Why Korean hotties Exo will win MTV best worldwide act

This weekend, brace yourselves for another storm of not-so-nice tweets.

We predict that Exo will take home the Best Worldwide Act trophy at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs), to be held in Amsterdam on Sunday.

In the fan-voted category, the 12-member K-pop boy band is up against popular acts from all corners of the world including, notably, One Direction and Justin Bieber, who have some of the most "assertive" supporters in the world of fandom.

(Directioners spewed hateful, shocking tweets over a July GQ magazine interview that dared call Harry Styles a playboy.)

So when Exo take home the trophy, the boys may be at the receiving end of some harsh remarks.

Just look at what happened with Kpop group Girls' Generation earlier this week when they won Video Of The Year at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards, beating the likes of Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Bieber and One Direction.

Twitter users even asked what business they had being in the US when they can't speak English (hello, some of them were born and raised there!).

No matter.

Here is why we think Exo will take home the title.
