    Daesang is grand prize, the most prestigious, in Korean music award shows. Herein I make a statistic of daesang winners by taking into account the 5 major award shows namely Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), Melon Music Awards (MMA), Golden Disk Awards (GDA), Korean Music Awards (KMA), Seoul Music Awards (SMA); and the newly-introduced Asia Artist Awards (AAA).

    - MAMA features 3 daesang awards namely Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Artist of the Year (since 2006); and 2 former daesang awards
    namely Music Video of the Year, Best Popular Music Video (1999-2005).
    - MMA features 3 daesang awards namely Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Artist of the Year (since 2009).
    - GDA features 2 daesang awards namely Disk Daesang (since 1986) and Digital Daesang (since 2006).
    - KMA features 3 daesang awards namely Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Musician of the Year (since 2004).
    - SMA features only 1 daesang award (since 1990).
    - AAA features only 1 daesang award for music (since 2016).

    Not even me being shady here, it's the plain and simple truth. The numbers don't lie /laytea

    There's no "let's divide the awards like in elementary school" bull shit acceptable this time around. The only way they can retain their reliability is if the rightful winners win /chanyeollip

    MMA & MAMA were so unprofessional and stupid this year trying to "please" everyone. They're awards, they don't divide just how they want to make everyone happy, they must be reliable, especially when there's so much people ready to slap them with facts like we already did... so GDA & SMA don't have a choice lol
