SNSD has been elected “Rookie of the Year” by the Japan Record Awards. On the morning of the 20th, four groups were given the “Rookie of the Year” award. The four groups were SNSD, ICONIQ, Kikuchi Madoka and S/mileage.

SNSD, who was awarded the Rookie of the Year award, will now be able to aim for the “Best New Artist” award, which will be announced on the day of the actual award ceremony. Last year, BIGBANG won the “Best New Artist” award, and if SNSD continues and wins this year, then it will be the 2nd year in a row that a Korean artist has won the “Best New Artist” award.
