On November 16, Naver’s V Live held its first-ever official award ceremony V HEARTBEAT!
The brand-new awards show, which took place at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, featured a star-studded lineup of artists that included GOT7, MONSTA X, MAMAMOO, members of NCT, Stray Kids, ITZY, TXT, AB6IX, CIX, and several non-Korean artists including English singer Anne-Marie.
Although BTS was unable to attend the ceremony, the group managed to snag two trophies: not only did they win a V Live Global Artist Top 12 award, but they also received The Most Loved Artist Award, which was decided by fan votes (with the 12 recipients of the Top 12 awards as nominees).
MONSTA X also went home with two trophies, snagging both a V Live Global Artist Top 12 award and a V Live Global Partnership award.
