BTS came to win! They have swept all the Daesang Awards plus more at the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMAs). The ceremony was held on December 4 at the Nagoya Dome in Japan. BTS becomes the first act in history to receive all the Daesangs at MAMA which is impressive as they also swept the Daesangs of the 2019 Melon Music Awards!
BTS won “Artist Of The Year,” “Song Of The Year – Dynamite,” “Worldwide Fan’s Choice,” “Album Of The Year – Map Of The Soul Album,” “Best Music Video – Dynamite,” “Dance Performance Male – Dynamite,” “Best Male Group,” “Worldwide Icon Of The Year,” “2020 Visionary”
The most special moment was when Suga spoke through a phone call and said,
“I am watching the ceremony live. I want to say thank you to ARMY, who have given us the Album of the Year award. It’s the second year in a row that we’ve received the Album of the Year award. This is for the album that received the most love this year, right? We worked hard to prepare this album in the United States and more, so we’re grateful that it received so much love. I feel happy knowing we’ve won Album of the Year. I’m working hard on my recovery, so please don’t worry. A lot of people I know are texting me saying that they’re having fun watching MAMA, but it feels weird because I’m not there. It’s a bit embarrassing to say this, but I’m with you all in spirit. Thank you. ARMY, I love you.”
