Fans Ecstatic As Kim Taehyung Earns A Solo Daesang MAMA Nomination Without Solo Debut

Kim Taehyung, AKA V of the popular boy group BTS, has secured a solo nomination at the most prestigious Korean music award function – MAMA – in a main or major category. Taehyung achieved this feat with his OST for the Korean drama titled Our Beloved Summer. The song – Christmas Tree – has earned two nominations at this year’s MAMAs or Mnet Asian Music Awards. The OST has been nominated under the following categories: Best OST & Song of The Year (DAESANG). A daesang is a pretty big deal in K-pop. It is the highest honor a Korean artist can earn at a Korean award show. It is also known as the Grand Prize.

The daesang nomination for Taehyung is extra special because the vocalist is yet to make an official debut as a solo artist or release a studio album. The singer has only released three OSTs on his Spotify profile and was still able to amass 10 million followers, to become one of the most followed Korean acts on the platform.

Ever since its release, Christmas Tree has witnessed great success. It was the first Korean OST to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has collected 175 million streams on Spotify so far.
