Six-member boy band 2PM won top honors at a music award ceremony in China on Monday.
JYP Entertainment announced in a press release Tuesday that 2PM, who were invited to represent Korea at the Mandarin Music Honors (MMH) hosted by China’s CCTV and MTV, won the title of “Most Popular Asian Artist.”
“We are thankful and we can’t believe that we won such an honor at a huge music festival like this. We will work harder to do our best and we want to thank all our fans who have supported us,” the members of 2PM said during their acceptance speech.
The members also took to the stage to perform their hit song “Heartbeat” and their latest release “I”ll Be Back.”
They will be returning to Korea today to continue promoting their mini-album “Still 2:00 PM” and title track “I’ll Be Back.”
MMH launched in 1999 and brings together the biggest names in the music industry from several Asian countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
