The first round of voting will be held from noon on the 6th to 11:59 pm on the 25th on the official voting app of Seoul Music Awards. The second voting period is from noon on the 27th to 11:59 pm on January 15, 2023.

Currently, Im Youngwoonn is leading in the Bonsang category, Le Sserafim in the Rookie Award category, and BTS in the Hallyu Special Award category, while a part of the idols fandom are choosing to boycott the votes. 

Stray Kids' international fandom association said on SNS, "After a long discussion, we agreed not to proceed with voting for the Seoul Music Awards. At last year's ceremony, there is evidence that the winner received the trophy and gave a winning speech before the voting period was even over. The online votes are proven to not reflected."

In addition, a portion of  BTS' fandom also declared a voting boycott, saying, "There has been no feedback or apology from the SMA side for the hurt and damage suffered by the fandom every year." However, it is known that the international fandom is currently still casting votes [for them].

The '32nd Seoul Music Awards' ceremony will be held on January 19, 2023 at KSPO DOME (formerly Gymnastics Arena), Olympic Park, Songpa-gu, Seoul.

1. Last year, Stray Kids was almost reaching 2M votes (paid votes) and was the overwhelming #1 but they didn't receive a single award even in the voting awardㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I can understand why they're boycottingㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
>Hul crazy. Who was the #1 last time?
"The SMA daesang winners who are creating a buzz on Katalk"
- NCT 127
Even BTS who are #1 in physical and #7 in digital couldn't (maybe the judges gave them minus points)
Meanwhile IU who is #1 digitally couldn't.....! 
NCT (from SMA criteria, they were #5 on physical on Hanteo/charted out from the yearly chart)

2. The level of SM music awardㅋㅋ

3. We need to skip all paid voting award

4. No but even when BTS participated in SMA, I've never paid to vote for them... It's been years that SMA have been pulling this and the article is only coming out now...?

5. Why would anyone spend money on SM music award ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. This is the reason why BTS have stopped going for years no? These types of trash award shows are only here to eat your money and give the trophy to someone else

7. BTS always boycott paid stuff

8. Please let's all boycott paid voting systems

9. ㅋㅋㅋ NCT seriouly has no shame 

10. BTS fandom hasn't started boycotting from last year, they've been doing this for years already? There are lots of teenagers still voting for this, but I've uninstalled the app for so long, I don't understand why they pretend to be such a prestigious award show?ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Meanwhile they're making us pay for themㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
