Winners Of 2019 M2 X Genie Music Awards
The 2019 M2 X Genie Music Awards (MGMA) put the spotlight on some of K-pop’s best artists and releases from the past year!
On August 1, the MGMA ceremony was held at Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, and the MC was model and TV personality Han Hye Jin.
The 2019 MGMA was hosted by Mnet’s M2 and Genie Music, and the ceremony aims to differentiate itself from other award shows though its focus on digital content. Nominees were chosen from music released between July 1, 2018 and June 19, 2019, based on Genie Music’s chart data, video view counts, and social media buzz during this time period.
Four Daesang (grand prize) awards were given out during the night!
Paul Kim received the Top Music award, determined fully by Genie Music digital song scores, for his song “Me After You.”
TWICE took home the Best Selling Artist award, also completely based on digital song scores from Genie Music.
BTS won two Daesangs: the M2 The Top Video Award (100 percent based on M2 content scores) and the Top Artist award. The latter’s winner was determined through a combination of 20 percent votes, 20 percent Genie Music digital song scores, 20 percent judge panel, 30 percent social media, and 10 percent Twitter hashtag votes.
