The album's "Departing from Seoul Station" was selected as the "Best Folk Song." "CheongPa Sonata," which was released in October last year, was evaluated as a masterpiece of Korean folk music that started with individual stories and embraced the times.
Jeongmilla won 'Album of the Year' and said, "Music is great. I ask you to listen to it a lot and continue to give a lot of applause and encouragement to all the musicians in the land. "I will sing hard tomorrow," she said.

LEENALCHI's "Sugungga" album won the category of "Best Jazz & Crossover - Crossover Album" and the hit song "Tiger is coming" won the category of "Best Modern Rock Songs."
Music director Young-kyu Jang, who leads LEENALCHI, said, "It is important for our team to be recognized for its musical value when it is first created, but we wanted to be a team that can be consumed in the music market and survive for a long time." "We're a little scared because everything is coming so fast than we thought," he said. "There are many bands and traditional musicians around us. We hope their music can also be consumed in a healthy music market."
The group BTS won two trophies, "Song of the Year" and "Best Pop Song," with "Dynamite," which achieved the first Billboard main single chart "Hot 100" in Korean pop music history.
In its acceptance speech in the video, BTS Jungkook said, "I think we have reached many people with sincerity in 'Dynamite,' and stressed, "As we gave you a valuable award, we will all try to show better music in the future."
