Voting for the upcoming 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards opened up a couple of weeks ago, and now we're officially halfway through the voting period!

It's been a drama-filled few weeks, with Mnet recently issuing out a statement announcing that illegal voting had occurred before commencing a clean-up for millions of fraudulent votes. With voting set to continue until November 28, here's the important question - which artists are currently leading the polls?

Depending on the category, fan votes account for 20-30% of the final score for the winners, thus voting plays a significant part in the final MAMAs results.
