It was a historic night as BTS has won Top Social Artist at the BBMAs!


The boys are making history as the first K-pop group ever to attend the show, and they gave out various interviews to the media that were highly interested in what they had to say. Now, it was just announced that BTS is the winner of their Top Social Artist category - no surprise, as they were dominating their votes. The boys won over others such as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes.


Psy won at the 'Billboard Music Awards' back in 2014 but BTS became the first K-pop group to win a 'Billboard Music Award'.


Congratulations!

Okay, so I learned something new today. If you post a neutral comment on BTS articles only, you're a troll. And if you aren't a troll and try and defend yourself, then you're actually a "lonely attention seeking troll whether you admit it or not". Because no one knows you better than a stranger on the internet.

It's just ARMYs are defensive since BTS is being attacked left and right so we are being protective, did you read comments under BTS articles? there are so many trolls posting comments everywhere that we have learned how to be brave and comment back to the antis since other fandoms are ganging up on us and we, ARMYs are all by ourselves, we are annoying they say, but did they ever analyze the situation in our perspective? when so any fandoms joined the "BreakWINGS" project I have promised to myself that I cannot always stay quiet because it has been so much, so the best thing to do when you want to comment something neutral to a BTS article, you either keep it to yourself or try to phrase it nicely so it will not sound like a hate or troll comments to fans, please understand why we're being defensive, we just had enough of the hate being directed to our favorite artists

That Army who tweeted to Mike Mahan (the BBMA director) for BTS to be invited deserves to be credited too. If it wasn't for that tweet, this wouldn't hv been possible. Thank u fellow Army! :)

I can't help but think what would have happened if they won the award but weren't invited to receive it? *shudders* That ARMY should be a decorated general.

We don't know if BBMA was already planning to invite before that tweet was sent to the director. I'm guessing not, because they probably underestimated the amount of BTS's fans in U.S.

I can't believe this happened, but it did. I can't contain my feels right now. I'm just so happy and so proud. They deserve it and ARMYs worked hard. They did it. We did it. Let's grow kpop and get kpop to be recognized even more than this. I'm sure so many Koreans and kpop idols are very proud of BTS right now. It's no wonder kpop idols look up to BTS, even I would.
