The 14th Korean Music Awards took place a few months ago in February. Although it doesn’t attract as much attention as other award ceremonies, the Korean Music Awards is significant because it relies solely on musical talent as the judging criteria, rather than the music’s mainstream popularity and commercial success. The Best Album Award went to E SENS, who is serving time for marijuana usage, and the New Artist Award was given to the indie band, Hyukoh. However, the center of attention was undoubtedly Flash Flood Darlings, who won Best Dance and Electronic Song. Born in Korea, the artist, who has spent much time abroad, spoke Q&A: Electronica Musician Flash Flood Darlings out on behalf of the LGBT community, saying: “I knew from when I was a boy that I was gay, but it was hard because people looked at me strange. I wish somebody would’ve told me then that being gay isn’t weird. So I want to take this chance to tell young queer people, you are all beautiful.” His remarks instantly became the talk of the town.
