BTS, Blackpink and Seventeen win big at MTV Video Music Awards

BTS, Blackpink, and Seventeen took home a bag of trophies from the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, extending a winning streak for K-pop in the global music scene. BTS, the most-nominated group of this year’s awards ceremony, won group of the year for the fourth consecutive year. The MTV VMAs are one of the four major annual US music shows, along with the Billboard Music Awards, Grammy Awards, and American Music Awards.

The K-pop phenomenon’s win was announced at the award ceremony held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Sunday, but the bandmates did not make the trip to the show this time as they are currently focusing on solo projects here in South Korea.

Other nominees who competed in the same category were Blackpink, City Girls, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Maneskin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Silk

Sonic. BTS was also nominated for best K-pop, best choreography, best metaverse performance, and best visual effects. Jungkook was nominated separately in the song of the summer category for “Left and Right,” his collaboration with US singer-songwriter

Charlie Puth.

The septet picked up its first awards at the VMAs in 2019 by winning for best group and best K-pop. It collected another four trophies in 2020 and three

more at last year’s VMAs. Alongside BTS, other K-pop artists snagged nominations at this year’s VMAs and took home prizes as well. [TheKoreaHerald]
