Big Bang, EXO top 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards.
Big Bang took home two major awards: Artist of the Year and the Song of the Year for "Bang Bang Bang." They also won the Best Music Video for "Bang Bang Bang" and iQiYi Worldwide Favorite Artist.
EXO grabbed the Album of the Year award for "EXODUS," Best Asian Style, Global Fans' Choice (Male) and Best Male Group.
"The five of us are going on 10 years together, and we've received a lot of awards, but I want to thank our family and fans who have always supported us," said T.O.P as Big Bang received the Song of the Year award, according to ENewsWord.
In accepting the Artist of the Year award, Taeyang said, "Thank you for such a big award. Like T.O.P Hyung said earlier, we will soon be going on 10 years, and we sang a lot of songs and a lot happened, but I want to thank the fans who always cheered us on."
Chanyeol said EXO had a happy year despite that there were hard times.
"Thanks to EXO-L we had a happy year. There were happy times and hard times, but they say the ground packs after the rain, and we will be a firm EXO. Thank you for always trusting and loving us," he said.
There were several surprises including the appearance of Park Bom who ended her more than a year hiatus by performing together with fellow 2NE1 members Dara, CL and Minzy.
