BTS is the first idol group and the youngest winner ever at the 'Korean Popular Culture and Arts Award'

BTS is awarded at 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

On October 24, the award ceremony took place at the Olympic Hall in Seoul. The Big Hit Entertainment boy group is awarded the 'Order of Cultural Merit', which gives recognition to those who played a vital role in improving the national culture and development. BTS is recognized for spreading K-pop and Hangeul round the world. They're the first idol group ever and the youngest figure in the award ceremony history to receive an award.


Leader RM gave his award speech first. He stated, "Thank you so much. As a leader of BTS, I was in charge of the award speech but we get to share individual speeches so I want other members to have a chance to speak a lot today. I want to give this honor to ARMYs."

Next, Jin said, "First, thank you so much for the award. We travel overseas often and people sing along to our song in Korean and tell us they've studied Korean. I am so proud and will work hard to spread our culture."

V stated, "I don't know. I'm not sure how to express this feeling in my mind right now. I think my family will be very proud of me. And ARMYs, I am not good at expressing but I want to tell you that I really appreciate and love you. I hope everyone here is filled with only good days."

SUGA said, "This is an honor to my family. Thank you so much. So much happened this year from #1 on Billboard, 'Billboard Music Awards', 'AMA', UN speech, but I think the 'Order of Cultural Merit' is the biggest honor. I will spread Korean music to the world with the mind of a national representative."

Jimin said, "My heart feels like it's going to explode because it was always the leader hyung giving the speech but I'm standing here right now. Everyone, this award is so meaningful because it was created by our members, employees, staff, manager hyungs, and you guys. It feels very huge to me. I am so grateful for you guys who're with us together and I want to tell you guys that this is by you. I sincerely appreciate it. I think we are the youngest hoobaes here. I am honored to meet the sunbaenims I sincerely admire. Just like the sunbaenims, I will work hard to become a person that gives good influence to many people."

Jungkook stated, "First, thank you for giving us such meaning award. I think it's a great honor to be accepting an award with the sunbaenims here. And to be honest, I feel like this award is very overwhelming to us. But I will think that it was given for us to work harder and gratefully accept it. I appreciate ARMYs who cheer for us from close and afar, our family, and Bang Si Hyuk daepyonim. I will spread Korean culture to various places around the world."

Last but not least, j-hope said, "This is j-hope, the hope of BTS. I have been continuously saying this (introduction) and I'm so so happy that I'm actually becoming a hope to Korean pop culture. 'Order of Cultural Merit' - it's really a big award. It's a heavy award containing the hard work and passion of numerous staff members, BTS' blood and sweat, and worldwide ARMYs cheers. I will become the hope to the pop culture and amazingly promote. Thank you so much. ARMYs, I love you."

Thank you for the translations of their speeches. It's such a meaningful day in BTS members' lives. This award reflects recognition in Korea and they're the youngest people to receive it. They're making history once again.

They are the first and youngest group to win the Order of Cultural Merit Award (the "daesang") not the first winners at the awards.

AKP you've got the wrong title lol. BTS are not the FIRST neither the YOUNGEST at the the Korean popular culture and arts awards. They are the youngest and first to receive the Order of Cultural Merit yes, but not the first or the youngest at the ceremony. Multiple awards are given at the ceremony so you should search a little more instead of giving false info. Other idol groups like Twice have won other awards last year. Your title is just misleading and false. Anyways congrats to BTS for that award though since the winners have all like 40 years+ experience. They need a new bag for all the achievements.

The first and the youngest to receive the highest awards a.k.a daesang at this ceremony


The rest of the awards are irrelevant. No point of akp to hype up

LMAO there is no daesang at this ceremony. It ain't not award show sis. And the title clearly says the first and youngest AT THE CEREMONY which is false. EVERY award given is relevant since it's given by the Ministry and Governement to people who helped spreading the Korean culture aka why you are here at this moment. You should be grateful for everyone. Don't be this kind of person.

I just finished watching the entire event on VLIVE. Its surreal to watch BTS win such an honorable award along with other distinguished medal winners.

I was looking up on the web about the other winners. Such an amazing group of talented people. And when Mr. Lee Soon Jae spoke it was truly heartfelt and pure.

Felt a sense of pride watching BTS share the same stage as these great artists who have such a huge body of work. Inspiring

Pretty sure Red Velvet and a lot other famous celebrities were there as well but as always BTS comes first. Can we have an actual list of winners at the event instead of just focusing on one winner...

Order of Merit >>>>>>>>> commendation. BTS are also the first group and youngest people overall to be awarded this. It's a record on its own. Go cry somewhere else.

They won the daesang, something only ever done by seniors 50+ years old... this is a big moment for kpop so can we actually give credit and appreciation where it's due instead of being petty and hating on bts for their accomplishments...

Yeah those are the smaller awards like what Red Velvet won at the Korean Popular Culture and Arts Award this year. BTS won a huge award that is the Order of Merit Awards at this same award and there's 5 classes in which they got the 5th (Flower, Hwagwan) class. Most people that got them usually have like 20 years of experience. They are considered the youngest and first idol group to get this award. Even a lot of amazing and famous actors, actresses, and comedians like Yoo Jae Suk (Korea's Best MC) haven't gotten an Order of Merit yet (but he did get a Presidential Commendation award which is still an amazing award). I think this has a better article explaining the types of award https://www.soompi.com/article/1246307wpp/winners-...
