K-netizens are impressed with BTS’s Daesang All-Kill at MAMA 2021

BTS swept all 4 Daesangs at the 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards even without attendance. 

The 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) took place at 6PM KST on December 11 at CJ ENM’s Contents World in Paju, Gyeonggi province, Korea. Every year MAMA garners much attention because netizens are always curious to see if Mnet pulled any “plot twist” with their awards. Notably, this year is the first time after 7 years that BTS was absent from the artist lineup of MAMA, so fans were worried that Mnet would reduce their Daesangs and give them to other groups. 

However, in the end, even without attendance, BTS was still the biggest winner of MAMA 2021. After MAMA ended, a post on theqoo related to BTS started trending: ‘Artists who won all their nominations and achieved a Daesang All-Kill despite not attending MAMA 2021’.

Artists who won all their nominations and achieved a Daesang All-Kill despite not attending MAMA 2021

Thus, BTS has a total of 9 awards at MAMA 2021 – being the artist who won the most awards at this event. Besides, the group also recorded their name in MAMA‘s history when winning all the Daesang awards in 3 consecutive years (2019,2020,2021). These achievements are definitely the pride of ARMY because they think that with a very successful 2021, BTS truly deserves what they received.

What about non-fans in Korea? Is BTS winning all the Daesangs enough to convince them? According to the comments section below the post, most of Knets said that they felt that BTS receiving 4 Daesang awards was within their expectations considering that MAMA was honest in awarding the awards. Many people also say that although they are fans of other idols, the reality shows that no artist can surpass BTS‘ achievements in 2021.

Meanwhile, many Knetizens are still wondering if ‘Butter’ really deserves the Daesang ‘Song of the Year’.  They thought that IU‘s ‘Celebrity’ or aespa‘s ‘Next Level’ deserved this award.  However, many other Knetizens and fans later responded that MAMA is an award that considers both domestic and international achievements.  And ‘Butter’ is still doing quite well in the domestic digital scene, while its international track record is really on another level.

Some comments of Knet:

  • Congratulations, I’m very proud of BTS.
  • Daebak.. BTS received all the Daesang even though they didn’t attend!
  • I’m not a fan but I could have predicted this.  The reason is because they have global popularity now.
  • I agree with other awards but I don’t know why they have ‘Song of the Year’?!
  • I’m not a fan but I’ve seen them do well last year too, so congrats!
  • Shouldn’t the ‘Song of the Year’ Daesang be given to IU and aespa?  It’s hard to understand.
  • I think this is why you should only like good and talented artists.  Otherwise you will go crazy with jealousy.  So proud of BTS!
  • But I have to admit that there is no other artist deserved those awards, except for Bangtan ㅋ ㅋㅋ
