    umm sorry for being salty… i mean, congrats to big bang and i agree “bae bae” is quiet exceptional, but seriously, “loser”? the pop song list is kinda limited, but “spring girls” or “twenty three” should have been the winner imo.

    congrats to all winners anyway!

      Sunwoo Jung-A was my favorite as well! But I’d say at least it’s better with “Loser” than the JYP’s song, which would’ve been the more likely winner considering it’s Song of the Year nomination.
