Generation)
***GG or SNSD is really fitting for a girl group (they’re so girly) unless 2NE1 is matched up with them, then, of course I’ll be choosing 2NE1 as the Best Female Group.
Dance music award – 2NE1 (I Don’t Care)
***I Don’t Care eh eh eh…
House& Electronic music award –GDragon (Heartbreaker)
***Heartbreaker really fascinates every fans be it Asian or Foreigners, they just Love it.
O.S.T Award –SS501 (Because I’m Stupid – Boys Over Flowers)
***I would have chosen T-Max if they’ve chosen the song “Fight the Bad Feeling” than “Paradize” for Boys Over Flowers OST… I just Love that song very much.
Best MV – 2NE1 (Fire)
***Written, Produced and Directed(not sure) by Teddy Park… Teddy-oppa should really deserves the award below… Geez… or Best Composer Award.
MV Director – Seo HyunSeung, Jang JaeHyuk, Jo SooHyun, Joo HeeSeon, Hong WonKi
(Now, Where the hell is Park Teddy a.k.a. Park Hong Jun in here?) Teddy –oppa really deserves an award. I’ll give him the award as the Best Man in Music Industry.
As for the rest of other awards, I wouldn’t like to pick one if I’m going to be so biased. I maybe biased on my choice but I’m a YG fan and I Love Bigbang and 2NE1…
It’s my choice so please accept it. Comments are allowed but pLease don’t bash me… ^_^
Now, may I know your choice?
