BTS, the first K-pop singer, nominated for Grammy, failed to win the award. But the members thanked ARMYs from the bottom of their hearts.

On the morning of the 15th, BTS’s Jin and J-Hope wrote a short post titled “ARMY, I love you” on their official fan community Weverse and expressed their sincerest gratitude. Suga also commented, “Let’s work harder this year!”

RM posted a selfie and a short message, “Watch out for the performance!” on BTS’s official Twitter, raising expectations for their solo Grammy performance.

Earlier in the day, the 63rd Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony was held at 4 am KST and was broadcast via YouTube live streaming. And the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, which BTS was nominated for, went to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.

BTS competed with Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande’s “Rain on Me”; J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny & Tainy’s “Un Dia (One Day)”; Justin Bieber & Quavo’s “Intentions”; Tayloe Swift & Bon Iver’s “Exile.” Despite the formidable list, fans had high hopes for the seven-member group to win their first Grammy, but the walls were still too high.

Although they might have won the award, BTS left a significant mark in pop music history as a Korean and Asian pop singer.

After the Grammy, BTS’s next move will be a brand new album. “Members are writing their own songs, and we are also having meetings and preparing hard for the songs that we will do as a group,” Jin said in a recent interview. “Please look forward to the new things that will come out in the future.”
