On Day 1 of the event, BTS won one of the top awards of the show - the Worldwide Icon of the Year - for the 6th year in a row. MAMA is one of the biggest music award shows for Asian artists, and BTS have been winning trophies every year, besides putting on iconic performances at the event.
This year, none of the BTS members were in Tokyo to attend the awards ceremony. However, the global stars did win one of the top awards at the event. Jungkook appeared at the awards show via video, delivering the acceptance speech. It was indeed a proud moment for BTS ARMYs to see the youngest member of BTS accept the honour on behalf of the group.
While BTS and Jungkook himself have been clinching big awards, the Golden Maknae has been flying in and out of South Korea. On Wednesday, a day after returning from an overseas schedule with Jimin, Jungkook flew out again for more work. Fans shared glimpses of him from the Incheon airport, praising the K-pop star for his hard work and also staying humble despite his busy schedule.
Very soon, Jungkook, along with three other BTS members - Jimin, V and RM - will leave behind their global star lives to enlist in the South Korean military. Reports say all four of them will begin their mandatory military service by mid-December. A sad moment for BTS ARMYs, who will have to wait for one and an half years to see all seven BTS members together.
