The Korean Music Awards ( Korean한국대중음악상; lit. Korean Popular Music Awards) is an annual South Korean music awards show that honors both mainstream and underground musical artists from a variety of genres. [1] Unlike other major South Korean music awards, which largely rely on record sales to determine winners, the Korean Music Awards distributes awards based on the recommendations of a panel of judges consisting of music critics, radio show producers, academics, and other professionals within the industry. The first ceremony was held in 2004, [2] and is regarded as one of the most prestigious music awards in the country. [3] [4]

Kiha & The Faces is the only artist to win all three Grand Prizes (Musician, Album & Song of the Year.) The band is also the joint most decorated artist in KMA history with 7 awards, along with BTS.
7-time award winner BTS made history in 2019 by becoming the first artist to win Musician of the Year two years in a row. At the 18th Awards ceremony, they became the first artist to win Song of the Year twice.
