The Melon Music Awards, presented by Kakao and taking place on the night of November 19 KST, honored K-pop artists and their achievements this year based on their performance on Melon, one of Korea’s largest online music store. There were a total of 23 different awards, divided into four broad categories: Main, Popularity, Music Style, and Special Awards.
TWICE took home two awards: Top 10 and one of the biggest awards (Daesang) of the night, the Best Song of the Year award with “Cheer Up.” TWICE won a Daesang despite only having debuted a year ago.
TWICE members were emotional as they thanked their fans – Once – and their family and agency staff. They promised to be artists who deserve this award and to work harder. Congratulations to the wonderful members of TWICE!
