Red Velvet Facebook / MOMOLAND Facebook

On November 14th, the result for top 10 artists for the upcoming Melon Music Awards 2018 is announced!

They are none other than Apink, BLACKPINK, EXO, iKON, TWICE, Wanna One, BTS, MAMAMOO, Bolbbalgan4 and BTOB. Fans were happy to see that their idols have made it to the top 10 and were proud of their achievements too.

However, one thing that got many netizens confused is the fact that Red Velvet and MOMOLAND are not part of the top 10.

For those who may not be sure for the criteria of Melon Music Top 10, they take into accounts 80% of digital sale and 20% voting by fans.

Looking at the chart, Red Velvet and MOMOLAND have rather high digital sales. In addition to that, netizens also question BTOB and Apink's position in the top 10 because of lower digital sales.

For the voting results of top 10 by fans, it was noted that the result is as follow. With 1st being BTS, EXO, Wanna One, BTOB, WINNER, SEVENTEEN, Yong JoonHyung, MAMAMOO, Red Velvet and iKON.

Since Red Velvet is the 9th place for voting, some also felt that they should have been included in the top 10. Others are also asking Melon Music to show the actual results and calculations for the top 10.

i agree with the chart why red velvet are not part on the top 10. I think their last three songs are not that much impressive. notably sappy, zimzalabim and umpah umpah. i felt these three song very boring. but Black pink and twice were full of excited. i think RV got low scores from public.

You realize you your comment is a year late, right? This is about ladt year, i.e. bad boy not zimzalabim. Either way, it's better than the stuff trashpink releases

The reason is very simple: SM and MLD don't bend their butts to Mnet as JYP, BigHit and others does.

Momoland music has grown to be annoying in 2018 and red velvets “power up” is their worst song I couldn’t stand it and I’ve been a reveluv for a long time.

I love both RV and BTOB Nd I understand why the quesrion RV not being included in top 10 but why woyld yoh question BtoB as you know btob's album is really good and hih quality so do you mean that popularity over quality should bs considered more? Shouldn't their talent be acknowledged too?

I feel so bad for RV. It is actually a joke that they were not part of the top 10. I hope they receive lots of love and support for their next comeback because they are crazy talented and honestly release some of the best songs in kpop. I think i have realised that it in kpop and pop in general it is about quantity and not quality ( just listen to rv's albums) . I am just really disappointed in mma but i know that this news won't get as much attention because they don't have the same amount… Read more »
