SM Leisure‘s rookie boy group RIIZE made followers and their senior artists NCT DREAM proud with their efficiency on the 2023 Melon Music Awards. And so they didn’t go residence empty-handed.
Eagle-eyed followers observed that the group’s win broke a file from over ten years in the past.
Alongside the venture group ZEROBASEONE, RIIZE gained the award for New Artist of the 12 months. They turned the third SM Leisure group to earn the title—after certainly one of K-Pop’s most influential teams.
Fifteen years in the past, SHINee was the second SM Leisure group to win the New Artist of the 12 months award on the Melon Music Awards in 2008. They took the torch from Tremendous Junior who gained in 2006.
Along with breaking a file that was fifteen years previous, followers have been touched that SHINee was on the awards present to see RIIZE win and cross the torch.
