2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards: BTS walk away with big honours

The awards show adopted 2020’s theme as ‘new-topia’, a sort of nod to the incredulous year we’ve had and the transition of Korean Pop Music (K-pop) into a globally leading genre.

The Beatles of K-pop walked away with five honours on the night, scooping up the coveted Album of the Year with their top-charting Map of the Soul: 7; Best Dance Performance Male Group; and Best Male Group.

Electric performances from the likes of Seventeen, Monsta X and Treasure made the virtual event a treat to watch.
