Daesang – Artist of the Year Award
The grand prize award at the ceremony is the Daesang Award (Artist of the Year Award). Twelve top artists are first chosen based on album and digital sales and then the fans weigh in and vote for their favorite artist online. The judges have the final input as to who wins this prestigious award. In 2018 BTS was crowned with the Daesang award, taking the title away from the 4-time award winning Exo. Exo won this award four times in a row from 2014 to 2017. Other awards given at the Seoul Music Awards include:
- Bonsang Awards (Main Prize)

- Record of the Year in Digital Release
- New Artist Awards
- Performance Award
- Trot Award
- Hip Hop/Rap Award
- R&B/Ballad Award
- OST Award
- Popularity Awards
- Hallyu Special Award
Which K-Pop groups have won the most awards?
Taking into account Exo’s multiple Daesang Award wins four years in a row, amongst other category wins, EXO takes the icing on the cake for having won the most awards in total. As of 2018, they have won 16 awards. Super Junior, who also won a Daesand Award but in 2012, aren’t too far behind with a total of 13 awards to their name. Girl’s Generation follows closely with 12 and Shinee with 10 awards. Despite breaking records and making headlines throughtout 2018, BTS only has 9 awards. But will that change in the coming years?
