[INFO] BLACKPINK on 2018 YEAR-END AWARDS {Nominations, Criteria Breakdown & Tutorials to Vote}

We’re nearing the end of 2018 already and the season of awards shows and year end festivals has begun!

Coming back after a year of hiatus, BLACKPINK presented us their first new mini album ‘SQUARE UP’ with title song ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ and b-side tracks ‘Forever young’, ‘Really’, and ‘See U Later’ which broke numerous records and achieved relative digital + physical album sales success both domestically and internationally. With these, we believe the girls will get nominations and attend some of these events. And so, we prepared this post to provide information you need to know about these ceremonies as well as the categories BLACKPINK is nominated for and its respective criteria breakdown. Tutorials on how to vote for our girls and help them win those trophies are also compiled into this post.
