after over a month … mobile voting for the 31st golden disk awards has come to a close. though it was quite a nail biter shinee has finished in first place not only under the album vote, but the total vote as well. (keep in mind that shawols managed to do this despite that fact that total vote was combined between three different categories …, two that they weren’t even nominated in.) based on the written criteria this means that shinee will be given the inkisang (also known as the (domestic) popularity) award this weekend. they are confirmed for attendance for january 14th, the second day of the two day long ceremony. with this tentative win shinee continues an almost decade long streak of winning the same award: five times as a group, and two other times: once with taemin as a soloist and once with toheart as a subunit. the only years that they have not are years that they did not have a release to be nominated (2011 and 2012, to be exact).
thank you to all the shawols who participated in either voting (whether it be through the free or paid format), donating or spreading word around. also thank you, of course, to both key and onew who helped to hype shawols up on the voting / voted themselves (and the other members who likely voted quietly behind the scenes, based on past comments about awards), and reminding us that, yes, shinee do appreciate and every win that they receive / still care about winning after all these years!

so much in love was such a good song but it was slept on and overlooked for no reason… sebin and taewoong both got solo spotlight dances, sangho actually got some lines, woosung sang one of the highest notes we’ve ever heard him sing, and suhyun and sangil killed it like usual. this song delivered and i will never get over the fact that they didn’t get to perform a shortened version of it on music shows. never !!
The oldest hyung
The one who takes care of the others
The one who always has their back
The selfless, the ever hardworking.
The man who created Eatjin
The man who perfected the flying kiss
The ever clumsy
The ever dorky
The awkward hyung
The one who works hard day and night, to help with music along with the rest of the members. The one who worked Day and night and is proudly able to show to the world that he holds two Daesangs with his group.
The one who wrote the only song that’s been able to make me cry, because every single lyric that he sang beautifully holds as deep of meaning as any other song on the album.
The under appreciated hyung who deserves the entire world.
The ever shining the very beautiful flower.
The one who stays up late at night to listen to songs with us, to share his thoughts and to talk to us.
The one who spends days practicing his singing,
The one who spends countless hours in the practice room.
Sweaty and Exhausted
Just to make us proud.
If no one has said this to you.
I am so proud of you, that even words can’t explain them.
I am proud of you, because you are unique.
You are one of a kind
You are Kim Seokjin
You mean the world to me.
I hope we were able to make you proud this year. And I hope we were able to make you happy.
Even if you can’t read this.
Thank you for always working hard.
Thank you for being you.
Thank you for being the Jin that I’ve come to love so much.
Because you are someone who can never be replaced.
Bangtan is bangtan because of you.
Thank you for being the handsome prince who always takes care of these clumsy dorks.
