Leading the nominees were boyband H.O.T. and solo artist Jo Sungmo, with three each. By the end of the ceremony, Jo Sungmo received the most awards with two wins, including the "Music Video of the Year" daesang award. The boy-band group H.O.T. received only one award, though they received the daesang award for "Best Popular Music Video".



The award-giving body continued to be named as " Korean Music Festival" (MKMF) for the second time.[1] During this time, four more categories were added including the Best R&B Performance. The Best New Artist and Best Group were given to two recipients each since the awards for male and female recipients were separated. In addition, the Best Group branched out further to give a separate award for the Best Mixed Group. Furthermore, the event also featured Westlife, the first international artist to perform live.[2] The grand awards (or daesang) were still the Best Popular Music Video and Music Video of the Year, without the nominees.

Nomination processEdit

The Nominee Selection Committee had an initial screening to choose for the nominees who released songs or albums from November 1999 to October 2000. The official website was then opened on November 2 for voting. In addition, professional judges have also chosen from the nominees based on its criteria: planning, song quality, artistry, and popularity.[3]
