BTS has done it again, this time snatching three prizes at the 2021 People's Choice Awards.
In Santa Monica on Tuesday local time, the K-Pop superstars won Group of 2021 and the awards for song and music video of 2021 for its megahit "Butter."
The Group of 2021 Award is particularly meaningful in that BTS beat other big global artists, including Coldplay, Dan + Shay and Maroon 5.
Thanking its fans, the boyband said through its agency Big Hit Music that the members are happy because the awards mean that their efforts are being recognized.
Last year, BTS swept four titles group, song, album and music video of the year at the annual ceremony.
In fact, the K-Pop stars have been on a roll, becoming the first Asian act to take home the Artist of the Year Award at this year's American Music Awards.
Its second English-language song "Butter" has been particularly good to the group staying atop the Billboard Hot 100 main singles chart for ten straight weeks AND last week earned the acolade of Record of the Year by American entertainment magazine Variety.
More good news for K-culture Netflix's "Squid Game" bagged the Bingeworthy Show of 2021 Award, beating six other shows, including "Loki," "Ted Lasso," and "The White Lotus."
It's already the show's second international award after winning a 2021 Gotham Award just last month.
The K-drama continues to prove its quality and popularity, being nominated in three categories at the Critic's Choice Awards selected by the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
