Pann: Suspicion of manipulation on MAMA's rookie award voting
1. [+126, -18] "It's because the sunbae fandoms are helping the group"??? iKON is from YG, Bigbang is their sunbae ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+110, -6] The constant 26K gives me goosebumps... It's manipulated for sure.
3. [+108, -7] As expected from the company ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm so pissed off.
4. [+55, -2] I'm an EXO-L but shouldn't iKON or Seventeen win the rookie award? N.Flying is so random ㅋㅋ I'll be really speechless if they actually win the award. Isn't their popularity smaller than these two groups? You can only be nominated for once for a rookie award. If it's not done fairly, it's not good.
5. [+45, -4] I'm a fan of Seventeen and it was like this since the first day. I was voting for Seventeen and N.Flying was 4th but they suddenly jumped up to 3rd. I was confused. I kept eyeing the voting. When Monsta X fans voted and surpassed N.Flying, N.Flying's votes jumped and surpassed Monsta. This cycle kept repeating... It seems like FNC is trying to show that they have a big popularity as a listed company rather than aiming for the award. I heard that AOA also gained 20K votes suddenly... Find strength, Monsta X fans.
6. [+40, -1] I heard that AOA also gained 20K votes at once? As expected of FNC ㅋㅋ
7. [+32, -0] Doesn't FNC have a lot of sajaegi accusations? They're gonna be #1 at this rate ㅋㅋ
8. [+31, -2] Poor Monta X fans. They're voting really hard. Do they think Monsta X is a joke? Didn't they do the same thing to Sistar?
