BTS Wins Reader's Poll for Time's Person of the Year
The K-pop sensation was also nominated for its first Grammy Award.
The Army pulled through once again, with BTS winning Time magazine’s reader's poll for 2018 Person of the Year.
BTS, the acclaimed K-pop group made of seven members, came in first place with 9 percent of the vote. And that's not the group's only piece of good news: For the first time in their five-year history, BTS was also nominated for a Grammy Award. Their new album, "Love Yourself: Tear," earned a nomination for best recording package.
Trailing only 0.12 percent behind was Planet Earth, which came in second place. In third place were the Thai cave divers who reached the young soccer team in a brave underwater rescue over the summer.
Other notable figures on the poll included Michelle Obama, undocumented children, Christine Blasey Ford and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
The title is given to the figure Time readers consider to have had the greatest impact in current events over the last year.
Time’s final Person of the Year, chosen by the magazine’s editors, will be released on Dec.11.
