This marks his first music show win since dropping his mini album “D” and launching promotions for the title track “I’m Fine” on October 21.
Coming in second was TWICE, followed by SEVENTEEN, Lovelyz, and Monsta X, respectively.
After being announced as the winner, Kim Dong Wan first thanked Shinhwa’s fanclub, his agency, and other fans for the support, adding how he is slightly embarrassed to receive the trophy with such outstanding hoobaes around him.
The first-generation idol went on to share a couple words of encouragement with the younger artists.
“Before coming to the stage, I was told that a hoobae had passed away. I feel very sorry and that stops me from being fully happy [over my win], but I hope that the hoobaes here today, who have chosen to join this endless competition, will stay strong and overcome challenges, and so achieve good results,” he referred to the news of a former “Superstar K” contestant found dead earlier today.
Finally, he apologized to his hoobaes for taking home the trophy today, and thanked his fans once more.
Congratulations to Kim Dong Wan!
