YG Entertainment's top groups Big Bang and 2NE1 took home awards from this year's "YouTube Music Awards".

As reported last month, Big Bang and 2NE1 up for awards at the 2015 YouTube Music Awards, putting them on the same ranks with some of music's biggest acts such as Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Sam Smith, and Taylor Swift.

For this year's awards ceremony, YouTube changed the format a bit by giving awards to a list of artists who earned the "biggest growth in views, subscribers, and engagement over the last six months." Instead of giving awards to artists nominated under different categories, YouTube decided to just honor all of them!

Big Bang and 2NE1 made the list for their high-quality music videos and great storytelling in their "Good Boy" and "Come Back Home" MVs. Netizens flocked to their channels by the second to view their music videos, making them the most-viewed and most-subscribed K-pop artists in YouTube.

Other Korean acts who took home awards from the YouTube Music Awards in previous years include Girls' Generation and PSY.

As a way of thanking fans, 2NE1's Dara posted a photo of her and the group's YouTube Music Awards 2015 trophy! The photograph was captioned "Thank you to all my Blackjacks," and shows Dara pushing the play button on the trophy.

2NE1 took home an award under the Video of the Year category for their futuristic music video "Come Back Home". Aside from the infectious "Come Back Home" track, the music video was also applauded for its amazing cinematic graphics as well as profound storyline which speaks about resistance to corrupt government control.

Congratulations, Big Bang and 2NE1!
