While the 18th KMA nominees were revealed, BTS was repeatedly named in five categories.
BTS was honored to be named in the Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Musician of the Year, Best Pop Genre Album, and Best Pop Genre Song. It is meaningful that it has been four consecutive years nominated for KMA. The award is divided into 24 categories in 3 fields, and this year’s selection committee consists of a total of 65 people.
Member of selection committee Kim Yun-ha said, “It may be a personal idea, but it is an indispensable part when talking about popular music in 2020, including performances and social impacts other than musical evaluation.”
Among the KMA nominees, Baek Ye-rin, Sunwoojunga, Lee Nal-chi, and Jeongmilla were also named in five categories.
The 18th KMA will announce the winners through live online broadcasting at Nodeul Island Music Lounge at 6 pm on the 28th of next month.
