BTS has won the award for Album of the Year at the 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards (2019 MAMA).
The 2019 MAMA was held on the 4th at the Nagoya Dome in Japan. The nominees for Album of the Year included BLACKPINK, EXO, TWICE, BTS, and SEVENTEEN. Making a special appearance to announce the award winner was American comedian and TV host, Jimmy Fallon.
“Thank you so much for the daesang (grand award). I was a kid who only knew how to dance, so when I joined Big Hit and became a BTS member, I worked really hard to learn about music from my friends. I’ve worked hard to make my debut and make music for all of you. This award has a lot of meaning for myself and the other members of BTS. I’ll continue to study more so that I can make better music for all of you. We’ll work to always deliver positive messages and have a positive impact. Thank you so much,” said J-hope in his acceptance speech.
Next up was Jimin, who said, “First off, I’m so thankful to Jimmy Fallon for making a special appearance. We’re in the process of putting together an album right now, and I think it’s going to be much better than what you’re all expecting. Thank you, everyone.”
RM wrapped up the speech before everyone left the stage by shouting, “Thank you, Jimmy!”
