BTS’s Jungkook Won A MIAW Award…But It Was All A Big Mix Up

It was a case of mistaken identity.

A case of mistaken identity is giving ARMYs a good laugh.


This year, BTS were nominated for several awards at The MTV Millennial Awards (MIAW), held on June 23. BTS won the “Explosion K-Pop” and “Instagrammer Global” awards…sort of.


For the “Instagrammer Global” award, Jungkook won out over a list of nominees that included Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Shawn Mendes, and Marshmallo, through a poll conducted on Instagram, Twitter, and the MIAW‘s official website. The thing is, Jungkook doesn’t have an Instagram account!


The account that won (@bts.jungkook) is actually a fan account that reposts photos and video clips Jungkook posts on Twitter. If a fan account can rack up over 6 million followers, just imagine how many the real Jungkook would have!


Congrats to Jungkook’s devoted fan for winning an award on his behalf!
