    You are not at all incorrect.

    (Also I don't know if it was the clocks turning back an hour or what but I'm up super early - anyway, off to work on this!)

    Can you believe we're really at the end of our 3rd Won Prize already! After what's been by far the longest and by FAR the biggest Prize to date, 416 songs have been narrowed to 2. Of the fighters still left in the running, one choice was a clear front-runner going in, while the other was perhaps a bit of a dark horse. In the end, it's come down to 2NE1's "I Love You" and INFINITE's "The Chaser" duking it out in the championship match of our 3rd annual Prize.

    So? Which song has won the Won? You've voted and the results are in, but before we get ahead of ourselves, let's take a look at some of the reasons you all liked these songs so much in the first place...

    Congratulations to INFINITE! Our winner of the 3rd annual 20 Won Music Prize and our first boy group winner since 2010! The amount of 20₩ is in the mail, safely on its way to Korea.

    Phew! Was sweating it out there at the end haha. This concludes yet another edition of the 20 Won Music Prize! (wooooo I can finally have my life back haha - kidding). Thank you all for making this year's Prize so great and for sticking with it all the way through the end. You guys are amazing, which is nothing less than a year as amazing as 2012 deserved. Though 2009 might be more iconic and 2010 might give it a run for its money, 2012 might just have been my favorite year of K-Pop ever. The sheer number of quality songs from a variety of artists is reflected perfectly on our final ranking, which should be published tomorrow along with all the other stats, videos, and fun stuff, so hopefully you all come back for that.

    As for me that's all for now! I'll see you all again back here in a year to do this all over again with the 2013 singles, but until then I say 안녕히계세요 and good day!

    Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    I never vote in the final (unless there's a tie that needs breaking - which has never happened before)

    mmmmm tough choice. Both options are in my mind among each act's most defining (and certainly best) songs, but of the two I was probably leaning more towards 2NE1 - simply because I'm not sure if they'll get another moment like this, while INFINITE are very consistent in their discography thanks to Sweetune. Also I feel there is something more unique about I Love You, as opposed to The Chaser which has to compete with every other Sweetune produced song (if it was against STEP or Jumping would it have won?)

    On the other hand I do love The Chaser and I am happy and honestly shocked a boy band won the Prize AT ALL. I really never thought that would happen again, so I was pleasantly proven wrong by that.

    Honestly though my #1 was BAD BOY, haha. I wanted a boy band to win this year (and I knew Big Bang had at least a shot) it just wasn't the one I wanted! haha. Still pleased with the result though and over the moon for INFINITE. What a meteoric rise they've had and The Chaser is definitely the culmination, and a worthy winner any way you slice it.
     
  12. Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    Omg.

    I legit just screamed holy shit!!! when I saw that "The Chaser" won. I scared my dog, poor thing. I was not expecting that, wowzers. Great result! My fave one!!!

    Also Hyogre had me in stitches hahaha.

    Great show everyone. Of course thank you 3Xs oppa for doing this whole thing. I am nervously excited for 2013.
     
  13. Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    (I know I didn't take part till the end but...) Oh how disappointing, I don't even know a song by Infinite...

    HYOGRE has me screaming! 'Hyogre plays I Got A Boy'!!!! *cry*

    My apologies to your dog Jinah. haha.

    Also I didn't mention it but as with the last prize all the final votes / arguments will be posted in their entirety after the stats go up. Couldn't use all of them in the post unfortunately as I had to keep a balance and suspense between the two songs before the reveal!

    2NE1 don't release new music, they don't get my vote.

    *exits fiercely*
     
  16. Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    WHOA! I was almost certain that 2NE1 will win. Happily surprised!

    Best part is always scrolling down to the winner. It's all about the journey haha. Once again, amazing job 3Xs!
     
  17. Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    Wow, an unexpected but welcome result! Before the contest started, my best guess was that the final would come down to I Love You vs Alone, with ILY the slight favorite, but I'm glad my #3 of the year ended up winning. I didn't like ILY at first, but it's grown on me a lot, and reading the reasons people like it so much helps me appreciate it more (I still think Scream is better though).

    A big thanks to 3Xs for hosting this thing! I know it's a massive undertaking and it just keeps getting bigger each year, but your presentation has been excellent throughout. It more than makes up for all the unnecessary wear and tear on my mouse wheel.

    Looking forward to all the stats!
     
  18. Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    I couldn't even really bring myself to vote, both songs are pretty fucking superb, and my true #1 of last year was booted last round (love u, 'Alone').
     
  19. Re: The 3rd Annual Popjustice 20 ₩on Music Prize (THE WINNER)

    AMAZING.

    *Bows to GODXs*

    INFINITE winning even caused the main Pop & Justice section to go down for a bit AND made Off-topic rise from the ashes. GODFINITE.

    I will not forgive or forget BAD BOY not winning though. I MIGHT consider forgiveness if Taeyang wins next year.

    Oh my God! I hate you 3Xs, I spent two minutes and six seconds staring at the Street Fighter logo, because I thought something was gonna happen in that video.
    Ok, maybe I hate myself for that too.

    I'm really happy for The Chaser and Infinite. Obviously I Love You was my top pick, but you can't fault anything about The Chaser. It was pure perfection vs. pure perfection. (Plus, this keeps my secret theory, that neither 2NE1 nor SNSD will ever win the Won prize, intact).

    It was an amazing Won Prize and once again great job by 3Xs!
    I have to agree with you, 2012 might just be my favourite year in K-Pop of all time. 2009 has all the big, big moments, but 2012 was just an overall level of really, really good moments.
