As awards season kicks into top gear, the nominations for the 2017 Korean Popular Culture and Arts Awards were just released, and scoring a few big nods this year were none other than 3 of K-pop's hottest artists: BTSEXO, and TWICE!

Among this year's nominees, BTS scored a nod for the prestigious President's Award, making them one of just 2 artists in the running for the honour after the famous twin sister duo from the 1970s, Bunny Girls.

As for EXO and TWICE, both groups were nominated for the Prime Minister Award, which means that competition will be fierce in that category!

The awards ceremony is set to take place on November 3, so it won't be long before we find out if your faves will take home the trophy!
