Dubbed the “fairest of them all” awards because this one focuses more on songs and albums on top of artistes and songs that have received the most attention and love throughout the year, the “2nd Gaon Chart K-Pop Awards” ceremony took place just hours ago at the Seoul Olympic Hall.

Hosted by Brown Eyed Girls’ Gain and Joo Young Hoon, this year’s awards show gave mentions and recognition to more than just the artistes alone. Gaon Chart also made it a point to give out accolades for “Best Producer”, “Composer”, “Lyricist”, even right down to choreography and styling. But before we go on, watch what happened when BIGBANG’s leader G-Dragon stepped up to receive the “Best Producer” award for YG Entertainment’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk:
