The song stopped for a brief moment, giving artists to state their names. "My name is Yang Seung-ho" "My name is Kim Ga-hee" "My name is Shin Moon-chul" "My name is Um Tae-woo," representing something of a breakthrough moment for those pursuing a career in the music industry.

IU, upon receiving the 'Album Of The Year' award, stated "I yearned for this award, and it indeed feels good to hold it in my hand. I thank all the listeners and fans. I'll continue perspiring to become a singer and a producer who understands the significant value of 'music,' and stay away from perceiving music solely as a means of fame and wealth."
