BTS has already secured three trophies: "Top Duo/Group," "Top Song Sales Artist" and "Top Social Artist" in some category pre-awardings held through Instagram live broadcasts ahead of the main ceremony.
In the Top Song Sales Artist category, which first entered this year's candidate along with the Top Selling Song, he won the trophy against prominent stars such as Justin Bieber, Meghan the Stallian, Morgan Wallen, and Weekend.
In the Top Social Artist category, which reflects online influence, it has continued to win awards for five consecutive years since 2017.
Although BTS had two previous wins (2019) at the Billboard Music Awards, it swept all four nominations this year, setting its own record for most awards.
BTS entered the Billboard Music Awards for the first time in 2017 by receiving the "Top Social Artist" award based on its influence on social media. Since then, it has been revealed that it has been expanding its position in the pop market.
In particular, the hit song "Dynamite" released last year showed unrivaled music sales, becoming the first driving force to enter the Top Selling Song and Top Song Sales Artist categories.
In the case of the new "Top Selling Song" in 2016, hit songs such as Adele, Justin Timberlake, Louis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 and Cardi Bee were awarded.
Billboard Music Awards, one of the top three music awards in the United States along with "American Music Awards" and "Grammy Awards," are characterized by awards based on the Billboard chart.
This year's award ceremony reflected the chart from March 21 last year to April 3 this year.
