Jeon Somi has finally won her first solo trophy on a music show for her newest comeback “What You Waiting For”— but sadly, things didn’t go quite as planned.
On this week’s episode of Mnet’s M! Countdown, Somi’s “What You Waiting For” went head-to-head with ATEEZ’s “Inception” for the first place trophy. Somi took home the award and can be seen looking extremely happy and getting emotional after finding out she won. Her previous temporary group I.O.I won many music show awards but this is her first as a soloist.
In her speech, she thanked her parents, fans, The Black Label and as promised, she ate a lemon before her encore stage; she had previously promised fans that if she won, she’d sing her encore stage eating a lemon. While biting through the sour lemon, she got so distracted that her trophy got caught in her grip and the head broke off falling into the group.
It took her a split second to find out and she had the most epic reaction to it, her dancers came to console her as she picked up the pieces and sang her encore stage.

Congratulations on your first win, Somi!
