On February 9, Korean Music Awards revealed the nominations for 2022 and we have some amazing artists there like BTS, IU, AKMU, aespa, TXT, SHINee, Red Velvet’s Wendy BoA and more! The music awards will be held on March 1 at 6 PM KST or 2:30 PM IST. International fans can watch this year’s ceremony through the global YouTube broadcast of the show.

The Korean Music Awards is an annual South Korean music awards show that honours both mainstream and underground musical artists from a variety of genres. Unlike other major South Korean music awards, which largely rely on record sales to determine winners, the Korean Music Awards distributes awards based on the recommendations of a panel of judges consisting of music critics, radio show producers, academics, and other professionals within the industry. One of the most prestigious music awards in the country, the first ceremony was held in 2004.
