Hellokpop | 2NE1 wins "Artist of the Year" at MTV Daum

During yesterday's MTV Daum Music Festival, YG Entertainment fierce girl group 2NE1 was given the award for 'Artist of the Year'.

This has to be one of the more special achievements for 2NE1, considering how many other K-pop artists and groups had a strong showing in 2010. It seems like yesterday that 2NE1 debuted, but they have come along way from their rookie days. 2NE1 better make room on their trophy shelf, because this is just the beginning of a new year, and there are sure to be more awards coming their way!

At the “2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards” held in November 2010, 2NE1 won the ‘Album of the Year Award’ for 'To Anyone', ‘Female Group Award’, ‘Best Digital Single Award’ and the ‘Musical Award’, for a total of 4 distinctive honors. While at 2010 MMA (Melon Music Awards), 2NE1 won the ‘Album Award’ for 'To Anyone' and the ‘Melon Music Award Top 10.

In the Philippines, their album "To Anyone" achieved #1 position in two of the country's biggest record retail chains - Astroplus/Astrovision and Odyssey. They also had several #1 MVs on MYX Countdowns, the latest was "Go Away" MV, which was #1 for two consecutive weeks.

MTV Daum Music Festival was organized by MTV and Korean’s popular online site Daum and held at the Korea University Gymnasium in Seoul last February 19th. Many of Korea’s top artists including 2NE1, 2AM, 4minute, After School, MBLAQ, FT Island, Supreme Team, f(x), Secret, U-Kiss, ZE:A, and T-ara put on an awesome show for everyone.
