Korean idols BEAST celebrated their first win on a televised music show with their latest song “Soom” over the weekend.
The six-member boy band, who gave their comeback performance just last week, beat out girl group 2NE1 on KBS’ Friday music program “Music Bank” with their title track “Soom” from their third mini-album “Mastermind.”
“We want to return this honor to the people at our agency who have always been working hard for us and our families,” the members of BEAST said in their acceptance speech.
BEAST, who made their debut in October 2009, is well-known for their hit songs “Bad Girl,” “Shock” and “Easy.” They have been promoting their new album and title track since its release on September 30.
Meanwhile, SBS’ music show “Inkigayo” did not air due to Korean baseball playoffs.
