In case you missed it, the 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) was successfully held at the Nagoya Dome in Nagoya, Japan, with South Korean sensation BTS winning 9 trophies, including 4 daesang (grand prize) awards.

Apart from trophy-giving ceremony, fans were also treated with special performances from numerous K-pop acts – from rookies to legendary groups. Without further ado, here’s a list of our favourite moments from last night’s MAMA.

5. ATEEZ’s Mingi’s return from hiatus

For those who don’t know, Song Mingi – member of rising boyband ATEEZ – was on hiatus after suffering an injury. But to ATINYs’ (as fans are lovingly called) delight, the 20-year-old made his much-anticipated comeback with a shocking twist!

During the 9-member group’s take on their hit-song “Wonderland”, they prepared a special mash-up performance with other past popular jams including BTS’ “Blood, Sweat & Tears”, SHINee’s “View” and miss A’s “Goodbye Baby”. After main vocal Jongho delivered his flawless high note, Mingi started to unbutton his vest and delivered an energetic dance break.

4. Seventeen’s Wonwoo’s blows CARATs’ hearts away with blood-sucking stage charisma

For the segment “Alternate Universe #17”, Seventeen performed their 2019 hits “Fear” and also “Hit”. The one that caught everyone’s attention would be rapper Wonwoo’s eye-catching opening lines.

The Changwon-born idol sure blew CARATs away with his pale and dapper vampire-inspired look during the show. To quote Koreaboo, fans “couldn’t decide between being scared or be in awe by his stage presence.”

3. GOT7 Jackson’s priceless reaction to Mamamoo x JYP performance

K-pop quintet Mamamoo and Park Jinyoung (JYP) had a special collaboration for the segment called “Glamorous Party”, where they performed some of their biggest hit songs together on stage. Member Hwasa performed her debut single “Twit” and “Don’t Leave Me” with the legendary singer-songwriter. After a killer dance performance, the duo ended their pose with the 24-year-old sitting on JYP’s lap.

Known as a living meme among K-fans, GOT7’s Jackson’s reaction was the best though. In this case, the Hong Kong-born K-pop idol was seen awestruck by the performance, keeping his mouth opened as the segment took place. Check out some of fans’ tweets here:

2. Hwasa and Dua Lipa’s adorable reaction on stage

Another notable highlight from Hwasa during the show was the sizzling special stage collaboration between her and British pop star Dua Lipa. During the segment called “Make The New Rules”, the “I Live Alone” star wowed the crowd with a cover of Dua’s signature hit “New Rules”, before she introduced the Grammy-award-winning songstress on stage to perform “Don’t Start Now”.

Not only that, Dua was also honoured with the “International Favourite Artiste” award. The trophy was presented by none other than Hwasa herself. The duo then shared a cute hug together as Dua were preparing to deliver her speech.

1. BTS took fans back to 2013 with throwback stage

Indeed, eagle-eyed ARMYs have tons of their personal favourite moments of the 7-member band during their appearance last night. This includes Jin’s birthday hat, non-stop VMin (V and Jimin fanship) interaction on-stage during their “Boy With Luv” as well as their reaction to other performing idols.

But the one that we want to highlight would be the group’s energetic take on their past hit songs such as “N.O” and “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2”. In this case, it was very heartwarming for fans who grew up together with them and witness their successful achievements.

Bonus: 

Chungha slayed the stage with “Gotta Go” performance

Another interesting highlight would be the “The Genesis Of Time” segment featuring our favourite Cinderella, Chungha. However, Byulharangs (Chungha’s fandom name) started pointing out that the ex-IOI member was given a limited amount of time during her performance.

Despite the fact, the 23-year-old still managed to deliver an outstanding performance of her popular song “Gotta Go”. If you don’t believe us, then check out the video above:

P/s: Chungha managed to snag 2 trophies that night – “Best Dance Performance Solo” as well “Best Female Artiste” awards.
