BTS – “Boy With Luv” (21 wins)
Needless to say, BTS’s “Boy With Luv” is not just the song with the most trophies in 2019, but a record of the most trophies for a song in K-Pop history.
Looking at the chart above, it’s can easily be seen that the two most famous names of K-Pop at the moment – TWICE and BLACKPINK – are absent. Both “Fancy” and “Kill This Love” has a very good performance on digital charts, album sales, and Youtube views but these YG and JYP girl groups only win 3 – 4 wins during their promotion. The main reason for this, many netizens have debated, is because of them focusing too much on abroad schedules (concerts, events,…). Also, because their comeback was quite close to BTS’s impressive one.
