J-Hope, the only member who attended this year’s MAMA, received the Red Carpet Bibigo Culture & Style Award and The Most Popular Male Singer Award. He screamed “ARMY” and expressed his strong aspiration, saying, “I will show you the results, not just words.”


J-Hope said, “For BTS, 2022 is a year in which the seven grown-ups went through growing pains. We tried to find the best way in that situation. All of us are looking back on themselves and are growing according to our individual needs. We ask for your support for our future moves.”

The last remaining Daesang winner, Yogibo Song of the Year, was IVE with “LOVE DIVE”. IVE said with tears in their eyes, “It’s an honor just to stand on the big stage, but we received a valuable award. We will do better in the future. We will become a group that shows a good image.”  


The Best Male Artist award was won by Lim Young Woong. He said, “Thank you to the fans who allowed me to receive a great award. I hope that everyone who is watching this will always be healthy and happy.” Nayeon, who won Best Female Artist, said, “This year was a really big challenge for me. I’m so happy that you showed me a lot of interest and love.”
