SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Well, the K-pop industry’s year-end awards shows are about to start in full swing. While the first half of the year is all about new beginnings and the mid-year is all about music festivals, the second half of the year gets pretty glamorous with award shows and end-of-year festivals. We have the likes of “Gayo Daejuns” and award shows like MAMA, AAA, GDA and more. Well, the 2022 Fact Music Awards will have the honor of kicking off the year-end calendar as the first K-pop year-end awards show of 2022.
The Fact Music Awards is a fairly new awards show that started in 2019 but had to go live in 2020 due to the pandemic. They had taken advantage of advanced AR technology to improve performance. Last year was pretty star-studded with legendary special stages like Oh My Girl, Stray Kids, Super Junior, Itzy, Astro and The Boyz. BTS won four daesangs (grand prizes) while rising star Lim Young-woong won three. The evening had also been good for Seventeen and ballad singer Hwang Chi-yeul. Well, here’s everything we know about the 2022 Fact Music Awards.
