As of 5 p.m. Sunday, Got7 was winning the race with 9,255 votes followed by WINNER with 7,827 votes.

Only a few hours before, WINNER had been leading by 300 votes, making it hard to predict the final result.

The voting is taking place through the Golden Disc’s official application.

Those who vote will become eligible to apply for a ticket to the Golden Disc event.

The voting, which kicked off on Dec. 10, will remain open until the award ceremony is held in Beijing on Jan. 14 and 15.

The awards will be broadcast live through the Chinese video website iqiyi.
