The winter K-pop awards season is upon us, and BTS continues to take it by storm! From topping awards lists to incredible performances, BTS and ARMY have a lot to celebrate this week.
BTS kicked off the week at the Melon Music Awards, where they swept all the grand prizes: Artist of the Year, Album of the Year (MAP OF THE SOUL : 7), and Song of the Year (Dynamite). In addition, BTS won Best Dance - Male (Dynamite), Netizen’s Choice, and Top Ten Artist. Meanwhile, SUGA and IU won Best Rock for eight.
Of course, it’s not an awards show without great performances, and BTS definitely delivered! The performance started with Jimin and Jungkook dancing a beautiful classical version of Black Swan, and transitioned into ON, Life Goes On, and Dynamite.
The very next day ARMY was treated to more wins and another BTS performance at Mnet Asian Music Awards.
BTS once again swept all the grand prizes - becoming the only act to do this twice. They achieved Album of the Year (MAP OF THE SOUL : 7), Icon of the Year, Song of the Year (Dynamite), and Artist of the Year. BTS also won Best Dance Performance - Male (Dynamite), Best MV (Dynamite), Worldwide Fan’s Choice, and Best Male Group. Additionally, eight won Best Collaboration.
Life Goes On also acquired its fourth win on Inkigayo.
BTS was named Consequence of Sound’s 2020 Band of the Year. On BangtanTV, Big Hit released a Bangtan Bomb where the boys reviewed the BE album in units of 3. On the Billboard Hot 100 chart Dynamite ranked at #10 while Life Goes On was at #28.
Dynamite surpassed 500 million streams on Spotify, marking yet another milestone for BTS and ARMY!
BTS was also busy on YouTube, posting two videos in collaboration with SiriusXM. In the first video, BTS answered fans’ questions about BEand shared their 2021 resolutions. The boys’ resolutions for 2021 are “health, happiness, and being able to tour again.” For them and ARMY both. The second was BTS Play 'This or That' (Round 2), where they voted on their preferences between two things such as “coffee or tea.” Only two of the members voted for tea - can you guess who?
On VLive, Run BTS! Episode 119 aired. This episode was the second part of a hilarious photo story challenge and it was full of plot twists and laughter. Make sure to check it out, ARMY!
The Make It Right (feat. Lauv) MV surpassed 100 million views and as of December 11, it stands at 100,476,906 views. The third episode of “Maplestory X BTS” was released, all about design and creativity, in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere.
This was a day of many videos and another award. TIME Magazine named BTS the Entertainer of the Year. A Bangtan Bomb, in which we witnessed the boys visit and discover the BTS Pop Up store located in Seoul was released along with an Amazon Music interview, and an adorable holiday remix of Dynamite complete with a Christmas tree and jingle bells! Lee Seunggi dropped a song in collaboration with Namjoon and Hoseok called The Song That Will Make You Smile.
BTS won first place on Music Bank with Dynamite - the song’s 27th win. Congratulations to BTS for all the awards they’ve received!
Wow, what a week! Let’s take some time to celebrate the boys’ successes and come back next week for more updates.
