Global K-pop stars BTS on Sunday won the top prize in the album sales category at a prestigious annual music awards ceremony in South Korea.

BTS took home six prizes, including the top award, at the 33rd Golden Disk Awards, which recognize accomplishments in the K-pop industry.

"We accept the awards on behalf of all Armies," group leader RM said at the awards ceremony held in Seoul's Gocheok Sky Dome, referring to BTS fans.

"2018 was the year that we bore fruits through our hard work," he added.

The septet received the top award for the second straight year.

The winners of the 33rd Golden Disk Awards were selected based on album sales and digital streams recorded between December 2017 and November 2018.

A total of 10 artists, including BTS, boy group EXO and Jonghyun, late singer of boy band SHINee, received prominent prizes.

"Thank you to the fan club SHINee World's support on behalf of Jonghyun," Minho of the group said.
