It was the Korean group "iKON" that won the Japan Record Awards Best Recollection Award in 2016.
A number of doubts came up in this award.
Makoto Sakurai, the leader of Japan First Party, has a question and twittered, it is on fire.
Controversy on the part of whom some fans do not know at all continues one after another.
Why is "iKON" hit so far?
I caught the doubt.
Although it is "Japan Record Award", it is "Korean group"
The vast majority of people who questioned the award of "iKON" muttered why Koreans win "why Korean groups are nominated".
Certainly, the Japan Record Award will be awarded for the award of praise and award for Japanese music.
There, K-POP instead of J-POP was awarded.
Certainly there is some discomfort.
However, fans submitted a newspaper article saying "iKON" Japan tour mobilized 320,000 people as evidence.
Although there are additional performances, there is an objection that there are still 150,000 mobilization limitations when all are full.
Sometimes referred to as an article by the press, it is natural if you think that it is popular.
Indeed, the number of 320,000 is a number that will be live six times in the Tokyo Dome, all filled.
This is made up of "Arashi", "TOKIO", "EXILE", it will be difficult for "Pico Taro" and "RADIOFISH".
Is it a rookie, can you debut and make them one month (then)?
"Bunshun gun" explosion
Last year, the words "sentence spring" and "bunshun gun" were used at the time of the scandal.
There is a testimony that the content that the award of "iKON" is posted on Reco University is stated in the December 1 issue.
I would like you to investigate the evidence on your own.
It is "Bunshun" that has made many articles on "Guessing affair" so far. High credibility.
Addendum: The same contents are also described in the November 14 issue.
Ranking of Oricon
"IKON" released the CD in Japan. The ranking of the week that we released is the first place, the next week it falls below 100th place, the annual ranking album 44th place, the single 96th place and the single are just outside the range.
For this reason it is probably low profile.
This is also why it is thought that 'winning is inappropriate'.
The reason why "iKON" is hit is
Because it is a Korean group
Bunshuna gun explosion
Oricon ranking is low
It is free to support your favorite artists, but I think the Best New Recognition Award is reasonable around "Pico Taro" or "RADIOFISH" or "RADWIMPS".
By the way, "Pico Taro" won the "Special Topic Award", "RADIOFISH" the "Planning Award", "RADWIMPS" the "Special Award" respectively.
