Winners of 12th Korean Music Awards

Today, February 26th, the winners of the 12th Korean Music Awards were announced. Unfortunately there was no livestream this year, but the awards ceremony will be broadcast on MBC Music at 9pm on Saturday, March 7th.


Without the livestream and no possibility to attend the awards myself, I had to rely on Twitter to follow the even real time. Fortunately the twitter account of Korean webzine weiv had very good coverage of the entire event, including particularly good acceptance speeches, so it was anyway relatively easy to keep track of what was happening. The results below are as reported by weiv.
