The 2022 Genie Music Awards have announced their winners!
On November 8, the Genie Music Awards were held at Incheon’s Namdong Gymnasium, marking the first time in three years that the awards ceremony was held with an in-person audience. However, in light of the recent tragedy in Itaewon, both the red carpet and the planned live broadcast of the awards ceremony have been canceled. Instead, the show was taped to be broadcast at a later date.
NCT DREAM won two of this year’s three daesangs (grand prizes), which were based 60 percent on Genie Music’s digital scores and 40 percent on judges’ ratings. The group won both the Top Artist award and the Top Album award (for their second studio album “Glitch Mode”).
Meanwhile, Lim Young Woong took home the Best Music Award (Third Daesang) for his hit song “Our Blues, Our Life,” as well as the Male Solo Artist Award and the Genie Music Popularity Award.
