K-Pop idol group SEVENTEEN have gained much spotlight from international media after receiving three nominations for the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA). Recently, MTV posted an article with the title, To The Moon: Get To Know The 2022 VMA Best New Artist Nominees.
South Korean boy band Seventeen is known for being heavily involved in self-producing the majority of their work, especially in songwriting, choreography, and performing.
Back in 2015, when they debuted with their EP 17 Carat, it became the longest-charting K-pop album of the year in the U.S. Dubbed “Performance Kings” and the “K-Pop Performance Powerhouse” by Korean outlets, they went on to produce four studio albums and 12 EPs, and released their most recent studio album, Face the Sun, in May 2022 and a repackaged version of the album Sector 17 in July.
They also became the first-ever K-pop act to land an MTV PUSH feature back in 2021. These performance kings are hoping to add yet another milestone to their impressive résumé, and a Best New Artist win would be just that.
SEVENTEEN has been nominated in three categories: Best New Artist, PUSH Performance Of The Year, and Best K-Pop. The VMAs will take place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on August 28.
