SEOUL -- K-pop band BTS received two awards at the "2018 MTV Europe Music Awards" (EMA), hosted by global media company Viacom to honor artists in pop culture, held in Bilbao, Spain.

Big Hit Entertainment, the seven-member group's agency, said Monday that the boys were given the "Best Group" award and the "Biggest Fans" award at the Europe's iconic pop culture awarding event. BTS was not present the awards event.

Along with BTS, LOONA, a K-pop girl band, received an award for "Best Korean Act". The 12-member girl band officially debuted in August this year, but each member was revealed regularly through singles and teasers since 2016.
