2021 is slowly coming to a close, which also means year-end award shows - one of which is the highly anticipated Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)

Dubbed as "the original K-pop awards", the Korean awards show has teased its return earlier today (06/10) via Twitter. Known for celebrating the biggest names in Korean music and presenting jaw-dropping live performances, this year's MAMA will be happening on 11 December 2021. 

The upcoming ceremony will be hosted by K-pop icon Lee Hyo Ri.
