The 2019 Soribada Best K-Music Awards (also known as the SOBA Awards) has officially come to a close, and as with every awards show, some artistes went home with a little something extra – and by that, we mean trophies.

The big winners of this year’s edition were TWICE, BTS, MAMAMOO, and Red Velvet. For TWICE, this is their third daesang (grand prize) running, while this is the second year in a row that BTS has gone home victorious.

For MAMAMOO and Red Velvet, their SOBA gongs were the first daesangs that they have picked up in their respective careers.

2019 SOBA is available for catch up on Toggle for free until September 20. Watch Day 1 of the ceremony here, and Day 2 here.
