CJ ENM announced their current position on this year's 'MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards)' ceremony.
On July 20th, CJ ENM told Newsen media that the venue for the upcoming MAMA has not yet been decided. CJ ENM stated, "We will select the venue by putting the safety of the artists and staff members as our top priority."
Previously, Daily Sports reported that CJ ENM is discussing the possibility of holding their MAMA ceremony in Hong Kong in December of this year. CJ ENM held '2020 MAMA' in South Korea in December of last year through online platforms. This decision had been made to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The ceremony attracted a lot of attention from viewers for its use of advanced technologies such as AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality), and XR (Extended Reality) to enrich the stage performances.
MAMA is a music awards ceremony that began with Mnet's 'Video Music Awards' in 1999, and was eventually transformed into the current MAMA ceremony in 2009. It continued to initiate 'firsts' in the history of the music industry, such as being the first Korean award ceremony to expand globally, and the first to simultaneously be broadcast in three different Asian regions.
