MAMAMOO fans aren’t pleased with The 2019 Melon Music Awards!

On November 30, The 2019 Melon Music awards were held at the Gocheok Sky Dome, it was broadcasted live on Melon and 1theK’s YouTube channel. Among the attendees were MAMAMOO who is considered one of the senior groups, however, despite the initial expectations; fans were disappointed to see how MAMAMOO were treated during the award ceremony.





It all started with the red carpet event, MAMAMOO weren’t interviewed at the red carpet as initially expected and it took fans by surprise despite many other groups who attended getting interviewed. Until then, fans had thought that an error might’ve occurred and the MCs forgot to interview a group that has been around for more than 5 years.

However, that wasn’t the end of it, according to fans that is.

MAMAMOO, as a group, were only granted 4 minutes to perform some of their biggest tracks at the award ceremony. Despite the fact that their songs topped Korean music charts for a while throughout 2019.

Other younger groups (even rookies) got 8 and 11 minutes to perform at the ceremony. It is quite shocking that a senior group who has had a very successful year didn’t get the chance to shine properly or even get enough time to perform their tracks like the younger groups.

Fans also found an issue with the order of the performers. Usually, the best and biggest performers of each award ceremony are reserved for the end of the night. Many fans believe MAMAMOO were misplaced among rookie groups in the middle of the award ceremony when they deserved a different timeslot befitting of their status as one of the top girl groups, many thought they’d perform right before BTS.





As a result, MAMAMOO fans trended #respectmamamoo on twitter to express their disappointment with the way Melon handled them. Here are some of their tweets:
