Korean Music Awards 2014 - Nominees Part 1

It's award season again - and not just here in the United States. It's actually time for MY favorite award ceremony of the year the Korean Music Awards! Why do I like them so much? Well, for one, it's Korean music, but the main reason is because the Korean Music Awards are handed out based on a panel of industry judges NOT based on fan votes or popularity. Plus, a lot of my favorite Korean bands make the list too, and I love seeing them recognized. But anyway, on to the nominees!
