Everything You Need to Know About the Billboard Music Awards’ Breakout Korean-Pop Group BTS

On Sunday night’s 2017 Billboard Music Awards, a new boy band that’s becoming famous worldwide won the Top Social Artist award and they are Korean-pop BTS.

The group appeared on Live From the Red Carpet and they can’t help but be excited for being at the event.

“I mean, it’s crazy. This is the first time we’ve come to like an American award show and it’s also Billboard,” BTS told E! News‘ Sibley Scoles. “The name is really huge for us. We’ve been listening to Billboard since we were like eight.”

Things got more exciting when they heard their name onstage for the fan-voted award presented by ION360, beating out Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes. They are the first K-pop group to win a Billboard Music Award.

“We still can’t believe that we’re standing here on this stage at the Billboard Music Awards,” the K-pop boy band said. “It’s so great to see all the artists we admire. To be in this category with such great artists, just really honored.”

“And most importantly, this award belongs to all the people around the world that shine their love and light on us by the millions and make BTS proud. Please remember what we say, love yourself,” BTS added.

Rap Monster told ET’s Cameron Mathison backstage after receiving the award, “We never expected that, but before [they announced it], cameras were in front of us, and we were like, ‘Seriously?’ Like, ‘OK, OK.’ But we heard the name and it’s like, we’re speechless. We cannot say a word, it’s crazy.”

“[Fans have] been waiting on the red carpet and even so many fans are in the arena. It’s crazy,” said Rap Monster, alongside bandmates Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. “Thank you for shouting out for us, thank you for voting for us, thank you for waiting for us and everything, please.”

The band also had a fan backstage, 16-year-old son of Celine Dion, Rene-Charles Angelil.

“They’re pretty good! I like them, yeah,” Rene-Charles told ET before getting a photo with BTS. “I don’t know [if my mom likes them], I’ll have to ask her. I’m pretty sure she does though, she keeps up with new music.”

According to E! News, the group’s hip-hop/R&B infused music have helped them earn 9.7 million followers on two Twitter accounts alone. And in four years time, the boy band has already released a handful of EPs including two Japanese albums and three Korean albums.

The group has no plans to release music in English, but they have previously performed in the United States including sold-out arena dates in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City.
