The 2024 Korean Music Awards nominees were announced on January 26. BTS' Jungkook, NewJeans bagged several nominations across categories.

Meant to be held on February 29, at 8 PM KST, this year's Korean Music Awards ceremony will commemorate the 21st edition of the annual event. The fest is known for honoring not only mainstream music acts, but also underground artists emerging from various genres. As opposed to the usual judging criteria of other Korean awards, the KMAs are not dedicated to sale numbers. Relying on a solid panel of music critics, producers and other industry professionals, the illustrious event picks out its winners.
