BLACKPINK won two awards at the 10th Melon Music Awards but it didn’t happen without a slight technical mishap.
As they received the award for Melon Top 10, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo was about to give their acceptance speech when she was cut off.
The announcement for the next winner played right as Jisoo was about to speak, interrupting BLACKPINK’s chance to deliver their speech. Jisoo was seen surprised while the members casually laughing off the incident.

Fans present in the audience can be heard chanting “It’s okay” and the members were able to say their thanks as planned.
The mishap was not taken lightly by their fans, however, as they expressed their anger online and called out MMA 2018 for the incident. BLACKPINK even landed on Twitter’s trending topics because of this.
if you are wondering what happened before BLACKPINK said anything, MMA screwed up the audio and started playing the ment that was meant for the next artist 😑

Leave it up to Melon to fuck up Blackpink’s speech and embarrass them in front of thousands

blackpink didn't walk the red carpet, didn't get a proper performance even though other groups from the same company got a high budget one, their outfits opened on stage and they got interrupted during their speech, honestly i'd rather they stayed home
