TMA Idol Plus Popularity Award

BTS’s solo endeavors have marked an incredibly successful phase in the group’s illustrious 10-year journey. The Fact Music Awards (TMA) is highly regarded in the K-pop industry, awarded to the idol who garners the most fan support through votes cast via the Fan N Star application. Jimin clinched the Idol Plus Popularity Award on October 4 with a record-breaking 624,353 votes, constituting 36% of the total votes cast. This accolade is particularly significant as all previous winners in this category have been groups, including BTS and Super Junior. Jimin’s monumental achievement led to a worldwide celebration among fans, resulting in numerous hashtags trending globally on social media platforms.
