BTS have added another grand prize to their trophy case!
On August 23, NEWSIS is hosting K-EXPO, an event where awards are presented to businesses and icons who have made outstanding contributions to Hallyu culture (aka the Korean Wave). BTS received the first-ever “Hallyu Culture Daesang” (Seoul Mayor Award), but since they were unable to accept the award in person, they sent a video message.
The members humbly thanked the event’s attendees and those who selected BTS as the grand prize winners, along with Big Hit Entertainment‘s founder, Bang Si Hyuk, their staff, and each other.
They also expressed heartfelt gratitude to ARMY for their everlasting love and support, and to everyone who shares their love for K-Pop and Korean culture with the world.
BTS ended their speech by promising to work hard as cultural ambassadors who promote Hallyu. Check out the whole speech here:
