KBS’s List of Gayo Daesang Wins From 1973-2021 Generates Misunderstanding

KBS’s List of Gayo Daesang Wins: The industry is in disarray due to a recently published list by KBS that names the winners of the “KBS Gayo Daesang” for each year from 1973 to 2021.

The television network is currently scouting for potential honorees for its ’50 Figures’ list. Winners of KBS’s annual “Gayo Daesang” competition throughout the station’s history have been made public as part of the search.

Accordingly, KBS stopped giving any form of prizes to musicians or songs after 2013. However, the following musicians were recently included as apparent “winners” of the “KBS Gayo Daesang” in years when KBS did not give out awards, according to a list published by the broadcasting station:

If no awards were given out during those years, how did these artists “win” them anyway? Since no fan vote was involved, what were the criteria for making the final call?
