*Story of the Year
This category was created for international fans to vote on the most interesting/shocking story of 2011 and it went to:
“KARA’s Hara & B2ST’s Junhyung confirmed to be in a relationship!“
This was one of the first idol couple announcements, one in which both parties admitted to the relationship. Although the news shocked and upset many fans, it was also admirable, that for once, agencies admitted to their idols dating. This forever changed the landscape of K-Pop idol dating, where fans started to accept and encourage more idols to date openly.
