The 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards (hereafter 2017 MAMA) will feature a very special collaboration!
On November 20, a press conference was held for 2017 MAMA. At the event, Mnet director Kim Ki Woong revealed, “In Japan, AKB48 and I.O.I’s special collaboration stage is prepared.”
He explained, “AKB48 has been promoting for over 10 years in Japan as a national idol group. Their members are selected by votes, which is something they have in common with ‘Produce 101,’ which is why this collaboration stage was prepared.”
It has not yet been revealed which, if not all, I.O.I members will be participating.
Kim Ki Woong added, “Plenty of collaboration stages between Korean artists are also prepared, so please anticipate them.”
