Although BTS failed to win a Grammy this year, they managed to collect eight trophies from Japan Gold Disc Award – a major Japanese music awards show – setting a new record as a non-Japanese artist.
On the 35th Japan Gold Disc Award aired on Monday, the band won eight categories. Best Artist (Asia), Album of the year (Asia), Best 3 Album (Asia, for BTS’s Map of the Soul: 7, and BTS’s Map of the Soul: 7 ~The Journey~), Best Music Videos (Asia), and Song of the Year by download (Asia) as well as the new awards Best Song of the Year by streaming (Asia) and Best 5 Songs by streaming (Asia).
The Bangtan Boys were honored to be named the best Asian artist for three consecutive years and their mega hit single gained them three awards: Song of the Year by download, Song of the Year by streaming and Best 5 Songs by streaming.
The seven members expressed their thanks towards the fans by saying, “We have won the Best Asian Artist award for the third consecutive year. Thank you ARMY for always giving us a lot of love and support. We would also like to express our gratitude to Producer Bang Si-hyuk and the Big Hit staff who have always been working hard to help us release good music and show great performances.”
Along with the super group, multiple K-pop artists also took home prizes. This year’s Best 3 Albums (Asia) awards were awarded to SEVENTEEN’s 24H. TXT, who made their Japanese debut last year, received two awards – Best New Artist of the Year (Asia), one of this year’s Best 3 New Artists awards along with Stray Kids, who also made their debut in Japan in 2020.
