As December approaches, it is time for one of the major events in K-Pop, the annual Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMAs). After the announcement of the nominees for each voting category, fans have already begun creating voting guides to help their favorite artists win.
But BTS ARMY, in particular, have taken to Twitter to laugh about their predicament as the members of BTS are “against” each other in multiple categories. While categories like Best Male Artist and Best Male Group won’t be as tricky for ARMY to decide who to vote for, the Best OST and Best Collaboration awards are more difficult.
Best OST features V‘s “Christmas Tree” from the K-Drama Our Beloved Summer and Jimin and Ha Sung Woon‘s “With You” from the K-Drama Our Blues.
Best Collaboration includes Crush and J-Hope‘s “Rush Hour” and PSY and Suga‘s “That That.”
While ARMY are obviously proud of BTS’s success…
MAMA nominations for bts, hobi, yoongi, taehyung and jimin like when we say it’s bts vs bts they’re going to take over charts and award shows the seven of them and as a group I SMILE

And some ARMY are pointing out that with BTS all releasing solo music, future award shows will likely be very similar.
i actually think the next 3-4 years are gonna look like this as well https://t.co/9eIutcqTiC

We probably should try to get used to seeing BTS vs BTS at this point cuz as Bangtan releases more solo member work in the future, next year it might be 7 vs 7 😅…

But even though ARMY are joking about BTS competing with one another, fans are pointing out that they know exactly how BTS would react.
i know for sure jimin would want tae to win and tae wants jimin to win so the best solution is giving both of them the award

Crazy thing is regardless of which bts member win they will all be happy as hell lol. I just want to see them act like security for Hobi, Yoongi, tae and Jimin tho
