As you guys know, the following groups have been nominated for Favorite Artist - Korea:

1.) Big Bang
2.) So Nyuh Shi Dae
3.) Super Junior
4.) Wonder Girls

Some of you might be wondering “Why isn’t DBSK on that list?!” Well, if you were up to date with those overworked boys you’d know that they spent most of last and this year working their butts off in Japan.

With that being said, these nominees were chosen through a survey among music industry officials and journalists, but the fans, who can vote online, can choose the winner.

What exactly was in those surveys you might ask? Could it be how popular they are? How many awards they’ve won? Well, the second question is plausible since each group has won their share of awards.


BIG BANG

These boys debuted in August 2006 and since then they have won multiple awards such as “(Cyworld) Rookie of the Month),” “(Cyworld) Song of the Month” (three times!), No. 1 Song Of The Year, 2007 Best Asian newcomer or breakthrough for French people (what? such an award exists?!), Best Male Group, etc etc. They’ve also released 3 singes which tallied up to 101,296 sales altogether! And let’s not forget: their first album sold a nice 110,408 copies. Despite their group activities, the boys also had activities outside of Big Bang: T.O.P ventured into acting, Seung Ri into musicals, Tae Yang just released his solo album, and Dae Sung will soon have a “trot” debut.


Super Junior

Super Junior originally debuted in November 2005 as twelve members with the name Super Junior 05, but after the addition of member Kyu Hyun in 2006, they dropped “05″ and were said to be a permanent group. The boys awards’ list include Photogenic Award, Best New Group, Mobile Popularity Award, Newface, Most Popular Music Video, Best New Asian Artist, Best Performance, Appreciation awards and many more (there’s a whole freakin’ page dedicated to their awards!) Since 2005, the boys have released multiple singles as a whole group or as sub groups such as Super Junior-K.R.Y., Super Junior-T, Super Junior-M, and their current sub group, Super Junior (H)appy. Singles from Super Junior as a whole and their sub group Super Junior T equaled to a very nice 137,414 copies sold. That tally does not include Super Junior’s Happy current popular single “Cooking? Cooking!” Their two albums, SuperJunior05 and Don’t Don combined to an amazing figure of 259,579 copies sold.


So Nyuh Shi Dae

Girls’ Generation debuted a year after Big Bang in August 2007. Their awards include a few such as Best New Female Group, Anycall Popularity & Newbie Awards, and “(Cyworld) Song of the Month”. The girls have only released one single “Into the new world” (for some reason the title reminds of a “A Whole New World”…) which sold 31,369 copies and their debut album, “Girls’ Generation” sold 111,093 copies. Despite only releasing one single, these girls were promoted heavily and did activities in other areas such as MCing and acting. Another wonder here would be “Why are they nominated? What about the incident at the Dream Concert?” Well, these groups were chosen based on their musical works (albums and such), not concerts.


Wonder Girls

These girls debuted in early 2007, but did not reach popularity until later in the year. The Wonder Girls have received awards such as Best New Female Group, Digital Bonsang, Song of the Year, Female Photogenic Award, Best Special Stage, Best New Singer, and more. Their two singles, “The Wonder Begins” and “So Hot” have sold 27,317 copies, with So Hot still in the charts. Their first album “The Wonder Years” sold at least 66,409 copies. Despite not having high numbers like their competitor, Girls’ Generation, Wonder Girls took the industry by storm with their “Tell Me” dance. Many videos of fans doing the “Tell Me” dance circulated on Youtube and Daum. Even celebrities such as Shin Hye Sung, Hong Kyung-min, and Kim Tae Hee would dance to this song at their own fan meetings! Their new song, “So Hot” has created a new addicting “V Line” dance for fans to follow.
