Mnet Asian Music Awards 2018

While this has been the first time in ten years that South Korea was included among the countries where MAMA would be hosted, netizens are currently talking about how low quality it is.

It seems that Mnet has attempted to please the K-Pop fans in South Korea but didn't exactly put much thought into how things might look from their perspective.

Fans have been complaining on and off about the lineup for the most part.

Below are some of the comments from netizens.

"Why do they insist on hosting this dumb awards ceremony in three different countries?"

"Who on earth were those Japanese idol girl group? Is this a school talent show? It was embarrassing for me to watch their performance. And they call this a global awards ceremony?"

"Music Bank and M Countdown does a much better job every time than this low quality event."

"I wish they'd stop pretending that they are hosting a global awards ceremony. Come back when you guys are able to get stars like Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, or Taylor Swift, then we might start believing it's a global event."

What did you think of the MAMA 2018 kick-off in South Korea? Was seeing only rookies and lesser known idol groups a let-down?

And then there’s the current issue with a Wanna One fan of Jisung who was rude twirls Kim HyunJin for throwing a flower on stage and telling her to give it to Jisung and… Read more »

[PART 2] Like I legit saw a video of my favorite and talented idols / artist doing a dance relay for Mama 2018 on Instagram and they didn’t even give credits or mention where they got the video. And when a fan asked them in the comments they replied with a “dm” and that just annoys me. I found the video myself, because it really wasn’t that hard to find, I just shook my head “Twice” because two people legit didn’t give proper credits and one person acted like they owned the video and wouldn’t share the videos link in… Read more »
