J.Tong – Googoo Gaga

Metal Wreckz- Yes Yes Y’all

For those not familiar with the KMAs, it is one of the few awards that does NOT use sales and popularity as the major award criteria. Nominees and winners are chosen by a distinguished panel of music industry members based on their evaluation of music quality. (This means that even non-mainstream and indie artists are considered by the panel. )

There is also a Netizen Choice category but only those with Korean IDs can vote.

The Korean Music Awards will be held at AX-KOREA on February 29.
