BTS has once again created history for being the best k-pop band, both in their native land and internationally. The last episode of MBC’S Music Core Award Show was a win-win for BTS. It was the 21st win of their highly-acclaimed song, Boy With Luv. The song gained international recognition in initial days of release. “Boy with Luv” also features popular American singer, Halsey.
BTS garners repeated success
Even the members themselves never expected this level of success before. And no one, I say no one can argue with the fact that BTS has brought k-pop to global audience with their enriching talent.
BTS competed against Kim Na Young’s “To Be Honest” and Davichi’s “Unspoken Words” for the award. Meanwhile, Davichi stood at third with 4,178 points and Kim Na Young begged the second place with 5,287 points.

BTS won the title with 6,080 points. It was their ninth consecutive win on Music Core Award Show. Their winning reign started from May 22, 2019 and is still continuing. Even fans are reluctant to look beyond BTS.
Music Core Award Show: What makes the award night so special?
Coming back to the Music Core Award Show, the June 22 episode of MBC featured a long list of star celebrities. The show keeps talking about new music and pivotal talents at it’s gigs. Unlike our modern-day award shows that arrives in our sights, once in a blue moon. Music Core airs live every Saturday on MBC.

The night advanced with award facilitation while VIXX’s Leo, Lovelyz and WJSN gave some breakthrough performances. The craze of Music Core among Korean audience can be cracked through the fact that even the best bands cancel their tours for marking their presence in the show.
The award show has some benchmarks for deciding recipients of the esteemed awards. The Chart System decides winners on the basis of ;
60% of the Digital Sales and 10% of Music Video Views . However, the Physical Album combined with Viewers Committee Pre-voting (10%) and MBC Radio Broadcast (5%) escalates the final results.
