The 15th Korean Music Awards were held at the Guro Arts Valley art theatre on February 28. The KMAs recognize the efforts of mainstream and indie/underground artists. What sets the KMAs apart from other Korean awards ceremonies is that the winners are decided by a panel of judges consisting of music critics, radio show producers, academics, and other industry professionals.
