I’m using MAMA SOTY rankings since in the voting everybody (specially international fans) have access to vote. International fans are in fact the ones that show the most this behavior.

We all know voting do not have that much impact on the final winner the main topic isn’t winners but the voting rankings, because these songs were literally hyped up by non fans and didn’t get any kind of support besides their respective fandom during the voting season. Even till this day people (most of them I’m sure didn’t vote for shit) claim they were robbed at some award shows.
Everybody voted and will vote for their faves at the end that is hella evident but it is very hypocritical to be preaching about something and when it’s time to show the actual support that you preach about suddenly you are gone.
