They're the only two celebrities in the list of 12 winners for the 18th Proud Korean Awards. BTS has been awarded in the music category for artists who enhance the nation's prestige, and IU has been given the Donation Angel award for her charitable work.
It's been a big year for both artists, with BTS on their world tour and breaking global K-pop records, and IU celebrating her 10th debut anniversary with a series of concerts in Korea and overseas.
Congrats to BTS and IU!
