With IZ*ONE’s disbandment fast approaching, perhaps fans wish to give them a parting gift before they move on to their separate career paths.

Although the results have come up as such, fans have speculated that the results may be skewed due to the boycott from some fandoms. As TWICE and ITZY will not be present at the Melon Music Awards, their fans have decided to not participate in the votes. ITZY currently ranks 11th while Baek Yerin takes 12th place.

Similarly, international fans have not been allowed to vote for the Melon Music Awards. Do stay tuned for the results eventually!
