Korean pop singers Girls' Generation, IU and Seulong triumphed on televised music programs over the weekend.
Girls' Generation received the award for the best song for the first half of the year 2010 on KBS' TV music show "Music Bank" with the title track from their second album of the same name "Oh!, beating out 2AM's "I Can't Let You Go."
"Oh!" had dominated K-pop charts for five consecutive weeks from February 5 to March 5.
The nine-member girl group is considered one of the most successful pop idols in the country since their debut in 2007. They have released several hit tracks including "Gee," "Tell Me Your Wish" and "Run Devil Run."
Meanwhile, the latest collaboration "Nagging" by songstress IU and 2AM member Seulong, released on June 3, scored its first Mutizen award on SBS' music program "Inkigayo," also making it the first-ever win for the songstress since her debut in 2008.
"We didn't think the song would be such a hit. We would like to thank all the fans who loved the song," the two singers said in their acceptance speech.
Other contenders on both shows included CNBLUE, 4minute, MBLAQ, f(x) and Seo In-young.
