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 through its music channel Mnet. The annual music event is broadcast to South Korea, China, Japan, Indonesia, Canada, Singapore, Taiwan and the United States.

History[edit]

The Awards began in 1999 under the name "Mnet Km Music Festival" (MKMF).[1] At that time, it was the first and only Korean music video awards ceremony.[2] After its 10th year anniversary in 2008, the award-giving body was renamed to "M.net Asian Music Awards" or simply "MAMA" in 2009. This marked a change in concept and the way they will handle how people may vote for which artists win the awards.[1] It started its broadcast live in China, Japan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia through Channel V International.

In 2010, the event was held outside of South Korea for the first time. The 12th annual event was held at the Venetian Resort Macao in Macao, China and aired live in many countries. BoA, who won the "Best Female Solo Award", was not present in the ceremony due to her music agency's, S.M. Entertainment, controversies with Mnet Media. In addition, CNBLUE, 2AM, Jo Kwon, Ga-In who all won awards were not broadcast due to lack of attendance.[3]

Their slogans were changed from "Asian Wave" and "One Asia" in 2009 and 2010 respectively, until it becomes "Music Makes One" from 2011 until the 2016, and next slogan is "MAMA Makes One" from 2017 until the future. Their slogans mean to spread their main objective to bring people together through music despite their different genre, origins, cultures, languages, or country.[2]

Controversies[edit]

  • In 2007, Lee Min Woo and Shin Hye Sung, both members of Shinhwa left the MKMF event right before broadcasting. Their management company later released a statement regarding the matter, reporting that their artists received unfair treatment from MKMF. [16]
  • In 2009, S.M. Entertainment and Inwoo Production boycotted the 2009 MAMA event on November 21, hence none of their artists attended the event. Inwoo Production, representing trot singers Jang Yun-jeong and Park Hyun-bin, announced the boycott and questioned the fairness of the awards ceremony. Meanwhile, through a press release, 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 money in order to vote saying they "do not want to see fans suffer any damage from the poll which has commercial intentions".[17]
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.[18][19]
  • In 2010, Rain, MBLAQ, 2AM, Beast, T-ara, Davichi[20] 4Minute, Kara, Super Junior, Girls' Generation,[21] Wheesung, BoA, After School, Son Dam-bi,[22] Lee Hyori, CNBLUE,[23] 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 was also one of the three MCs for Inkigayo and member Kang Min Hyuk was to be taking part in an upcoming SBS drama.[24] J. Tune Entertainment and Pledis Entertainment also stated that their artists would not be attending.
  • In 2017, Mnet conducted an investigation on illegal voting through the use of "bots."[25] As a result, Mnet has decided that all illegitimate votes would be nullified, their relevant IP addresses blocked, and all relevant accounts deleted.[26]
