From BTS, BLACKPINK, to 4th Gen Groups, K-pop Artists Submitted Entries for the 66th Grammy Awards

Many K-pop stars have taken on the Grammy challenge this year 

The Grammys, which has been perceived as conservative and closed-minded, now sees many K-pop artists submitting their works for nomination, as evidence that K-pop has grown to this extent.

As BTS members have actively pursued solo activities over the past year, all seven members have submitted entries in various categories.

Notably, the members who have gained the most success as soloists this year are Jimin and Jungkook, who both achieved No.1 on Billboard Hot 100.

Jimin has submitted entries in Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Music Video, while Jungkook has submitted entries in Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Music Video.

Jimin and Jungkook are also competing in Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Many junior K-pop groups are trying to cross the Grammy threshold, not just BTS.

In the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category, where BTS has been nominated for three consecutive years, more K-pop stars have gathered than ever before, including FIFTY FIFTY, aespa, NCT Dream, Stray Kids, Tomorrow X Together (TXT), TWICE, BLACKPINK, NewJeans, ITZY, and IVE.
