First of all, ARMYs from Korea and all over the world, our fans, we appreciate and love you guys the most. We have only debuted for 3 years yet we are able to receive such a big award. I think it’s all thanks to many seniors who have paved the way for us. We know this is an amazing award that help introducing Korea pop culture to the world, as well as globalizing K-pop. We will constantly work hard to become better singers, better K-pop singers. Thank you.
