[Video] First Music Show Wins Part 2: Boy Groups
Continuing from First Music Show Wins Part 1: Girl Groups, lets now check out the first wins from boy groups!
While there is a winner every week on these shows, it is still a big deal to win one, especially for newer groups.
Just like last time, we will start from the most recent first win by a group and then go back farther in time. This time, we are heading all the way back to 2004.
The last time a new boy group won on a music program was Teen Top and their song “Going Crazy” on the February 3, 2012 episode of Music Bank. They seemed a bit shocked at first, but then went to make human pyramid to thank their fans.

Infinite had their first win with “Be Mine” on September 1, 2011 on M!Countdown. The song was the title track of the group’s first album “Over The Top.”
A lot of manly tears were shed by most of the members during their acceptance speech and encore.
(Includes performances. Jump to 4:50 in to watch award.)
MBLAQ took home their first win on June 3, 2010 on M!Countdown with their song “Y.”
For the most part, they seem pretty clam throughout it.
BEAST‘s “Shock” gave the group their first win on M!Countdown on March 25, 2010.
While Yoseob begins the acceptance speech for the group, many of the others are overcome with emotion for their first music show victory.
Lucky for us, they aired a lot of their encore stage.
2AM got their first win with “Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die” on Inkigayo on February 7, 2010.
Their win came about 18 months after their debut. After being announced as the winner, members Jo Kwon and Jinwoon become very emotional. Despite crying, Jo Kwon manages to say a few words of thanks.
CNBlue‘s debut track “I’m a Loner” gave the group their first win on Music Bank on January 29, 2010. The group also went on to win on Inkigayo two days later as well.
This win comes 15 days after releasing their debut mini album and makes them the fastest group to win a music program. Girl group miss A is the second fastest with a win 23 days after their debut.
2PM‘s “Again and Again” gave the group their first win on the May 7, 2009 episode of M!Countdown.
SHINee attained their first win on M!Countdown on September 18, 2008 with “Love Like Oxygen.” The song was their title track from their first studio album “The SHINee World.”
Taemin, who is 14(15?) at the time, starts to give the thank you speech with a bright smile while the others put their head down. At 1:23, Minho looks like he is trying hard to hold in his emotions.
Big Bang‘s “Lies” gave them their first win on Music Bank on September 7, 2007. The boys remain calm and collected throughout their thank you speech and encore performance.
Adding together their group and solo wins on M!Countdown, Music Bank and Inkigayo, gives Big Bang a total of 96 wins.
(Includes performance. Jump to 4:50 in to watch award win.)
FT Island took home their first win on M!Countdown on July 19, 2007 with their debut song “Love Sick.”
Their first win clip was not available on YouTube, but you can watch a video of their first encore stage here.
Super Junior took home their first win on Inkigayo on June 25, 2006, with “U.” After being announced the winner, there are lots of tears and hugs shared.

DBSK won for the first time on March 28, 2004 on SBS with their debut single “Hug.”
