Besides these three idol groups, there are also only a few solo artists and international artists perform on stage. And this fact has created a lot of opposition on social networking sites.
In this evening, MBC Plus Music Awards 2018 (MGA) will officially take place in Korea. This is the first time the awards ceremony held, so many are curious to see if MGA 2018 can deliver impressive differences compared to other awards. But on the eve of the event, the music award made a big controversy as the list of performers was leaked on the Internet.
On the night before the award ceremony, many celebrities and artists have confirmed their presence at MGA 2018, sparking great expectations from the audience for explosive performances.
