Popular K-pop group Blackpink, which features Kiwi member Rosé, took home Best Metaverse Performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday (NZ time) but was wrongly announced as the Group of the Year before the ceremony officially started.

The incorrect announcement was made by Rolling Stone in a tweet on Monday morning.

“They’re the first female K-Pop act to win Group of the Year at the #VMAs,” the magazine’s since-deleted tweet read.

More than three hours later fellow K-pop act BTS was announced as the winner of the award.

Blackpink member Rosé, whose full name is Rosanne Park, was born in Auckland to Korean immigrant parents, the Asia Media Centre reported.

The South Korean group has a few other Kiwi connections. Member Jennie Kim spent her school years in Auckland, studying at Waikowhai Intermediate and ACG Parnell College.
