'2018 MAMA' under fire for giving 'Best New Female Artist' award to IZ*ONE over (G)I-DLE

The '2018 Mnet Asian Artist Awards' is under fire for unfairness. 

On December 10, the '2018 MAMA Premiere in Korea' took place at DDP in Seoul. At the event, the project girl group IZ*ONE from Mnet's 'Produce 48' won the 'Best New Female Artist.'

However, on the online votes for 'Best New Female Artist', Cube Entertainment girl group (G)I-DLE took 1st place by taking over 50% of the votes. Meanwhile, IZ*ONE only gained 17.64% of the votes. 


The online vote is not the only factor that determines the winner. Multiple factors including the expert evaluation, album sales, MV views, live broadcast votes, and more are taken into consideration. However, netizens believe (G)I-DLE still should've been the winner as they had a major lead in the online votes. 

To this, a rep from Mnet stated, "It's true that (G)I-DLE gained many votes online, but they fell behind in album sales." The rep emphasized, "There were no manipulation or (unfair) intervention in the awards."

You can check out the full winners here.

  1. (G)I-DLE
  2. IZ*ONE

it's mama, disappointing but yet not surprising. I don't hate Iz*one, their debut was good but (G)I-Dle has worked really hard this year and they really deserved it. This whole thing isn't Iz*ones fault, it's Mnets, so you shouldn't hate on the group. We all know Mnet is a snake

Woa hold your horses buddy. I like Iz*one- I have nothing against them and bop to La vie en Rose daily. But the point of my comment was just that people shouldn't hate of the groups. I never said Iz*one doesn't work hard, they did and still do. Winning once or twice does not matter but winning twice is not a bad thing??? Hating a group for winning both awards would be dumb.

Idk what about my comment offended you? I'm just saying (G)I-dle deserved it too?

your numbers are very off, completely skewed towards IZ*ONE winning

you have taken the online voting with all 6 nominees which reduces Idle's score but only used data from 2 nominees for the record and music sales, which considering fromis_9 and Loona both sold well would reduce IZ*ONE's score greatly, also you have taken a random single months music sales (June) for Idle rather than all of the actual sales which comes to 615M, so Idle would slaughter them in that category.


Also giving both a max judges score is kind of dumb, BTS, EXO, RV, Bol4 and IU didn't even get 50% last year in order for TWICE to win SOTY

IZONE did better in one category, album sales where they did 6 times the number of sales but it only accounts for 20% whereas Idle beat them in 2 categories, the fan vote with 3 times the votes of IZONE that accounts for 20% and digital which accounts for 30% where Idle were 7 times better. Much like last year its going to have come down to the judges vote to decide where MNET have control over the outcome as they don't have to show us the result. Last year, BTS, EXO, Red Velvet, Bol4 and IU got near to nothing in judges and TWICE got near if not 100% for them to win the SOTY.

Wanna One won like 2 daesangs already (AAA one was very random though) so it wouldn't be this weird if they win a Daesang in MAMA considering that they are Mnet's children. I'm guessing ArOTY because BTS and Momoland will get the other two. But they might only win the best male group instead of a daesang.

Its near impossible for Wanna one to get artist of the year because its blatantly obvious whos going to get it (BTS). Even though Wanna one is a mnet artist, mnet knows itself what backlash they'll get if this happens because in terms of sales, views and etc. the only group who is obviously at the top is BTS. Not a fan, but just pointing out the obvious out here. With iZone, Mnet was able to come up with the sales excuse because their sales were better than gIDLE and they broke records, but this year there's no group that has had more sales than BTS. Not to mention Mnet promotes BTS a lot which kind of gives you a clue.

come on what? Why do people constantly belittle w1 and act like they didn't get the best results after bts this year? from album sales (they're literally the 3rd highest selling artists since 2010 and they only did that in a year), to cumulative digital points, to those stupid brand rankings every month, to music show wins, to completing a 3 month world tour not even a year into being a group. They've been the busiest idols this year and their results prove that they deserve every award given to them. Also, you can't just say they're handing them an award solely because they made them because award shows that have no connections to them, MGA and MMA also gave them daesangs so they're clearly deserving.


*also i don't want to hear that mnet bought them those other daesangs because I.O.I attended and performed at the MMA's and were nominated in 6 different categories but walked away with zero awards.

IZ*ONE waaay too new but they do actually have more album sales due to crazy fans. We always see them on the news, they can barely go in and out of the airport.

While (G)I-DLE is a talented rookie. They're probably "better" in the eyes of many but their 6th month old mini album isn't even close to the sales of IZ*ONE's less than a month mini album.

All in all this comes down to the statistics such as album, song sales, research and judging. Voting is only a small percentage of determining the winner. I dont know if they deserve the award or not (cause i dont follow award shows ╮(╯▽╰)╭ ) but if you think about it, dont you think IZ*ONE has a bigger fanbase? They came from a survival show and built their fanbase from there but (G)I-DLE just kinda came out of nowhere,,with bomb music aye,, so their fanbase isnt as strong which means less album sales. And maybe IZ*ONE had a bigger impact in korea than (G)-IDLE because of their bigger fanbase(?) Idk its just my opinion

izone getting all these advantages because they're from that show. wherein, idle was uncared pre debut then they snatched everyone with their "one hit wonder" song, then came back with a song that raises the par to another level. but anyways, debuting in mnet is more advantageous than debuting in a "soon to be bankrupt company". AND IMPACT????? idle placed 1st in brand reputation for 2 months. still slaying the charts and having 500m digitals with 2 songs. clearly,korea loves them.

I will never take seriously these awards or the music shows because of online voting... Groups that have the best music, the best performance, the best album or the best mv, never win because it's a popularity contest. Don't get me wrong i enjoy the big performances, but nothing else. I think like the oscars (although some times they are biased), the people that should vote are the ones in the industry.

I agree. I don't understand why so many Asian award shows are a popularity contest. It should be about sales and quantifiable numbers. The fact that there are often multiple winners in certain categories also rubs me the wrong way. That waters down the meaning of earning an award if your just going to give it away freely. Fan votes should not even be as important as they currently are. Music critics and industry insiders should ultimately be the deciding factor for winners. Award shows need to come up with better guidelines and criteria for winning.

But I feel like in Korea Izone > g idle and the reverse internationally.. Besides, whether I agree or not, of course they'll hype their groups at their award shows, its a given.

If Izone had another comeback like g idle, this probably wouldn't have been a discussion.

Come on!! Everyone knows Izone deserve it! I mean they sold more of 180,00 copies of their album, they are the 3rd girlgroup with the best sales of a album after Twice and BP. They broke the record of more views on Youtube for a debut group, they even enter in the top of Oricon, their fancafe is the one with most followers of the groups who debuted this year same with their VLIVE. Want more??? -.-

I mean, we know now that ALL award shows are television productions right? They'll do what they gotta do for ratings. They know exactly what they're setting up with the voting system. All I care about are the performances. I like to weed out whos the real deal and who's less than that lol

Do people even care about this? BTS never got this crappy award and they are now the giants of the K-Pop industry. As long as they keep releasing good music and growing their fanbase, they will be okay. Only actual awards that matter in Korea are Melon and GDA (maybe Korean Music Awards as well). MAMA is just for the performances, isn't it?

BTS aren't giants of the K-Pop industry. Though I agree, only awards that actually matter are Melon and GDA (as well as KMA). Mama and anything Mnet are just lying, cheating and popularity contest. The fact that fans are allowed to vote for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the year literally shows it's a popularity contest. Cause if they were as serious as it should be, then Artist, Song and Album would be by chart (played, downloaded, bought and etc) NOT by fan vote. That's fucking stupid. It's literally a popularity contest and MNET always riggs and cheats anyways so it's useless for any of us to waste our time on.

At the end of the day IZ*ONE still has more impact in South Korea. They're the most talk in town since their debut and their brand rep proved that. Anyways, congrats to both groups!


Edit: Btw Rookie Of The Year has nothing to do with charts, album sales ect. Its not like Artist of the year, album of the year or song of the year. ROTY title is given by judges.

But you do know that (G)-Idle also topped the brand reputation ranking at first place in June (after their debut) and September (after their first comeback) with 10.04 Mil and 16.78 Mil index ratings right? While, Izone were at 2nd and 3rd place in Nov and Dec (after debut) with 12.24 Mil and 11.61 Mil index ratings, in which both still does not exceed G-Idle September index ratings. Also, ROTY isn't a Special Award. It's under the "Artist of The Year" category awards which include sales and digital records.

(G) i-dle really worked hard and their performance and the songs they perform are really good and international fans like them a lot because they have more talent compared to i*zone. But korean fans like i*zone because they are entertaining and there are lot of visuals in the group. To say not all the 12 members are as talented as (G) i-dle and i can bet u that they cannot beat (G) i-dle maybe chaeyeon. I am not offending them even i too liked them when I saw v live but u should choose the group which is based on talent and good at singing. Maybe they are good at singing and dancing but they are not as good as (G) i-dle. So plz understand. I hope even blackpink and ikon wins in mama. They are really talented. YG has awesome groups and they are choosen based on their singing, rap and dancing and not based on visuals,. So i hope korean fans understand that visuals are not always that important and even in produce 48 they chose all visuals and they lost han cho won and many others. I am not offending anyone but i am making them understand this is what international fans think.

It doesn't matter if they didn't win this award... They won others, and winning or not, nothing will fade what G-idle accomplished this year, being a rookie and winning 1st place so fast, making those bops, with almost all members coming from the shadows and not a 3 month well-known reality show who manufactures a group by putting all the favorites together, which is guaranteed success. G-idle had nothing of those and still suceeded, because they are really good and that is enough. Let's keep on cheering our girls, I know they will be big, and plus they will last and promote way more than Iz*one, so let them be :3
