BLACKPINK Thanks Their “5th Member” In “2022 MAMA Awards” Video

The group won “Worldwide Fan’s Choice Award” and praised their “hidden member.”

Day one of the 2022 MAMA Awards (formerly known as the Mnet Asian Music Awards) is officially over. Although we have one more night of the annual awards show, there have already been many legendary moments that fans will remember for years.

During the first night of the ceremony, 17 awards were given out, including ten recipients of the “Worldwide Fan’s Choice Award.”

Among the recipients was the popular third-generation girl group BLACKPINK, who are currently traveling for their 45-show world tour, BORN PINK.

While they couldn’t be at the awards ceremony due to conflicting schedules, they pre-recorded a video to play after their “Worldwide Fan’s Choice Award” win was announced.

The video showed the members in the studio while they talked about their music and growth since their debut in 2016.

The video began by listing a few of the many incredible achievements the group has had over the last six years.

The video then introduces BLACKPINK’s main producer, Teddy, who was honored with a compilation of two of YG Entertainment‘s biggest groups, BIGBANG and 2NE1, praising Teddy in their awards speeches from previous MAMA Awards ceremonies.

Somi, a soloist under The Black Label, which Teddy co-founded, shared that he was the person who shaped her into an artist.

The BLACKPINK members echoed the sentiments, showing gratitude and crediting Teddy with their growth as artists and the root of their confidence with his ability to make them all feel comfortable in their careers as global K-Pop idols.

Teddy was so instrumental in crafting the group’s creative direction that Jisoo honored him as the “5th member” of BLACKPINK.

Teddy remained modest about the praise he received, reminding viewers what really made the group a global sensation, the talented members.
