Four out of four: BTS win big at Billboard Music Awards 2021 Updated: 2021-05-24 08:53:09 KST

The 28th Billboard Music Awards started in Los Angeles around an hour ago and K-pop boyband BTS have been the stealing the spotlight by landing prizes for all of their nominations.
To tell you more, our Kim Yeon-seung is on the line.
Yeon-seung, tell us more about this exciting moment for not only BTS but for their millions of fans worldwide.

Jeong-min, K-pop sensations BTS just don't let their fans down.
They have been named winners in all four categories they were nominated for at the Billboard Music Awards.
Their latest win is the top selling artist for their song "Dynamite", released last summer.
"Dynamite" was also nominated for a grammy award back in 2020, but unfortunately fell short of bagging a win, but this moment certainly makes up for it.
For their acceptance speech, the leader of the group RM said that they were honored to be the winners of such a significant title.
A few hours ahead of the ceremony, Matthew Hoffman, the off-air host of the BBMAs, revealed the winners of over 30 categories at 1 p.m. on Sunday, local time and BTS were announced the winners of three categories, top song sales Artist, top duo/ group, and top Social artist.
Perhaps the most notable win from BTS is the top social artist, a prize they're bringing home for the fifth consecutive year.
This year, BTS won by a landslide with over 100 million votes, miles ahead of second-place Justin Bieber who had around 12 million votes.
Coming up is BTS's first stage performance of their newly released song "Butter."/ At the BBMA, BTS also stole the show with their first stage performance of "Butter."
That's all I have for now, but the award ceremony will continue for another hour or so, so I'll be back at a later time with updates.
Back to you, Jeong-min
