Watching the last night of MAMAs this year was exciting from start to finish. Every performance was on point and I am sure to have the sight of Taemin wrapped up in those white straps ingrained into my memory for many weeks to come. All of the artists nominated worked hard over the last year and deserve a lot of love and respect for all that they do!
What was your favorite performance of the night? How did you enjoy the new, multi-day structure of the MAMA Awards? And most importantly, where can I get the jacket Kang Daniel from Wanna One wore during their acceptance speech because I NEED it! Let me know in the comments, Wannable!
