1. These guys are always going to Japan

2. It’s MAMA so.. I was expecting them to go to Japanㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. But every year, they’ve been holding it in December so they are doing it pretty early this year

4. People were making a fuss thinking they were holding it in the Philippines or Thailand so I’m not surprised with Japan. I’d be more surprised if they did it in Korea

5. If it’s in November, MCountdown is basically canceled

6. I wasn’t expecting anything but they are going to Japan again…. these Korean award shows are going everywhere but Koreaㅋㅋㅋ I don’t understand the structure (but I get that they can increase the ticket price and whatnot)
