K-pop appears to be on its way to becoming a global phenomenon. More award shows are recognizing the effect of K-pop after many groups were nominated for MTV VMAs and EMAs.

BTS had previously announced that their English track, Butter had been nominated for the 2022 Grammys in the Best Pop Duo/Group Category. And now they’re causing a stir at the People’s Choice Awards (PCAs) in 2021.

People’s Choice Awards decided to start an award show that would look at the criterion that genuinely contributes to someone’s influence and renown, which is their followers; because award programmes are rigged to the judging panel being biased.

The American event honors performers in the entertainment industry by popular vote, i.e.; the winner is chosen by the people. With the Hallyu Wave sweeping the globe, it’s no surprise that K-pop groups such as BTS and K-dramas such as Squid Game are popular choices.

On December 7, 2021, at 9 p.m. ET, the People’s Choice Awards will be telecast. The 2021 PCAs will be broadcast on both NBC and the E! Network.

Squid Game The popular Korean drama is currently the most-watched Netflix show. It’s no surprise that Squid Game has been nominated for the 2021 PCAs, with it being considered for Emmys and other awards. It has been nominated in the category of The Bingeworthy Show of 2021.

TXT aka Tomorrow X Together TXT is the second boy group to be housed by HYBE LABELS after BTS. They’re creating ripples in the worldwide music industry, as well. Their album Freeze became Billboard’s longest-charting K-pop album in 2021. 

BTS Since BTS has been nominated for multiple awards, ARMY has been the busiest. The international K-pop group has been nominated for AAA, MTV EMAs, and PCAs in 2021. They’ve been nominated for the PCAs four times in three categories.
