BTS Wins THIS Award For 7 Consecutive Years
The Melon Music Awards shone its spotlight on BTS again after the boy group won four awards.
This year, the HYBE boy group brought home Best Record of the Year (Daesang), Best Group (Male), KakaoBank Everyone's Star, and Melon Top 10 Awards. The first award, Daesang, became the seventh major award it got from the MMAs.
Its Daesang for this year was for its anthology album, Proof, which the band released on June 10. It followed its single, Butter, after 11 months.
The three-CD album introduces new tracks to fans, Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment), Run BTS, and For Youth. It has a total of 48 tracks, with the CD3 solely dedicated to ARMYs.
BTS has been bagging the Daesang since 2016, and it has been doing so in the past seven years.
BTS’ Total Daesang
The group’s latest Daesang became its 66th Daesang award in South Korea.
Since the beginning of its career in 2013 with 2 Cool 4 Skool, BTS members have done their best to reach the place they are currently in now. Although they almost quit, their hard work paid off when they got a nomination for Best Dance Performance (Male) for Boy In Luv at the 2014 Mnet Asian Music Awards.
BTS waited three years since its debut before scoring its first-ever Daesang for Album of the Year at the Melon Music Awards.
Aside from 66 local major awards, BTS also recorded a whopping number of awards from different American Music shows, including Billboard Music Awards (12), American Music Awards (12), People’s Choice Awards (11), iHeart Music Awards (10), Video Music Awards (10), Teen Choice Awards (7), and Kids’ Choice Awards (6).
