BTS swept the Daesangs at the 2020 Melon Music Awards.
The K-pop band have had their most successful year to date, dropping two albums and gaining their first and second number one singles in the US,
So it’s unsurprising that the band was named artist of the year at the MMAs.
RM, J-Hope, Jin, V, Jimin and Jungkook were there to accept their awards; Suga was absent as he continue to take time off while he recovers from shoulder surgery.
Not content with artist of the year, BTS also took home the awards for best album for Map Of The Soul: 7, best song for Dynamite, best dance (male) and netizen’s choice.
They were also named in the Top 10 category alongside BLACKPINK, IZ*ONE, Lim Young Woong, Oh My Girl, Baekhyun, IU, Kim Hojoong, Yerin Baek and ZICO.

Following their award wins, the boys delivered their eagerly anticipated performance, opening up the medley with a powerful contemporary dance set to the intro to Black Swan.
The band then segued into ON, and gave a sweet nod to their missing member by leaving a gap between V and Jimin as they walked slowly down the stairs.
Lights spelled out the phrase ‘BE THERE’, with fans on screens around the world appearing on screen with their BTS lightsticks and memorabilia, before the boys performed their most recent single Life Goes On.
And of course, what 2020 BTS performance could go ahead without Dynamite being involved?

Rocking glitter-embellished suits, the band performed the worldwide hit with their usual energy and an extended disco-tastic dance break, and fans watching the show online were loving it.
The MMAs were held virtually and without an audience this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, although some of the artists appeared in person to accept their awards.
Other big winners included Monsta X, The Boyz and BLACKPINK, who all took home awards.
It’s a big weekend for K-pop fans, as the Mnet Asian Music Awards take place tomorrow.
