The idol group BTS and Black Pink were included in the annual ``Person of the Year'' nominations selected by the American current affairs magazine Time magazine.
On the 26th (Korean time), Time magazine opened a voting page for people of the year, including BTS and Black Pink, on the website and is conducting online voting. Time magazine explained,'Please select a person who has had the greatest influence on the events of the year, whether positive or negative.'
BTS was the first Asian singer to be nominated for'Best Pop Duo Group Performance' at the Grammy Awards, the most prestigious music awards ceremony in the United States.
