BTS has been nominated for the '2018 Korean Popular Culture and Arts Award'.
The 'Korean Popular Culture and Arts Award' is a prestigious ceremony hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism.
The Big Hit Entertainment boy group has been nominated for the 'Order of Merit' category, which gives recognition to those who played a vital role in improving the national culture and development. The 'Order of Merit' is also the highest award, even above the 'Presidential Award'.
BTS is the youngest figure and also the first ever idol group in the award ceremony's history to be nominated.
Back in 2012, Psy was awarded the 'Order of Merit'. No K-Pop group has been given the award yet.
The winners will be announced in the near future.
