However an awards event isn’t complete without some hiccups, GOT7 had to perform minus two members (Bam Bam and Yugyeom), BTS performed minus Jung Kook and B2ST didn’t even perform, all due to visa problems (which baffles me considering that they would have known for a while that they would be travelling so they should have gotten everything sorted out). There were also some mic problems Ailee’s mic was a tad muted during her collaboration with Epik High for “Happen Ending” the same thing also happened to EXO’s Chen when he performed “Endless Love” with Red Velvets Wendy. Infinite fans also lashed out at the event organisers who did not provide the same transportation service to the group as they did for other artists attending and also  provided the group with only cup ramen during their wait instead of the usual lunch boxes that are provided, the group also had one of their songs cut. Boy group VIXX were also seen riding the subway and TaeTiSeo had one of their two songs cut, one of the TTS girls was also rumoured to have been seen on public transport as well, Super Junior also had no idea that they would be winning anything which meant that leader Leeteuk was the only one on stage to accept the award on behalf of his group. For an event which used to be likened to the Korean Grammy Awards this years GDA’s had numerous hiccups and complaints leading many fans to say that they should have stuck to holding the awards in Seoul so as to avoid these incidents.
