The “Best K-Pop” category was first introduced in 2019 and was under fire for allegations of discrimination against Korean acts, as fans noticed BTS was not nominated for the main categories despite high commercial success. This year, however, BTS is nominated for 7 other categories, including “Song of the Year,” and they have won “Group of the Year.”
