It is no doubt that K-Pop is taking the world by storm and the wins taken home by superstars BTS and BLACKPINK from the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards proves them to be among the harbingers of this revolution.

Last August 30, the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards took place in a different orientation than usual given the current COVID19 pandemic. The awards show which was supposed to be held at a packed Barclays Center. Instead, it transitioned into an online, audience-less event with some of the award-winning artists performing remotely from different locations around New York City. K-Pop superstars BTS was one of the performers alongside The Black Eyed Peas, DaBaby, The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Maluma with CNCO, and Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande.

Winning awards and breaking records is almost a second nature now to K-Pop superstars, BTS. In 2019, VMAs added other fan-voted categories: Best K-Pop and Best Group to the awards ceremony. BTS, being the award-winning group they are, bagged these awards with ease. This year, BTS was nominated in four categories including their previous awards, Best K-pop and Best Group, as well as Best Choreography and Best Pop – but the MTV Video Music Award for Best Pop in particular has a fine distinction.
