The 2017 Korean Music Award winners and the music that earned them the honor

The results for the 2017 Korean Music Awards were announced yesterday, and I’m going to cover the winners.

But why when you didn’t give a fuck about the other award show winners?

Because these awards are more than just a popularity contest, and while subjective formats definitely have issues of their own, the fact that judges vote is the reason this is considered the Korean version of the Grammys.

Perhaps most importantly, I figure it’s a perfect opportunity for people to find other music besides K-pop if they want, especially since I do carry the posts of Korean Indie.
