    I think they should win AOTY too but ill wait for EXO comeback who maybe they sell 2/3 million which i think is unlikely but nevertheless ill wait. With ArOTY nobody had a bigger impact then BTS this year and its only half the year.

    Here's what someone posted from OH about all of BTS accomplishments this year and its not even close.

    If BTS doesn’t win AROTY, you already know the award show is rigged. The impact they had this year is amazing, they even got a congratulatory letter from the President himself...
    But AOTY and SOTY could go to anyone tbh, but BTS have secured AROTY with their achievements this year

    I think Twice and Black Pink have a chance. Korean award shows might surprise you. I mean and indie band won over EXO and BAP when both of them were extremely popular. For all we International fans know BOL4 could win artist of the year or something.....they do extremely well in Korea which is what Korean award shows are based on.

    Everything outside of Korea should be irrelevant for artist of the year.

    In korea they had one medium size hit that is basically it we dont know fully how many albums came from Korea also.

    ArOTY will go to Blackpink. I have a feeling this will happen especially if their next comeback does well

    These are Korean awards.. apart from one album and a single what else have they done?

    How many of these album sales came from Korea also.. These are not International kpop awards.

    That's fair to say ... it's the same thing people were saying when exo's chinese fans were buying albums .... but the fact is they did do well on Melon and that is a korean streaming service... as much as it pains me to admit it (because I don't like armies and the song was pure garbage).

    For sure it's gonna be BTS the winner for ArOTY. They are korean awards, ok, but they are huge in Korea now. And you say international doesn t matter, but they need to agree they are huge everywhere. Even the president agreed. SOTY maybe DDDD, AOTY maybe EXO/TWICE. The competition is huge, but we need to agree BTS are everywhere right now, so quite qualified for ArOTY

    How can you say international succes is not important when the whole of kpop is made into an export product?

    ArOTY should be what the artist achieve not only what is in Korea. Like when Psy got recognition when his song went viral around the world. Anyway with the way everyone was looking at BTS and how proud they were. Award shows making sure they come. Getting a thank you from the president of SK im sure they have this in the bag.
