January 19 saw the 26th Seoul Music Awards take place and not only were there a number of stunning performances and beautifully dressed idols, it was a night filled with many worthy winners!
Hosted by Jeon So Mi, Tak Jae Hoon, and Super Junior's Heechul this year, the Seoul Music Awards is an annual ceremony that recognises the outstanding achievements of the Korean music industry.
