BTS will not be participating in the 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards for THIS reason

Bad news for ARMYs, BTS will not be performing at the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) this year. On December 2, a source from MAMA revealed to Sports Donga that the superstar septet was in talks to make an appearance, but it has now been decided not to appear. Considering their super busy schedule, it will be difficult to shoot a performance video due to their schedule, but they are preparing a short video for ARMYs!

Additionally, due to the new Omicron Covid 19 variant, the South Korean government is imposing heightened restrictions on people entering the country. Anyone entering South Korea on or after December 3 must self-quarantine for 10 days, regardless of their vaccination status. BTS is currently based in Los Angeles, USA, where they held a four-day in-person concert “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE -LA”. They also have an upcoming performance at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour 2021 on December 3. Because 2021 MAMA takes place on December 11, BTS cannot complete their mandatory 10-day self-quarantine in time after arriving in South Korea.

2021 MAMA begins at 6 p.m. KST on December 11 and will be broadcast live worldwide. The offline part of the event may be canceled depending on the government’s Covid 19 prevention measures. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for further updates.
