4 things to look out for at the 2019 Soribada Awards

It’s that time of the year again for the Soribada Best K-Music Awards – also known as the SOBA Awards (Soribada – get it?), where the best in K-Pop is celebrated.

The third edition of the ceremony will be split into two days in order to feature even more artistes. Among those confirmed to attend the awards are TWICE, MAMAMOO, Ha Sung Woon, LOONA, ITZY, ATEEZ, NCT 127, Red Velvet, Park Ji Hoon, Kim Jae Hwan, AB6IX, (G)I-DLE and THE BOYZ.

Toggle will be live streaming both days of the awards, and catch up will also be available on the site until September 20*.

Ahead of the first show tonight, we’ve compiled a list of four things you can look out for.

*Live streaming and catch up will only be available within Singapore.

Who will be going home with grand prize this time?

The first edition of the SOBA Awards in 2017 saw EXO and TWICE go home with the Daesangs (Grand Prizes) of the night, while last year’s saw BTS and TWICE go home victorious.

Will TWICE be able to go home with the award three years running? Will EXO or BTS add another grand trophy to their bag? Will it be a brand new contender altogether? You’ll have to watch to find out.

With BTS on a two-month break, the superstars will not be present at the awards. However, with the amazing year that they’ve had, we’re pretty sure they will win at least one major award. And you know what this means – fans will get to see a video recording of their acceptance speech.

Possible Wanna One member interactions

For the second day of the SOBA Awards, we spy with our little eyes AB6IX, Kim Jae Hwan and Park Ji Hoon in attendance – that makes up four former members of Wanna One who will be at the awards.

Granted, they’ve moved on to a new chapter of their careers, but it’s always nice to see old friends again, and we’re sure Wannable will agree.
