[NEWS] BIGBANG Wins 3 Awards at Korean Music Awards
BIGBANG won three awards.
The 13th Korean Music Awards took place at the Guro Arts Valley Theatre on February 29. The event was broadcasted live on the website of EBS’s Space Sympathy.
BIGBANG won the Song of the Year Award with their hit song “BAE BAE”. It was their third award at the event following the Best Pop Award and the Group Musician of the Year Netizen Vote. BIGBANG was not able to make it to the ceremony. Instead Director Park Heon-pyo of YG Entertainment received the awards for them, and for the acceptance speech, he said, “Ten years have passed since BIGBANG’s debut. BIGBANG would like to thank the fans for their love, Mr. YANG HUN SUK and Mr. YANG MIN SUK for their support and the staff for their hard work.”
He went on to say, “BIGBANG has finished their world tour and are making preparations for their concert.”
Meanwhile, the Korean Music Awards, which has been held for the 13th time this year, is an award that focuses on albums and songs, rather than singers, and acknowledges achievements made in the music industry rather than the amount of sales. Its goal is to achieve a balanced progress of the Korean music industry, both underground and mainstream.
