Q: How do I vote?
Voting for the 12th Annual Soompi Awards is closed! Please check back in mid to late February for the results and winners’ speeches!
Q: How come x isn’t nominated for x category?
Music and television programs released between December 1, 2015 and November 30, 2016 were eligible for 2016 nominations. Our music nominations come directly from the artists’ combined Soompi Weekly Music Chart scores, and drama nominations are culled from ratings and performance domestically, internationally, and on Soompi.
Q: How do you calculate the winners of each category?
As with previous years, winners are determined based on the cumulation of web votes, LINE votes, and Soompi Music Chart scores where applicable.
In the music categories, web and LINE votes make up 60% of the final score, with Soompi Chart making up 40%. In the drama categories (with the exception of Best Drama OST, which follows the same rule as the music categories), web and LINE votes make up 100% of the final score.
Q: How come the rankings I see on the voting pages are different?
The rankings being shown on the Spottoon widget on each voting page are based on web votes only. Because of the time and manual effort needed to calculate the cumulative scores (see above for breakdown), the Spottoon widget only provides rankings for web votes since it is real-time.
Q: When will the winners be announced?
Winners have been announced! Check our winner announcement article here for more info.
