BTS has been selected as the best artist by fans around the world.
BTS (RM, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook) won the 2018 Mnet Asia Music Awards at the Super Arena in Saitama, Japan on December 12.
The “World Wide Icon of the Year” award will be given to a group that won the most votes in the real-time poll among the 10 groups selected as “Worldwide Fans’ Choice TOP10”. This is one of the four awards that were first established at this year’s ‘MAMA’.
“Mr. Worldwide Handsome is honored to receive the “Worldwide Icon of the Year” award,” Jin said with a loud voice. “We were singers of a very small company until a few years ago,” he said. “But we became the most sought-after singers because we met ARMY. I will love you all my life.”
“The “Worldwide Icon of the Year” award is for our ARMY,” the leader said. “We will give a prize to ARMs who support us all over the world.”
“We received the first award this year,” Suga said. “I hope we have another one next year.” Thank you so much for the award that our fans gave us. I love you.”
BTS reconfirmed their reputation by winning four trophies, including “Top 10,” ” Favorite Dance Artist,” and “Favourite Music Video.”
Meanwhile, the awards for “Worldwide Fans’ Choice TOP10” went to 10 groups including TWICE, MONSTA X, NCT 127, NU’EST W, Wanna One, BLACKPINK, GOT7, MAMAMAMOO, SEVENTEEN and BTS.
Marking its 10th anniversary this year, “MAMA” continued its splendid festival in Japan on the day following the first award ceremony held in Seoul on the 10th. Top domestic and foreign artists have set the stage. The festival will be held in Hong Kong on the 14th.
