The meteoric rise of K-pop band BTS continued over the weekend as the band took home the Artist of the Year Award at the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards. The award marked the "DNA" singers' third win at this year's ceremony, tying fellow K-pop acts EXO and Wanna One for most wins at the 2017 event. They also took home Best Music Video for "Spring Day" and Best Asian Style in Hong Kong.
BTS also performed at the Hong Kong leg of the four-part ceremony. The group sang their hit songs "BTS Cypher Pt. 4" and "Mic Drop," the latter of which is featured on their latest EP Love Yourself: Her. Check out the complete performance above.
2017's Mnet Asian Music Awards were held in three separate locations over a week-long affair, marking the first time the ceremony was held across three countries. It began in Vietnam on Nov. 25 and landed in Japan for its second leg on Nov. 29. The MAMA Professional Categories were held in Hong Kong on Nov. 30 before the awards show wrapped at Asia-World Expo on Dec. 1.
BTS cap a monumental 2017 that saw them continue their success in South Korea and break into the American pop culture scene. The group made the rounds across American television last month, becoming the first K-pop band to perform at the American Music Awards alongside performances on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Ellen" and "The Late Late Show with James Corden." They'll put a bow on the year with a performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2018.
