U-KISS and their longtime fans rejoiced after the group received their first-ever music show award on The Show, a music television program aired by SBS MTV, whose chart rankings is computed through K-Pop fans in Korea and China.

U-KISS won during a China special taped last month and aired on March 3, beating tough competitors like 4Minute and Infinite H.

The victory proved extra special for U-KISS as the group has spent the past eight years promoting in the K-pop scene without scoring a music show award.

In a thank you message during the broadcast, Leader Soohyun was reported as saying, "It is very touching to win first place for the first time since our debut eight years ago. I am very grateful to our hard-working members, and thank you so much to our fans, who always support us. We will go anywhere in the world to present our loving fans with good music and performances, so please show us a lot of support," according to a translation from Soompi.

U-KISS member Kevin could barely contain his excitement, posting a group shot with the trophy on Instagram along with this message addressing KISSMEs or UKISS fans:

"KISSME!Can't believe this day has finally arrived! We were all shocked but also very thrilled at the same time when we first heard the news. Thank you for never giving up and ALWAYS being by our side! This award goes out to fans and everyone who believed in us. WE LOVE YOU!"

U-KISS can thank its devoted fan base for pushing the group to victory. The show's weekly award factors in 30% for live voting of fans, with the rest of the score garnered through a combination of album sales, digital sales, SNS, and other tallied factors.

Fans might also attribute this latest milestone to the arrival of new U-KISS member Joon who joined in 2014 and had filled in quite nicely for the group as a replacement for past member Dongho and temporary hiatus of member AJ.
