BTS has accomplished a lot of things recently. Lets start off with the awards they won at Korean music awards . In K-Pop’s music industry, there are three major companies, S.
M. Entertainment, JYP Entertainment and YG Entertainment. The artists who are under these companies are, for the most part, very famous. There are other famous artists who are under other companies, but they are not so famous as the artists who are under these three companies. At the Korean music awards shows like MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards), or MMA (Melon Music Award), there are big and big prizes (daesangs). Rarely, an artist wins these prizes if they are not under one of these three companies. There was a big series for the music awards show, MAMA, for these companies and their artists.
They have won these awards for about 17 years in a row. Recently, this series was broken in 2016 by BTS! They won the award for Best Artist of the Year and it was something that was great and important to them. In 2018, BTS have already won another daesang at the Golden Disc Awards for Best Album of the Year and it’s great because, again, another big series is broken. The artists who come from S.
M. Entertainment have won this daesang for the last nine years. These awards are just some of many. Thy’ve also achieved a lot in the U.S, like being the first kpop group to perform at the American Music Awards. Everyone was very surprised at AMA’s (American Music Awards) when they played for the first time on American television when they danced and sang at the same time. Western artists do not do often.
When they went to BBMA’s, they became more popular because they received more publicity from Americans. When BTS won the award for Best Social Artist, many people were happy, but other people thought they did not deserve it. It was expected because the other nominees were very famous Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes and Ariana Grande. Justin Bieber has won this award for the last six years and the fact that BTS have won is mind-blowing, it was their first time to be nominated too. They broke a lot of records, a world record for the most engagements on Twitter, the music video for “DNA” received more than 20 million views in 24 hours (the largest number of views for a group of K- Pop), their newest album named “Love Yourself: Her” was ranked number one for the best sold iTunes albums in 73 countries, MIC Drop Remix to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 as number 28, and more.
They were also guests on The Ellen Show, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Late Night Show with Jimmy Kimmel, they played on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin ‘Eve and at AMA’s. They were nominated and to win a prize at BBMA’s, they launched a campaign against violence with UNICEF.
