BTS was honored to receive MAMA Platinum Award which is a new category for artists who have won all four Daesangs (awards) at once for MAMA. BTS won “Artist of the Year”,Song of the Year” and “Worldwide Icon of the Year” in 2019 and didn’t stop. And then during the acceptance speech for BTS’s 2022 MAMA Platinum award j-hope made a surprise phone call to Jin so he could share this moment with him & the ARMYs at MAMA as well. After gathering his thoughts Jin greeted everyone & shared with his additional thoughts making j-hope have an emotional moment

Five years ago MAMA had to create the “Worldwide Icon” Daesang to capture the scope of what BTS was doing on a global level and this year they had to create the Platinum award because BTS kept sweeping their Daesangs. There is no one else on BTS’ level and there never will be. BTS extended their record as the most winner of “Artist of The Year” (Daesang) at MAMA Awards for 7 consecutive years (2016-2022)!!

BTS first ever Daesang at the Melon Music Awards (MMA) 2016
