Fans Question Why EXO’s Lay And Chanyeol Had To Receive Awards At Backstage
Fans are not happy.
On April 9, EXO was awarded ‘The Most Popular Overseas Group’ at the ’16th Top Chinese Music Awards’. Two members, Lay and Chanyeol, were also awarded titles for their individual efforts. Lay took home ‘The Most Popular Film Song of The Year’ and ‘The Most Popular New Artist of The Year’, while Chanyeol received the ‘The Most Popular Overseas Idol’ at the backstage show.
But fans were not happy. They started to express their disappointment towards the organizer for what they perceived as unfair treatment. They questioned why both of the artists had to receive the prizes at the backstage, but not at the show.
Fans also pointed out that the awards were chosen by fan-voting system, just like other awards in the same category. In addition, the organizer also did not release any announcement regarding such arrangement. Their fans hope that the two artists are also able to receive their awards honorably at the show in recognition of their efforts.
