KARA, Stray Kids, ITZY, and TXT will grace the 2022 MAMA Awards stage with special stages.
On November 23, CJ ENM said, “KARA, Stray Kids, ITZY, and TXT will hold a special stage.”
First, KARA, who will return as a full group in seven years, decided to release the new song stage of their 15th anniversary album “MOVE AGAIN” for the first time and further showcase KARA’s hit medley stage. KARA will grace the stage of the 2022 MAMA Awards with a medley of all-time hits “Lupin,” “Mr.” and “STEP.”
Stray Kids will showcase an experimental stage different from all performances done so far. During this stage, Kyocera Dome Osaka is expected to transform into a bizarre experimental laboratory that creates abnormal groups, creating eight maniacs, and performing impressive stage that cannot be seen anywhere else.
ITZY will present their new song stage of their new mini-album “CHESHIRE,” which is set to be released on November 30, for the first time at the 2022 Mama Awards. ITZY, who performed an all-time performance with actor Heo Sung Tae last year, is said to be preparing for a more colorful performance under the concept of “The Birth of the Queen” this year.
