Artist of the Year award at an online awards ceremony that was replaced in the
aftermath of Corona 19, and the individual categories of Fan and Star Choice
and Fan & Star Most Valuable Player, respectively.
"It's meaningful that all nine of us can receive it together,"
TWICE said in the video. "Congratulations ONCE."

"FANCY" last year and performed brisk activities. In particular, the
eighth mini album "Feel Special" hit 400,000 copies of the album,
breaking a new record for initial sales of girl group albums. This is the
all-time record for a single album released by TWICE.
TWICE said, "We won a very big award. "I won the Artist of the
Year award at The Fact Music Awards," she said. "It's more meaningful
to have all nine of us receive it together." she added, "We thank
everyone who supports us, and congratulations to ONCE. Please support TWICE a
lot in the future."
"All of this is the result of the 'Danity' people," Kang said,
giving the honor to fans.
Kang Daniel made a successful solo debut last year. The title track
"What Are You Up To" from its debut album "Color on Me"
landed at the top of the chart on major music sites, while its digital single
"TOUCHIN" also topped the music show "The Show."
Kang said, "We've won the award in the individual category of the Fan
and Star Choice and Fan and Star Most Valuable Player of the 2019 The Fact
Music Awards." He was delighted that he wanted to return the honor to
"Danity," who won two awards.
"I want to thank all the staff members of The Fact Music Awards who
worked so hard for the awards," he said. "I feel like I've told you
this every time I've received these awards, but I think it's all the results
that 'Danity' has made me," he shared the joy of winning the award with
"I think I received the award on behalf of you in my capacity as a
representative," Kang said. "Thank you again for this precious
opportunity. We will be Kang Daniel who will repay you with better performances
and music in the future," he added.
Videos of artists' acceptance speeches will be uploaded sequentially on
the official website.

in the aftermath of Corona 19, will replace it with online awards and meet fans
with new looks in the second half. The results of the 2019 award ceremony,
which will be replaced online, will be released on the official website at 10
a.m. on Wednesday.

tally from January to December 2019, and the judges included Park Soon-kyu,
editor-in-chief of The Fact, producer Park Geun-tae, producer Cho Young-soo and
lyricist Kim Eana.
The four categories - Grand Prize, Listener, Choice, Artist of the Year
and Next Leader - were decided by adding 40 percent of the music and album
scores and 60 percent of the judges' scores.
The special award is based on 100 percent of the judges' score, 100
percent of the votes for the Popularity Award and the Fan and Star Choice

individual) from May 2019 to February 2020, and the most votes for the songs
and albums were based on Gaon Chart data.

the Gocheok Sky Dome in Gocheok, Seoul, on Feb. 29, but a temporary
postponement was decided for the prevention of the spread of Corona 19 and the
safety and health of the audience and artists. The organizing committee plans
to hold a new award ceremony in the second half of this year based on the score
tally from January 2020.
