Hey guys, it's K-Star Talk.

BTS took home the night's top prize at the 2019 Melon Music Awards (MMAs). The group swept all four grand prizes: Best Record of the Year, Best Alum of the Year, Best Song of the Year, and Artist of the Year.  Other than these, they received awards for the categories, Top 10 of the Year, Netizen Popularity, and Best Male Dance and Kakao Hot Star Award. First, let’s watch the video of the Netizen Popularity acceptance speech V has given.

You can watch and listen to the whole acceptance speech in Korean and try to understand the video. If possible, try to write down what V said on a paper.

We are going to examine the speech sentence by sentence. The sentence is repeated three times as usual.
