‘2020MAMA’ Overview

‘2020 MAMA’ ended on the 6th. BTS was accounted for eight awards , including four grand prizes, and Mamamoo, Seventeen, IU and Blackpink won three awards.
Technically, it showed stability. Due to the COVID-19, it proceeded non-face-to-face, and there were no controversy about camera recording skills and sound problems that were pointed out as a chronic problem before. For the first time in Korea, the artist’s high-definition slow-motion video content Stanbot, AR, VR, XR, etc were applied to the show.
