Congratulations to all the winners! So happy with the nominations as well as the winners, for the first time a 2020-21 award show didn't feel boring with the winners, great variety in winners! I rooted for Happening by AKMU but since it released late so nevermind - A blink, army, midzy, uaena, teume:)

Y'all, stop commenting stuff like "BTS should get more than 1 award". All artists got the recognition they deserved and nothing less. BTS is an amazing group, nonetheless
