Yes. It’s that time of the year again! It’s the season of awards shows and year end festivals! This 2017, BLACKPINK presented us ‘As If It’s Your Last’ which broke numerous records and achieved relative digital success. Also, ‘Playing with Fire’, another still-charting BLACKPINK song released in November of 2016, may still be eligible in some awards show. With these, we believe the girls will at least get nominations and attend some of these events. And so, we prepared this post to provide information you need to know about these shows 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.
