There have been a number of K-pop groups and artists who have made a big impact on the music scene in 2016, but perhaps no other group made more of a splash on the music awards season than EXO.

The group released their third studio album "Ex'Act" (and its repackaged version "Lotto") in 2016, and not only have their title tracks "Monster" and "Lotto" brought EXO a massive amount of success throughout the year, it has netted the boys a whopping 21 awards across all the major music award ceremonies.

But perhaps most impressively, EXO have also managed to sweep the most important trophy at every award show this season, managing to take home 5 Daesangs (Grand Prize)
