It’s official! ATEEZ have won their first international award: the MTV Europe Music Award for Best Korean Act.
(On the same day that they announced the European dates for their upcoming tour at that!)
The 2019 MTV EMAs will be held in Seville, Spain, on November 3 at 8 pm CET (featuring a performance by NCT 127), but the winners for some categories have been announced on their Instagram Stories prior to the actual show.
ATEEZ was nominated for Best Korean Act alongside fellow rookie groups AB6IX, CIX, ITZY, and IZ*ONE, ultimately taking home the win!
This award was previously won by K-pop giants like EXO (2013), BTS (2015), B.A.P (2014, 2016) and GFriend (2017); with another monster rookie – LOONA – becoming the recipient just last year.
Congratulations to ATEEZ and ATINY!
