J-Hope went up on stage to receive all the awards, representing the group.

During his acceptance speech, J-Hope made a phone call to Jin. As translated by Instagram user parkjimin.bts.95, J-Hope said, "It would have been really really nice if the members could come up and express their gratitude as well, and it’s a shame they weren’t able to. Actually, I’ve prepared one thing. Jin said he had something he wanted to say so let me quickly call him."

After Jin received the call, J-Hope said, "I’m doing my award acceptance speech right now, but could you just say one thing? There are many fans who want to see you." Jin then said, "Hello everyone, it’s BTS Jin. I thank you so much for giving us an honorable award, and.. our army!! Our armys, thank you so so much and I love you. and our members, you've always worked hard. Our members, I love you so so much too."
