Throughout the night, the boys won the awards for Mwave Global Choice, Best Asian Style, TikTok Best Music Video for “IDOL,” and Album of the Year for Love Yourself: Tear. But it was when the boys hit the stage to accept the last award of the night, the daesang (“grand prize”) for Artist of the Year, when things got truly emotional. At the event, BTS give their speak one by one.
First, J-hope stepped up first and said, “ARMY, I worried a lot before coming here. I want to show you our best all the time without any mistakes so we always prepare the stage with worried hearts. This award. I would’ve cried today no matter if we won this award or not. I wanted to repay because we worked so hard and received so much love from you guys. Thank you so so much and I want to say thanks to the members who are together with me at this moment. Thank you. I love you.”
Next, Jimin said, “ARMY, thank you. Over the year, there could’ve been many hard times you had know. We times where we got together and had discussions. What we felt is that we have so many people around us. So we want to thank you guys for always giving us encouragement. We really wanted to receive this award here again. Your pride in us is our pride. We will show a better side of us next year and show you guys this award again.”
V continued, “Mom and dad who are watching this, thank you for taking care of me. This award is unbelievable and I will become a hardworking singer who isn’t an embarrassment to this award. We receive so many amazing awards at the end of the year. ARMY is such a meaningful gift. Thank you so much and I love you.”
SUGA next said, “Thank you ARMYs. I’m happy to be receiving the ‘Artist of the Year.’ ARMY’s who are always watching us, I will consider this an award by you and will work hard. I want to thank our families who gave birth to the 7 brothers. 2018 was a year that made me wonder if I could be this happy in my life. I will make 2019 an even more amazing year.”
RM said, “When we came out of his studio, we laughed a lot. We thought, ‘He must be going through a hard time lately.’ People around him also tried to stop him; they thought that such a great composer was putting an end to his career. Yet he believed in us so much when we had nothing, and I want to give this honor to him. We love you and respect you, and we’ll continue to work hard together with you.”
The youngest members also stepped up and give his speech. Jungkook said, “We worked hard to prepare our performances while thinking about ARMY. We’ve received the Album of the Year award today. We really just wanted to become artists that you can be proud of, and it’s the same way now.” He shared that he wants to be a source of comfort and strength for everyone, and added, “In our hearts, ARMY is forever No. 1. Thank you so much, we love you.”
Lastly, Jin said, “I remember early this year. We were mentally struggling at the beginning of the year. While talking amongst ourselves, we even considered disbanding. I think it’s so fortunate that we got ourselves together and was able to bring good outcomes. I want to thank my members who helped me get myself together and the ARMYs who love us.”
After Jin’s speech, the members heavily sobbed, especially V. It could be seen that actually BTS struggle for years to hold tight their dream to be a the best K-pop idols and they have make it and will go on forward. Good job BTS!

BTS’ V Crying at Wings Tour
During BTS‘s 2017 Wings tour, Jin and V had a pre-show argument that left both members nearly too emotional to perform. The fight was included in episode 4 of Burn the Stage, BTS’s candid, behind the scenes documentary.
RM said that the gap between him and Jungkook was too large. V realized that to fill this gap, he would need to move from his current stage position to position “two”. In order to get himself to his place on time, V told Jin that he would need to pick up the pace to get to position “one”.
V suggested that Jin run faster to get to his mark, since V can only start running once Jin does. In reply, Jin said that he was already running as fast as he could. When V refused to drop the subject, Jin became frustrated. Jin demanded to know why V kept complaining when he was already doing his best.
As BTS’s leader, RM told V and Jin to get their acts together because the problem wasn’t one that could be solved before the show. After RM intervened, Jin was quick to apologize and comfort V, who was on the brink of tears. Meanwhile, all BTS burst into tears and sobbed in their final speech during the concert. They wrapped the last Wings Tour with warm and happy ending together with their beloved fans, ARMY.
The finale show in Seoul brought a crowd of excited fans at home and from abroad to the stadium area since hours prior to the concert, making the concert venue a scene of a global festival early on.
BTS’ V Crying on Bon Voyage
During Bon Voyage Season 3 Episode 6, Jimin helped V get through an emotional moment in a very touching way. Shortly before filming began for Season 3 of BTS‘s travel-reality show, V’s grandfather passed away. As such, V did not join his members for their Malta vacation until shortly after his grandfather’s funeral. Although it’s not clear if it was his paternal or maternal side, but he was raised by his Grandmother until he was 15. His grandparents must have meant a great deal to him.
As soon as Jimin and J-Hope realized V was crying, they immediately stopped what they were doing to check on him. When they found him sitting alone, in tears, J-Hope sat beside V while Jimin hugged V from behind.
In other episodes V was crying again because his letters that he wrote to his fellow member and also his best friend in the group (because they were in the same age).
The members wrote handwritten letters to one another and V had written his for Jimin. However, while he began to reflect on their humble beginnings and read the letter to him, V began to cry!
The letter had said, “Jimin-ah, hello~ Writing you this sincere letter is making me cringe but I am trying to go on. Please understand. Since our trainee days, we came to Seoul without a clue.We woke up, put on school uniforms and attended the same school. We ate together, went to practice and returned to the dorm.
Then we talked at night.”
The letter was already built up an interesting atmosphere for fans as V began to wipe away his tears.
“After 6 years like that, you are now my dearest friend. Before our debut, you once got anxious about it. At the time, I had a meeting with the company and they asked me what I thought of you being on the team. I thought it over and said that you were there for me through the ups and downs, you were the one who laughed and cried with me,” said V.
He continued, “So I said that it would be good if such a good friend could debut with me. It felt good to say that and I was happy to be able to debut with you. All our good memories made me happy and I am sorry that I am always on the receiving end.” This is when every watching probably began to cry, too!
V finished his letter saying, “When I am in the bathroom crying, you cry with me. You also come to see me at dawn to laugh with me. You care about me and have me in your thoughts. You work hard for me and you understand me. You listen to my concerns and like me even though I am lacking. Let’s walk on a road with happiness. I love you, buddy.” Such tear-jerking words!
Member Jimin laughed and responded by saying, “I think about that a lot so stop crying, you punk!” Their brotherly love is too cute. Keep supporting each other BTS!
