BTS won two awards at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan (VMAJ) for 'Best Group Video/International' for 'Butter' and 'Best Collaboration Video/International' award for 'My Universe'. Their Youtube Channel ‘BANGTANTV’ also crossed 60 million subscribers.


With this, BTS enjoyed the joy of receiving the award for four consecutive years from 2018 to this year. Starting with 'Best Group Video/International' in 2018, it won the 'Best Buzz Award' in 2019, and won 'Best Group Video/International' with 'Dynamite' last year. This is the first time this year has been awarded in two categories.

The award-winning music video special will be broadcast from 9 pm on November 3. Meanwhile, 'MTV VMAJ' is the Japanese version of 'MTV VMA', the largest music awards ceremony in the US, and has been held every year since 2002.

The '2021 AMA' announced the nominees for the awards ceremony on the official website and SNS on the 28th (local time). BTS was nominated in three categories. They were nominated for 'Artist of the Year', 'Favorite Pop Duo/Group', and 'Favorite Pop Song'. This is the first time that BTS has been nominated for 'Artist of the Year'.
