Cho Jungseok, BTS, Hwang Chiyeol, Ock Joohyun, Ahn Jihwan, Kim Saengmin and others are strong candidates to be awarded by the Ministry of Culture for their contribution to the development of South Korea's culture. Their names are mentioned as the prize winners of this year's Pop Culture Award awarded by Korea's Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

On 17th, according to many officials the candidates were invited to "2016 South Korea Pop Culture Award" which will take place this 27th. Pop Culture Award hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (Minister Cho Yoonseun) is the highest government prize ceremony conducted by Korea Creative Content Agency (Representative Song Sunggak)

In 2013, BTS appeared in the K Pop industry and in just 3 years they rose as the boy group that achieved an all kill on music charts. Their recently released second full album "WINGS" showed signs of success by lining up on online music charts as soon as it was released.

Only winners (no candidates) are invited to the Pop Culture Award every year so everyone is familiar with the "attendee = winner" formula. It's drawing our attention to see if they will all attend the ceremony to have the honor at this joyful event.
