The music industry is very much likeable to competitive sports. Just like with any sport, artists and musicians battle it out in the form of music of course and those music that touches the people the most are surely the ones to stay on top. Those who fail to keep up, would of course be left behind, sometimes even forgotten. While those who make enough impact will be forever immortalized by the music industry.

It is true that the competition between k-pop idols is tight however, in most cases, these k-pop idols are also known to be quite supportive with one another and probably one of the recent examples of k-pop love is during the 2016 Melon Music Awards between EXO and BTS.

Well, as far as idols go, you can say that the relationship between BTS and EXO is quite good, even with the fact that they belong to different record labels, BTS being from Big Hit Entertainment while EXO belongs to SM Entertainment. During the Melon Music Awards, EXO was awarded "Artist of the Year", one of the biggest prizes of the night.

It is worth noting that when the group stood up to receive their award, BTS too had stood up in applause along with the rest of the other k-pop guests. However, when EXO was giving their speech, only BTS remained standing and only sat down once the group finished their speech, SBS Popasia reports. Now that is what you call humility and respect.

According to Allkpop, BTS had also received a major award that night with "Album of the Year" for their highly successful album "WINGS." EXO, apart from the Artist of the Year award, had also received four other awards that night.

EXO, had also made history that night because after receiving the Artist of the Year award, they automatically became the first group ever to win all three of the daesang awards in the history of Melon Music Awards. So the group definitely demanded respect and BTS saw to it that they receive that.

Other big winners of the night also include TWICE and BLACKPINK.
