BTS is Artist of the Year for the third time at the Korean Music Awards, AESPA and IU win big
BTS ARMY has yet another reason to celebrate. The septet, consisting of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook, won Artist of the Year at the Korean Music Awards for the third time. In 2018, they made history by becoming the first idol group to win Artist of the Year. They won again in 2019.
ARMY took to Twitter to celebrate the honor. One fan wrote, “BTS won Daesang ‘Musician of the Year’ at the 2022 Korean Music Awards! Well-deserved congratulations! BTS has 65 Daesangs now. Another tweeted, “I will always congratulate BTS because they keep on winning awards, no one does it like BTS.”
BTS will perform in Seoul for their concert, Permission To Dance On Stage from March 10 to 14, which will be their first offline concert in nearly two years. In April, the group should attend the Grammy’s, then host a four-day concert in Las Vegas. ARMY had previously expressed concern for the boys as five of them had contracted Covid and Jimin had undergone surgery for appendicitis. Nonetheless, the band have recovered and are back to rehearsals, going through their recent flood of photos on Instagram.
At the Korean Music Awards, Aespa won a total of three awards, including two major ones (the four major awards that cover all music genres). They won Song of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and Best K-Pop Song for their song Next Level. South Korean singer and actor IU won Best Pop Song and Best Pop Album.
