External Data - The data available for us. This excludes the repeated streamings.
Internal Data - This is the raw data without excluding any repeated streaming.
(T/N: Repeated streaming: playing one song for more than 1 times every hour. (they say even if you play the song +24 times every day, they only count max 24 plays from your account))
The criteria of MMA is 70% music score and 30% votes. And Melon uses the raw internal data which does not exclude repeated streaming to calculate/select the award winner.
According to external data which excludes repeated streaming - EXO wins
According to internal data which does not exclude repeated streaming - BTS wins
What does this mean? BTS has higher accumulated streaming.
Conclusion - BTS won the Daesang and Melon gave us feedback that they will not reverse their decision. Internal data = Daesang. Daesang = Internal Data.
+) External -> Internal is not part of External -> External is part of Internal so how can you argue "We're leading in external data!" ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ External data is calculated from Internal data, oh god ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
+) you guys make me add more stuff ㅋㅋㅋㅋ so many of you say "EXO is higher in External Data"... then please bring me proof that EXO scored higher in internal data... You guys are just arguing based on what you believe... Melon stated their official statement... It's funny how you guys keep finding faults on how BTS scored higher in the internal data which we can't even see, do you know that? All this time, Melon has been awarding winners based on their internal data and they never revealed their internal data to the public ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Are you guys trying to argue that the previous MMAs were ghost ceremonies because they were based on internal data? Then you guys have to spit out all the awards you guys took home ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
+) Daesang and Melon's statement are the proofs of BTS. Your proofs are assumptions made by fans. Doesn't this solve the problem already? What other proof do you need besides the Daesang?
+) ah you guys are killing me ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I brought facts so EXO fans, please bring me facts too~ remove all your claims and bring me facts. Facts which were proved! Only facts! I'm not receiving any claims and assumptions~ and bring me evidence that proves your facts are reliable to turn the table~
+) What's wrong with some of you complaining "I thought this was over. Why are you dragging this still?" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ This will only end when EXO fans finally admit the award's owner ㅋㅋ I posted this because it's not over yet. If this was over why would I even post this ...

1. We finally see a well-summarized post. +113 -55
2. But here's the important part. They go after all places asking for internal data and they file complaints to journalists to write about Melon's corruption. Sir, the journalists will be defaming the artists when they write articles without accurate data./ Bad behaviors of EXO Ls - sending mentions to BTS, damaging Melon's reputation/image and they made an artist to look as if they fabricated data. And the organizations affected by their enormous number of complaints./ EXO Ls, if you're not going to apologize please keep quiet. Seriously this is your specialty, trying to get over problems without apologizing? no? +105 -45
ㄴif you have a problem with fans directly mentioning your artist on Twitter, you should go complain it on Twitter ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ +0 -8
ㄴ If I have to go complain direct mentioning on Twitter, you should go complain about MMA to Melon. Why do you always dominate the best talk rankings with MMA related posts? +19 -1
2. EXO fans, please read the original post properly before you actually hit the downvote button or post your rebute if you have something called conscience in you ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ stop bringing fabricated evidence. This is the official statement by Gaon Chart~~ Melon and Gaon said it's not true so how could BTS manipulate them to get the award? With what power? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ If you continue to not let go of this seriously I got no words for you. I wonder who is the inflammatory person here tsk +101 -52
ㄴcan't you see the date you moron?
ㄴ no. when did I say that Gaon and Melon are the same? I never said this was posted today too. I just wanted to show how extreme you guys are ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ omg they're all suffering dyslexia. +3 -0
ㄴ that's long before MMA ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ are you blind? +1 -3
ㄴI think those who say "this isn't related to MMA" were shot in their head ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ we're trying to show how extreme some of you can be~ +6 -0
ㄴWe're not talking about MMA. Just look at how extreme some of you sound for an official account to react like this. That's what we're trying to show you ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ +2 -0
3. I think it's a fact that they're not trying to believe any facts because they don't want to admit BTS's win. +44 -15
4. I'm from another fandom and I understood you post at once. It's right for BTS to win the Daesang +40 -5
5. This is the fact. If some of you refuse to believe this... you are denying the reality.... ^^ +40 -14
6. wow ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ you guys are hilarious ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ EXO Ls used to dominate the best talk ranking every day with their post and when ARMYs post something you guys comment "stop it now" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I've seen the ARMYs posts and I think this is their first time posting something over here. I get that you're sick of this but you need to think in ARMYs' opinion ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ you guys tell them "you're sick of this" and ask them to stop posting when they just post one refutation post ㅋㅋ you guys are awful +36 -5
7. I get the fact but what's the point of summarizing? Most EXO Ls have been brainwashed so even with evidence in front of them they shout "shut up! we're the best". Nothing will go inside their heads even if you attack them with facts. Just let them go because whatever they say, we're saying the truth, right? +35 -11
8. BTS won the award because they deserved it.. well, there's no reason for Melon to try their best to manipulate in order to award BTS. This is just what I think as a muggle.. +27 -5
ㄴ they got caught dividing the awards +1 -5
ㄴ I agree BTS deserved the award. Above commenter is shaking in anger~~? ㅠㅠ please rebute +5 -0
ㄴ Ikrㅋㅋㅋ why would Melon divide their award and give one to BTS????? I mean isn't it better for Melon to stay on the good side of companies with more artist? There's no reason for Melon to award BTS and go through all your wickedness +8 -0
ㄴ the first reply ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ dividing their awards ㅋㅋ I can see your standard really... I wish we could live in a simple world like that +3 -0
