For the first time in the award show’s history, they have introduced a new K-Pop category! Previously, K-Pop groups were nominated for awards alongside other international artists, without having a specific category dedicated to them.

The nominees for this year’s “Favorite K-Pop Artist” award include BLACKPINK, BTS, SEVENTEEN, TXT, and TWICE!
