Why were people mad when BTS won SOTY in 2019 and 2020?

  • 2019 especially. There was 0 competition.


    2020 was more of a mixed bag of actual hits, it could have gone multiple ways.

  • Because :

    1. It was BTS.

    2. The first and only artist to sweep the daesangs. They couldn't make any case for other daesangs. There wasn't one for SOTY as well but still kpop fans somehow do it.

    The sweep is a good point.

  • Because some people don't like Boy With Luv that much and a lot more people don't like Dynamite.


    I do definitely think they got the wins for Dynamite because they're BTS (which isn't a knock... it happens all over the world with successful artists. they get votes for being who they are). It's very successful, but as a song it's probably their weakest single.

    A song not matching your personal expectations has no bearing on whether or not it was successful in given time period, which is what SOTY is.


    And the 2nd point contributes nothing to answer my question, that's just your opinion.

  • People on twt thought another song should have won in 2019 because the fancam had a lot of views.

    I remember the fancams, but being mad because of that? Come on now.

  • I loved it and it did well on the charts but I think that it didn't come close to BWL

    I also love the song, but it was nowhere close to BWL on charts.


    They mad because their faves lost


    :teeheek::teeheek:


    And start coming up with all those "quality arguments" nonsense to justify their hatred

    Take this "Best answer" and run :peperun:

  • Only one reason - beacuse theyre BTS.


    Its the same as Spring Day winning MMA SOTY in 2017, which was predictable and justified based on the criteria, yet it still got dragged by kpop stans. Kpop stans think their friends liking a song or it being hyped on twt or AKP equals "impact", which means it should get awards. Theyre wrong as always.


    Dont worry. It will end up like Spring Day vs the idol songs kpop stans thought should win in 2017. Spring Day, BWL and Dynamite will be the ones being remembered.



    I'm not even going to comment on the people with tragic taste bringing up "quality" arguments.

  • BTS getting all daesangs basically proved just how dominant they are and many weren't ready accept it as no other artist has had this kind of dominance. As some others have said, SOTY is the only one that's probably the least set in stone daesang, compared to lets say album (especially at non-digital award shows), where BTSs 1st day sales of their album are likely locking that album daesang for the year.


    You'd have some artists with strong digitals but not top physicals or strong physicals but not top digitals, than you have BTS who came in and had the top digital song, the top digital album, the top selling album physically and thus are the overall top artist.

  • Because
