Super Jr, not 1D, are teens' pick
K-POP boy band Super Junior won the Choice International Artist award at the annual Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, becoming the first Korean group to receive the honour presented by the United States-based Fox television network.
The Choice International Artist award is given to the most influential group outside the US. Super Junior, which consists of 12 members, beat A-list nominees such as Korean girl group Girls' Generation, British band One Direction and Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer to the award.
The 2015 Teen Choice Awards took place in Los Angeles, where stars gathered to receive the awards based on the votes of millions of teenagers around the globe via social media.
Super Junior's official fan club E.L.F. received the Choice Fandom Award.
