UPDATE: In the description for the "shona shona" mv, it seems they have added inspiration credit to both iz*one's "beware" and b1a4's "like a movie"!
Today, we’re going to talk about how Blinks are claiming the Apan awards are rigged because blackpink was seemingly snubbed, Shawn Mendes and...his kpop shenanigans, BTS being nominated for a Grammy Award and IZ*ONE and B1A4 music videos being accused of plagiarism by fans.
The Apan awards are organized by the Korea Entertainment Management Association and they had previously revealed a list of 30 artists who were nominated for their Top 10 artists of the year, who they claim are “the greatest singers who made K-pop shine in 2020” and among the top 30 list, we did indeed have BLACKPINK along with other artists such as Ateez, (G)i-dle, Loona to name a few. And it seems that there’s a few things that goes into picking the final 10 artists, that being album sales, digital sales, and evaluation by a panel of judges and fan voting.
The top 10 ended up being Kang Daniel, The Boyz, Monsta X, BTS, Seventeen, Iz*one, Im Young Woong, Got7, NCT127 and Twice. While Blackpink had only won in best music video category, which was determined solely by fan voting.
But when this list of the top 10 artists was revealed, it seems blinks were quite surprised to see that Blackpink were nowhere to be seen and started trending #/ApanRobbedBlackpink as well as #/Apan_Awards_Rigged. And of course, we also saw fans showing blackpink’s accomplishments in album sales and digital sales and people praising their overall impact this year. Saying it doesn’t make sense.
We also have the Asian Artists Awards who are under fire for a comment towards Iz*one’s achievement that people are claiming is discrediting blackpink. So in this short clip going around, we see Iz*one going to receive an award and the translation said: “Iz*one set the record as the girl group with the highest first-week sales”
Now this has upset a lot of people, because if you look at the numbers, blackpink’s the album sold the most albums in its first week. However, it’s important to note that Iz*one album, the Oneiric diary, came out June 15th while Blackpink’s the Album came out October 2nd, so yes, there was a time where Iz*one did indeed hold that very record that the host seems to be alluding too.
So if you scroll through twitter, you’ll see a lot of people demanding that AAA apologize to blackpink, even trending the hashtag #/AAA_apologize_toBLACKPINK, but also a lot of people clarifying that they mean no harm or malice towards iz*one and they don’t deserve any hate in this situation, but given the fact that blackpink have the record and are seemingly being snubbed by these award shows, they want to rectify it.
