Once again, Tae Yang has been nominated for several music awards. This time its the Korean Music Award and for “Best R&B/Soul Song” and “Best R&B/Soul Album.” Hopefully he will have better luck this time. The awards are based on netizen votes, music critics, producers, etc. etc. The award show will be held on February 26th.
Tae Yang, who released his first solo album last year, was removed from the group Big Bang, and nominated for the Korean Music Awards.
On February 4 at the Seoul Press Center, Korean Music Awards selection committee held the “2009 Korean Music Awards Ceremony Press Conference” and announced a general outline for the upcoming ceremony and a list of nominees by category.
Big Bang was unable to earn nominations in any of the categories, but member Tae Yang received nominations in two categories including the Best R&B/Soul Album (’HOT’) and Best R&B/Soul Song.
The selection committee said that “Tae Yang and Big Bang are musicians who have different kinds of music” and explained that “Tae Yang’s album was rated higher than Big Bang’s album.”
The Korean Music Awards will take place at 7 P.M on February 26 at KonKuk University’s New Millennium Hall. Yoon Do Hyun will host to the ceremony.

The nominations included mainstream and indie/underground artists, so I guess this award is truly based on music not just popularity and album sales.
*Disclaimer: As you know I have no knowledge of the Korean language so all this ^^ is based on my interpretations of Google’s translation of the articles. Here’s the original articles : [one] [two] . It’ll be awesome if someone gets it translated. And thanks to elavip@soompi for the tip. I’m sure we’ll hear more things by tomorrow.
YBaeby, I’m so proud of you.
