Maybe now they can finally just hold MAMA in Korea instead of this nonsense of holding it in another country. Lol.

Kinda surprised after reading this article that South Korea doesn't have that many large stadiums indoor or outdoor largest indoor is like 11k and outdoor is almost 70k. Like no wonder getting tickets in korea is a nightmare there is no place big enough. When bts came to the UK the tickets sold out so quickly and that was for a stadium of 90k. Plus bts popularity is bigger in korea. Even for other acts the demands are so high that means they have to put on more shows just to meet demands. Considering how much korea has been getting in terms of income from kpop and also the increase in tourism because of it; I am surprised they haven't done something like this sooner.
