[20′s Choice Awards] LIVE BLOG
Welcome to our Live Blog of the 2012 Mnet 20′s Choice Awards!
We′ll be chatting with you (sort of) and dishing on all the goings on at the hottest summer awards show in Korea! (Okay, so it′s the only one. Doesn′t mean it′s not awesome!)
Check in with us the rest of the night! We′ll be recapping the Blue Carpet, the performances and the rest of the show, and we′ll also be putting up photos on our site!
EE [5:05 KST]: Mighty Mouth is out singing ′la la la′
EE [5:13 KST]: It′s our very own Yi Solji as MC with ZE:A′s Kwang Hee and Hee Chul!
EE [5:18 KST]: They′re explaining just how the voting works - which we broke down for you here
EE [5:19 KST]: It′s a car! Who′s in it.... It′s Taetiseo!
EE [5:20 KST]: It′s all three~ Seohyun Tiffany Taeyeon - the first guests! Taeyeon matches MC Solji...and not her members.
NL [5:20 KST]: It’s TTS!! Oh they’re rocking different looks. Definitely not standard SNSD.
NL [5:23 KST]: Looks like Taeyeon’s in charge of the mini dress and not Tiffany.
EE [5:23 KST]: Seohyun chose a really bright orange look - maybe trying to grow up, since it′s her birthday?
EE [5:24 KST]: Taetiseo choose KWANG HEE over Hee Chul! Surprise
EE [5:24 KST]: It′s BOYS in a car!
EE [5:24 KST]: It′s Super Junior! But only a few... Eunhyuk, Leeteuk, Shindong and Donghae!
NL [5:24 KST]: The boys went very Mr. Simple in all black
NL [5:26 KST]: Oh, they’re off to another event after. Sad! Busy boys.
NL [5:27 KST]: Anyone else notice that Leeteuk is the tallest today?
EE [5:28 KST]: Yea he′s definitely wearing some kkalchangs
NL [5:30 KST]: It’s Jo Jeong Suk in a red convertible! How summer appropriate
EE [5:30 KST]: He actually looks super nervous... maybe he′s not used to being so famous
EE [5:31 KST]: Jo Jeong Seok says he′s a 2NE1 fan!
EE [5:31 KST]: He says he′s going to enjoy it like it′s summer vacation!
NL [5:30 KST]: Wise words from Jo Jeong Suk - enjoy your 20s while you can!
EE [5:33 KST]: Bye by Jeong Seok. Now going through the nominees!
EE [5:34 KST]: Going through old performances - watch them here!!
NL [5:36 KST]: So many hot past performances. But this year will probably be hotter.
NL [5:36 KST]: We hope it doesn′t rain!
EE [5:36 KST]: Seriously. It was so sad last year when it rained last year.
NL [5:37 KST]: No slipping and sliding stars this year please.
EE [5:37 KST]: Although that could be kind of fun. No?
NL [5:37 KST]: Hilarious actually I think.
NL [5:37 KST]: But one rainy year is good enough.
EE [5:38 KST]: Back to our fave MC and the ZE:A boys!
NL [5:39 KST]: Work that neon Kwanghee

NL [5:40 KST]: There′s my Wooyoung!
NL [5:48 KST]: The God of Music cast - Lee Sang Min looks like a boss!
NL [5:52 KST]: Lee Sang Min says to have the confidence to be able to go anywhere for a month in your 20s. I wish I could runaway somewhere. Sigh.
NL [5:54 KST]: f(x) rocking the black and red!
EE [5:54 KST]: Kwanghee is wayyy too excited to see f(x).
NL [5:55 KST]: LOL hope Nichkhun didn′t catch that.

NL [6:06 KST]: Oooh, onto the topic of girl groups LOL
NL [6:06 KST]: Aw, he′s shyyy
EE [6:06 KST]: Haha that′s cute. He doesn′t want to share his crush?? That′s the way you get them interested in you!
NL [6:06 KST]: True, maybe he′s crushing on too many to choose
NL [6:06 KST]: Solji looks like Barbie. Too cute.
NL [6:09 KST]: Kim Ji Woo is walking the carpet now! So much black and white tonight.
