BTS Wins Big at 2018 Seoul Music Awards
South Korean boy band BTS was among the big winners at the 2018 Seoul Music Awards.
The K-pop group took home the Daesang Award, an honor similar to Artist of the Year, at the awards show Thursday.
BTS' win broke fellow boy band EXO's four-year winning streak. The group, also known as the Bangtan Boys, celebrated the achievement by sharing several photos of the award with their 12 million Twitter followers.
"Army and Bangtan Daesang!!!!!!!!" the singers wrote, referencing their fan base, known as "Army."
BTS last released the album Love Yourself: Her in September, which includes the singles "DNA" and "MIC Drop (Remix)" featuring Steve Aoki. Aoki teased a new project with the group in an interview Thursday with Trending Live.
"Now we got some new music coming out for 2018," the American music producer and DJ said. "Now we have some original music as well."
"[They're] great guys," he added. "They're all different personalities and they're all live. You hang out with them in a room and they're all throwing in their thing."
