The 2023 Korean Music Awards ceremony was held today. NewJeans has achieved impressive results when becoming the only idol group to win at this year’s event.

The 2023 Korean Music Awards were held earlier today, and NewJeans enjoyed an incredible sweep by being the only idol group winning at this year’s event. They won not only one but three awards out of the six the group was nominated for.

The six nominations also made the young idol group the most nominated artist of the night! The categories were:

  • “Rookie Of The Year”
  • “Musician Of The Year”
  • “Album Of The Year”
  • “Song Of The Year”
  • “Best K-Pop Song”
  • “Best K-Pop Album”
  • NewJeans’ first award of the night came with “Attention” being crowned as “Best K-Pop Song.” It won over the all-female nominees: Red Velvet‘s “Feel My Rhythm,” LE SSERAFIM‘s “ANTIFRAGILE,” IVE‘s “Love Dive,” and (G)I-DLE‘s “Tomboy.”
  • Soon after, NewJeans were awarded their second of the night with “Best K-Pop Album.” The group’s first mini-album won over another all-female lineup: LE SSERAFIM‘s ANTIFRAGILE, (G)I-DLE‘s I Love and I NEVER DIE, and Taeyeon‘s INVU.
  • When nearing the end of the show, NewJeans won their third and final award of the night. The group was awarded “Rookie of the Year,” winning half their nominations and sweeping the K-Pop categories.

The members weren’t able to attend the show. However, they made sure to send a thank you video to the KMAs. The girls happily expressed their gratitude to the show for having awarded them three times.

Fans pointed out another amazing detail from this year’s event, with 250 winning the grand prizes: “Musician Of The Year” and “Album Of The Year.” The artist is known and loved by NewJeans fans as the leading producer of the group. Thus, fans considered his wins as a cause for celebration as well.
