The Mnet Asian Music Awards (commonly abbreviated as MAMA) is one of the major K-pop music awarding ceremonies held annually by CJ E&M Music and Live, involving the participation of some of the most well-known actors and idols. As one of the most important events in the South Korean music industry, it has been attended by many popular and most successful K-pop singers such as Lee Hyori, 2NE1, 2PM, BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior, Big Bang, Girls' Generation, Brown Eyed Girls, IU, Infinite, Exo, Beast, SHINee and other musically active artists in South Korea.



The Awards began in 1999 under the name " Korean Music Festival" (MKMF) till 2008.[1]

In 2009, the Awards was renamed to " Asian Music Awards" (MAMA). This marked a change in concept and the way they will handle how people may vote for which artistes win the awards. The 2009 MAMA was broadcast live in China, Japan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia through Channel V International. The special main event is the "Global Artist Award". In addition, a trot award is added to the genre along with other pop music awards.

For the first time, the 2010 Asian Music Festival was held outside of South Korea. For the 12th annual event, it was held at the Venetian Resort Macao in Macao, China and aired live in many countries. BoA won the "Best Female Solo Award" but was not present to accept the award due to S.M. Entertainment's (BoA's music agency) controversies with Mnet Media. The award presentation was not broadcast. In addition, CNBLUE who won "Best New Male Group Award", 2AM, who won "Best Vocal Performance by a Group", and 2AM's Jo Kwon and Ga-In, who won "Best Collaboration" were also not broadcast due to attendance.[2]

In 2011, the Mnet Asian Music Awards took place in the Singapore Indoor Stadium and had performances from famous international artists such as and from The Black Eyed Peas, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kumi Koda and Jane Zhang.[3] The MAMAs is co-hosted by Singapore broadcaster MediaCorp.[4]


2009: Boycott[edit]

In 2009, S.M. Entertainment and Inwoo Production boycotted the 2009 MAMA event on 21 November, hence none of their artists attended the event. Inwoo Production representing trot singers Jang Yoon-jeong and Park Hyun-bin, announced the boycott and questioned the fairness of the awards ceremony. S.M. Entertainment stated that they have reservation regarding the standard of fairness and criteria used in their selections, citing that Girls' Generation had topped a music chart for nine consecutive weeks but was never placed first place on their show and only debut on their charts a month after the album was released. They also asked that their artists be removed from a mobile poll which requires participants to pay a fee in order to vote saying they "do not want to see fans suffer any damage from the poll which has commercial intentions".[5]

SS501 from DSP Media, Son Dam-bi and After School from Pledis Entertainment also did not attend the award ceremony but cited scheduling conflicts rather than boycott.[6][7]

2010: Non-attendance[edit]

In 2010, Rain, MBLAQ, 2AM, Beast, T-ara, Davichi[8] 4Minute, Kara, Super Junior, Girls' Generation,[9] Wheesung, BoA, After School, Son Dam-bi,[10] Lee Hyori, CNBLUE,[11] G.NA, and Rainbow who were all nominated did not attend the 2010 MAMA event in Macau, the first time it was held overseas. Many cited scheduling conflicts and that the live broadcast of MAMA on November 28 clashed with the live weekly broadcast of SBS's music show Inkigayo. Core Contents Media stated that T-ara and Davichi will not be attending due to scheduling conflicts. FNC announced that CN Blue will not attend due to individual activities despite being nominated for "Rookie of the Year", "Best Band Performance" and the "Shilla Duty Free Asian Wave" award. Jung Yong-hwa of CN Blue is also one of the three MCs for Inkigayo and member Kang Min Hyuk will be taking part in a SBS upcoming drama.[12] J. Tune Entertainment and Pledis Entertainment also stated that their artists would not be attending.


The show is broadcast live in thirteen countries across Asia. In South Korea and Japan, it is broadcast on Mnet. Other TV channels that have broadcast the show include STAR World, Channel M (Southeast Asia), Channel V, Music On! TV (Japan), 8TV (Malaysia), MediaCorp Channel U (Singapore), Indosiar (Indonesia), Myx (Philippines), MY TV (Cambodia), Mnet America (United States), NRK (Norway) and SBS (Australia). The show is also broadcast online from Mnet's website in South Korea, Sohu in China, YouTube Live and Allkpop for the rest of the world.[13]
