Presently, EXO share the title of having the most Daesangs winnings at the Mnet Asian Music Awards with another renowned group, which is BIGBANG!
The Daesang awards have always been known as being announcements towards the end of the majority of Korean award ceremonies, which include the categories ‘Artist of the Year’, ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Song of the Year’. EXO won ‘Artist of the Year’ in 2014 and then ‘Album of the Year’ consecutively in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016!
