Korean idol group Big Bang scored a triple win at the MTV World Stage Video Music Awards Japan over the weekend, according to their agency YG Entertainment.

YG announced through a press release Saturday that the five-member boy band picked up trophies for Best New Artist Video for "Gara Gara Go!!", their second single in Japan, and Best Pop Video for third single "Koe o Kikasete" at the award ceremony, held at Tokyo's Yoyogi National Stadium on Saturday.

The group's leader G-Dragon also collected Best Collaboration Video for "Rain Is Fallin'", a single by Japanese pop group W-inds which featured the Korean pop idol.

Big Bang, who made their debut in the Japanese pop market last June, has now swept the country's music events as they won Best New Artist at Japan Yusen Awards and Japan Record Awards last year.

Last week, the boy band also made history as they were announced the first Korean dance group to be featured on the main stage at Japan's Summer Sonic Festival 2010, to be held in Tokyo and Osaka on August 7 and 8.

Big Bang, discovered and trained by major talent agency YG Entertainment, is composed of G-Dragon, T.O.P (Choi Seung-hyun), Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri.

Since their 2006 debut with the single "Bigbang", they have been considered huge cultural icons for Korea's younger generation in not only in music but also fashion.

The boys will be staying in Japan to promote their fourth single "Tell Me Goodbye", which will be released on June 9.
