Fans and reporters were crowding the venue in Incheon hours before the red carpet officially began at 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

BTS is the creme de la creme of the superstars lined up for the event.

The seven-member act has swept the preshow voting, which showed a turnout of 30,652,692, conducted for a month from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31.

The boy band won the No.1 spot in seven categories, including boy group of the year, best-selling artist, and artist of the year -- the last of which is the highest honor of the night. The Billboard-topping single “Idol” won the group best dance of the year for male groups, “Fake Love” the best rap/hip-hop and “Love Yourself: Answer” the digital album.

The winner of each category is decided by a popular vote, expert analysis and music streaming data, among other factors.

A joint performance by BTS and US singer-songwriter Charlie Puth will be the headline event at MGA, one of the first year-end music awards of 2018.
