Even though the 2022 MAMA Awards aren’t over yet, they have already given K-Pop fans many memorable moments, like Stray Kids‘ performance and the stage where 4th generation girl groups worked together.
There were also a lot of idols who went viral on their own. IVE‘s Gaeul, TREASURE‘s Yoshi, and Stray Kids‘ Felix all made the Internet go crazy with their crazy visuals.
But even on the first day of the awards show, there was a lot to like, and many audiences have had mixed feelings, if not outright complaints, about the show.
Fans and viewers have been very worried about the camerawork during the ceremony in particular.
Even though it was easy to tell that the performances were good, many people were frustrated that the style of filming didn’t let them see the performances up close.
Instead of focusing on the artists, the camera zoomed out and moved over the audience or the stage.
Fans of LE SSERAFIM, for example, felt like they missed a lot of the group’s performance, which is a shame because LE SSERAFIM is known for their high-quality performances and even won an award for them at the 2022 Melon Music Awards.
Netizens also said that this is unfair to the artists, who put in a lot of work to make the best show possible, but many people didn’t get to see it. Some people thought that, among other things, this made the MAMAs this year feel a bit rushed.
MOAs says that Mnet could even learn something from TXT‘s Beomgyu! Fans now hope that on day two, they will be able to see the artists and their performance better.
