Forbes, a leading U.S. economic magazine, has spotlighted BTS's Jungkook for making history as the first K-pop solo musician to achieve this at the 'MTV VMA' (2023 MTV Video Music Awards).
Forbes reported on Jungkook's win in the "Song of Summer" category for "Seven" at the 'MTV VMA,' stating that "Jungkook made history at the MTV VMA, joining forces with BLACKPINK's Lisa." They shared the news of his victory with the headline, "BTS's Jungkook 'MTV VMA' Writes History as the First K-pop Solo Musician."
They went on to emphasize that Jungkook's win marked an historic moment as the second Korean solo artist to win a 'VMA' after BLACKPINK's Lisa, who won in the "Best K-Pop" category in 2022, and the first male solo artist to achieve this honor.
Forbes particularly highlighted the significance of Jungkook's win by pointing out that Lisa's award was specific to the "Best K-Pop" category, whereas Jungkook's victory came after competing against pop stars like Olivia Rodrigo, Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, and Taylor Swift, cutting across various genres.
