People say that this years rookies have been a flop, but no. Have you heard of MAMAMOO? HALO? Legend? LABOUM? Melody Day? WINGS? TROY? JJCC? AKMU? Berry Good? Bob Girls? I promise you, there is some really awesome rookies out there!
If Red Velvet doesn’t win any new artist awards people will take that as “evidence” for their flop debut but if they do win people will hate on them and will say that groups like Mamamoo deserve it more.
