SEOUL, Jan. 12 (Aju News) -- Boy band BTS demonstrated its global popularity at South Korea's most prestigious music awards, winning two grand prizes.

The seven-member group was awarded the Album of the Year and the Best Artist at the Golden Disk Awards on Thursday. "Love Yourself: Her" was chosen as the best album of 2017 and the boys were selected as the best artists.

BTS has seen a skyrocketing increase in its international popularity last year, creating the so-called "BTS fever" that spread to North and South America as well as Europe. "MIC Drop", the group's latest song featuring popular DJ Steve Aoki, was ranked the 66th in the Billboard's Hot 100 Chart.
