Who was the big winner this year?
13 Nov 2017 - 9:23 AM  UPDATED 13 Nov 2017 - 9:23 AM

With a nominee list that included GFRIENDHIGHLIGHTMAMAMOOSEVENTEEN, and WANNA ONE, this year's "Best Korea Act" at the 2017 MTV EMAs was a closely-fought affair. With all the votes now tallied up, we have a winner for this prestigious trophy!

In a new tweet from the official 2017 MTV EMA account, it has been announced that this year's "Best Korea Act" is none other than GFRIEND! 

Not only did the girls manage to beat off some fierce competition, but this is GFRIEND's first win in the category after being nominated for the past two years. Furthermore, this accomplishment is doubly impressive considering that the girls have yet to hold their first solo concert yet.


A huge, huge congrats to GFRIEND for a great start to their awards season!
