People Are Contesting LABOUMs Unexpected Win Over IU On Last Nights Episode Of Music Bank

Last night, girl group LABOUM took home their first ever music show win on Music Bank for their recent comeback song Hwi Hwi. The group was up against IUs popular song Cant Love You Anymore, which features artist Oh Hyuk.

The group won over IU by a total of about 400 points, as they received a final score of 4546 points while IU received a final score of 4165 points. It was an emotional encore stage for the group, as this was their first music show trophy since their debut four years ago; however, their win was unfortunately met with more hostility than celebration.
