BTS won big at the 30th Seoul Music Awards as was predicted from the Grammy-nominated K-pop group, but BTS ARMY is wondering why the biggest K-pop group did not attend the award show. From ‘busy with Grammys’ to 'are they planning a comeback?', BTS ARMY speculated a number of reasons for their absence at the SMA. The septet appeared through a recorded video to thank ARMY for constantly supporting the group.

Along with winning the main award called the Bonsang award at the 30th SMA, BTS also won the best song award, Best Album title and WhosFandom Award. While accepting the Best Song award, BTS leader RM aka Namjoon said, “Hello everyone, at this time at the Seoul Music Awards we're getting the award for best song!” to which Jungkook said, “We heard that this award can be given because seeing the most love.” The 23-year-old BTS vocalist added, “So you believe that you can get this award because many people listen to and like our music. Therefore in the future we will work even harder... Thank you.” Taehyung aka BTS V chimed in saying, “We hope that we can provide fun and a sense of comfort through our music and that we can receive such a big award also makes us feel very happy. In the future we will work hard to be able to perform better music in the future .. Thank you.”
