BTS to attend this year's Melon Music Awards ceremony
BTS will attend the annual year-end K-pop music awards ceremony Melon Music Awards (MMA), according to Kakao, which runs the Melon music streaming app, on Tuesday.
Started in 2005, the ceremony awards artists based on Melon's streaming data, votes and experts’ analysis. This year’s event will be held without an audience due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last year the group took home eight awards including four grand prizes — “Record of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” “Album of the Year” and “Artist of the Year.”
Meanwhile the group is planning to release a new album “BE (Deluxe Edition)” on Nov. 20, for which members are reported to have actively participated in creating the tracks.
