The wins clearly show the increasing popularity of K-pop in international territories with the two categories having multiple entrants from Korea. In the International Artist category, Super Junior was up against label mate Girls’ Generation, YG Entertainment’s 2NE1, One Direction, Little Mix, and Australian act 5 Seconds of Summer. For the Choice Fandom award Super Junior’s ELF’s went up against the fans of 5 Seconds of Summer, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato and One Direction to come out on top.

 

The group were not in attendance to accept the award which aired on Sunday on Fox, and the international awards were not broadcast on television.
The news of Super Junior’s awards came as K-pop is gaining momentum on American online polls. K-pop girl group T-ara fans are in the midst of a heated war with Beyonce’s Beyhive fans in a battle for the title in Billboard’s Fan Army Face-off 2015.
Super Junior debuted under SM Entertainment in 2005 and became one of K-pop’s most iconic groups after the success of their hit song, “Sorry Sorry,” in 2009. Super Junior’s last performance in the United States was at KCON LA on August 1.
