BTS wins Album Of The Year at the 35th Golden Disc Awards for the 4th Year in a row

For the fourth year in a row, BTS won the Album of the Year (Daesang) at the 35th Golden Disc Awards. Additionally, the group also won the Digital Daesang (which they also won the previous year), making them the first artists in history to win five Daesangs from the Golden Disc Awards. They also took home the Bonsang in the Digital Song and Album divisions, as well as the Curaprox Golden Disc Most Popular Artist Award.

In their speech for the Bonsang in the Album Division, the BTS members looked back on the first time they won a Bonsang, with Jimin and V taking the opportunity to speak about their wish to perform “ON” in front of ARMY, in person.

SUGA, who had been absent from most of BTS’s end-of-year activities due to the recovery from a shoulder surgery, mentioned in his speech that “Even as the music and concert industries stagnate due to COVID-19, I am honored and grateful that people showed so much love for our album. In essence, we were able to promote our album, but we weren’t able to hold concerts. I hope that the time will arrive when we can perform our album ‘[Map of the Soul:] 7’ at a concert.”

During the speech, J-Hope also mentioned: “I think there’s a deep sorrow that we weren’t able to show our performances in person. I really want to show them when the situation improves.” V also mentioned how hard it is to speak without seeing their fans in the audience, while also saying that he loves ARMY by expressing his gratitude for giving the group “endless love and this amazing award.”

RM concluded by saying: “As we have received such a big award, we will return with more good music and performances this year.”
