The boys of BTS can’t seem to stop winning.

The “Blood, Sweat & Tears” troupe, which recently revealed plans for a September comeback, can now add another trophy to their ever-growing collection of accolades.

BTS are the recipients of this year’s Artist Award at the 44th Korean Broadcasting Awards on Monday (Jul. 31), selected by 24 panel judges for the Korean Broadcasters Association. The group was honored for their “achievements and influence both in Korea and worldwide.” (Translation via Soompi.)

This win is especially significant given that it is the only artist-based category at the ceremony. Previous Artist Award winners include EXO (2015), PSY (2013) and TVXQ (2011).

BTS recently made international headlines by announcing that they added a new meaning to their English name — “Beyond the Scene” — as well as unveiling a new logo.

Another day, another reason to be a proud ARMY.
