BTS has become the first K-Pop artist to be awarded at a Spanish award ceremony!
At The Hall of Stars Awards 2018, BTS won awards for the “World Category” and “Spain Category”.
The “World Category” is selected by votes from international fans excluding those from Spain, and the “Spain Category” is selected by votes from fans from Spain alone.
That means BTS had the most votes from fans from all around the world!
What’s more is that Spanish A.R.M.Ys have fallen in love with the talented artist group despite the fact that BTS has never even officially made a debut or held a performance in Spain.
Many fans are hoping that BTS would officially begin promoting in Spain with this opportunity.
Spanish model and singer Manurios confirmed BTS’s popularity in Spain by telling his live broadcast audience that he doesn’t listen to K-Pop very much except for BTS.
Meanwhile, BTS’s agency BigHit Entertainment has expressed their thoughts on winning the awards.
“Although we didn’t receive any official information, we know that fans were participating in the votes. We are thankful that we were able to win these awards thanks to the fans.” ㅡ Big Hit Entertainment
With the release of their new album, their comeback stage at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and then the start of their world tour, fans have a lot to look forward to!
