This Is What K-Pop Band BTS Wore for Their First-Ever Billboard Music Awards

Tonight at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, BTS members Rap Monster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook took home the most fan-friendly prize — the Top Social Artist award.

This is the seven-member South Korean boy band’s first time attending the awards show. In fact, tonight marks their U.S. awards show red carpet debut.

Their name is the acronym for Korean term “Bangtan Sonyeondan,” meaning “bulletproof boy scouts” in English.  The guys, who have become global pop sensations over the past year, are also known as the Bangtan Boys.

The musicians, who are known for wearing similar looks on the red carpet, opted for mostly black ensembles for their first U.S. red carpet appearance.

While a few other artists went for classic suits, BTS chose to mix things up with a jacket over a simple jeans-and-T-shirt look.

The show airs tonight live from Las Vegas at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
