Music Makes OneAfter becoming the first music video award ceremony in Korea in 1999 and growing as Korea's best music ceremony with the name Mnet Km Music Festival, Mnet Asia Music Awards became Asia's music award ceremony.
Following after 2009's 'Asian Wave,' 2010's 'One Asia,' we hope to make a time for worldwide artists and fans to become one with music with 2012's slogan of 'Music Makes One'.
Not only does MAMA extend Korean music to the world through a ceremony with 1.9 billion Asians, but MAMA is an international music ceremony that allows fans from all around the world to choose their favorite singers and songs of the year.
We open the doors of the 2012 MAMA, where music will make one.
