On Sep 21, CJ E&M officially announced that 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards (2020 MAMA) will be held in Korea on Dec 6.
The event was launched in 1999 as a music video awards ceremony, modeled after the MTV Video Music Awards, called the Mnet Music Video Festival. In 2009, the event was renamed the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) to reflect its expansion outside of South Korea. In 2018, MAMA had three parts and was held in three countries; South Korea hosted the MAMA for the first time in nine years, together with Japan and Hong Kong. This year due to the COVID-19, the ceremony wil be held in Korea only in an 'untact' way.
Stay tuned for the list of nominees and performers on the ceremony.
