Netizens voice outrage over the fact that MAMA 2019 will be taking place in Japan


Netizens are outraged due to the fact that MAMA 2019 will be taking place in Japan.

Given the current socio-political tensions between the two countries, many Korean netizens are taking to the internet to voice their disappointment and disapproval of Mnet's decision to host their yearly award ceremony in the Nagoya Dome.

Comments include: 

"This isn't just a concert. It's an awards ceremony for our country's artists and they're doing that abroad? And in Japan? They must think all the citizens boycotting traveling in Japan as dogs and pigs. Do they have no pride? That our country isn't capable of selling tickets?"

"This is how money ruins a country."

"Any artist who participates in this event will be looked upon as traitors."

"Traitor... throwing away your own country for profit."

"CJ needs to be involved in being boycotted and get a taste of what they are reaping."

What are your thoughts on the reactions?

MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards)... NOT Korean awards. It's that the MAMA's have mostly Koreans in the award show. They do have other awards but nobody cares about those... like the Grammy's have awards for other artists but we don't see those artists receive theirs.

KPOP has transcended Korea and that is why the award show moves from country to country in Asia.

As for Japan... Knets need to get over it. Politics should NEVER be in music. This isn't about Japan and Korea when music is involved. It's about something that can't be contained by the culture and love of music.
