Bangtan Sonyeondan, along with K-Pop groups such as Super Junior, MONSTA X, Red Velvet, TWICE, and MAMAMOO, was supposed to perform at the second annual The Fact Music Awards last February at the Gocheok Sky Dome. However, the physical ceremony was canceled due to the sudden occurrence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The announcement of winners was then moved to March and was done online, in which BTS received a total of four awards like the previous year.
This year, BTS’s awards include the Daesang (grand prize), an Artist of the Year award, TMA Popularity Award, and the Listener’s Choice Award. Super Junior also claimed four achievements this year, such as the Worldwide Icon, Artist of the Year, Fan N Star Most Votes Award (Artist), and Fan N Star Choice Award (Artist).
The other groups and solo artists that took home one or two trophies are TWICE, Red Velvet, MAMAMOO, Chungha, NU’EST, MONSTA X, IZ, N.Flying, Stray Kids, The Boyz, TXT, (G)I-DLE, ITZY, Kang Daniel, and Yang Joon II.
With regard to the third annual The Fact Music Awards, the organizing committee announced on September 21 that the event will happen in an ‘ontact’ [a catchphrase that means online and contact-free] manner. This is to ensure the safety of not only the artists but also their fans. It is also revealed that the show will be conducted in December, which is earlier than the preceding years.
Furthermore, the committee sees the new ‘ontact’ format as a chance to showcase a broad range of breathtaking performances this year. A representative of the committee stated, “In keeping with the current ‘ontact’ era, this year’s ceremony will be a new kind of K-Pop festival that is unlike the typical year-end music award shows of the past.” The rep also added that strict checks and inspections will be done to guarantee a trouble-free and excellent show. Also, an array of special events are created for the fans.
The awards for this year’s The Fact Music Awards will be determined through combining objective data, including the results in album sales and songs’ digital, as well as the evaluation of a panel of judges. And like many of the awards show, fans all over the world get to vote for their favorite artists through official sites like Fan N Star.
