The boys of BTS had bagged another win this week for their hit song 'Blood, Sweat and Tears'. On the October 21 episode of the South Korean music program Music Bank, BTS became the top contenders to win first place along with Kpop group Shinee and their comeback song '1 of 1'. It was a great episode featuring numerous artists like Sandeul, GOT7, MONSTA X, A Pink and more. However it was BTS's Blood, Sweat and Tears that took home the crown against Shinee with 10,985 points. This will be the third win for their track as it had also taken home first prize from music programs Show Champion and M Countdown.

However, it is definitely not a sad win for Shinee because as Allkpop had reported, they have already won last week's episode and in fact, the boy band had taken first prize from Music Bank a whopping 16 times! Imagine that. There definitely was no bad blood between the two and Shinee is in fact happy for the other group's victory, with Taemin going so far as to dance Jimin's dance on Blood Sweat and Tears.

This will be the fifth win for BTS in Music Bank. The whole episode was in Korean of course but according to Soompi, Jimin immediately expressed his gratitude to Bang Shi Hyuk, the people from Big Hit, all of the managers and the staff who had helped them and most importantly, the group's ARMY fans. V even gave a shout out to his granny. Sweet, isn't it?

BTS's win on this week episode Music Bank isn't actually all that surprising because they have been breaking multiple records all week including the highest charting Kpop album on Billboard, placing at no. 26 and dethroning girl group 2ne1's album Crush which placed no. 63. The boys have also dominated South Korea's neighboring countries like Thailand, Malaysia, China and Japan. Billboard even posted an article as to how BTS had broken a US Kpop chart record without any English songs.

The boys of BTS are definitely living the life. Check out their performance along with other artists on Music Bank below!
