K-pop group Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) made history after getting nominated and winning at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. They bested other nominees like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendez. BTS also ended Justin’s six-year winning streak.
They are the first K-pop group to have won at the music awards. Korean singer Psy won the Top Streaming Song (Video) award for "Gangnam Style” in 2013.
"ARMY, our fandom, thank you very much. We still cannot believe that we're standing here on this stage at the Billboard Music Awards, oh my gosh. It is so great to see all the artists we admire, and we feel honored to be in this category with all these great artists right in front of us,” Rap Monster (Kim Nam-Joon) said.
