8 Times Idols Put An End To Fanwars At The 2018 MMAs

They showed their love and support for each other.

Every year, K-Pop fans tune into the Melon Music Awards to support their favourite idol groups, but that’s not the only reason to look forward to this award show. 2018 MMA was the perfect time to see idols interacting with friends outside of their own group!


1. When BTS’s Jungkook danced to BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU DDU-DU”

BLINKs and ARMYs both lost their minds when this clip of Jungkook went public. Jungkook is known for loving girl group dances, so it’s no surprise that he couldn’t help dancing along to this BLACKPINK megahit.

Jungkook wasn’t the only BTS member who showed his inner BLINK. Fans also caught V busting a move during BLACKPINK’s performance!


2. When The Boyz’s Younghoon met his role model

According to fans, Younghoon is a huge admirer of BTS‘s V. At MMA he was finally able to stand right beside V for this The Boyz x BTS group photo.

Fans of both groups were elated to witness several interactions between the groups, both on stage…

…and off stage.


3. This short but sweet reunion between two superstar classmates

Former high school classmates Ong Seongwoo (Wanna One) and Sungjae (BTOB) stopped to chat during MMA…

…and even shared a brief hug!


4. When MAMAMOO and The Boyz gave BTS a standing ovation

Members of MAMAMOO and The Boyz were among some of the idols who couldn’t help standing up to applaud BTS’s incredible performance.


5. When Wanna One’s Jihoon and BTS’s V greeted each other from afar

Wannables and ARMYs fell in love with this sweet hello between Park Jihoon and V.

Wanna One’s Jihoon Commented On BTS V’s Face… And V Responded

Like Younghoon, Park Jihoon previously named V as one of his role models, so fans love it when their paths cross.


6. When BTS’s Jimin and Wanna One’s Ha Sungwoon unofficially won “BFFs of the Year”

Award shows may be competitive, but these besties show nothing but support for one another at each show they attend.

Their heartwarming moments at 2017 MMA made fans wish for new ones this year, and it seems like that wish was granted!

This year, fancams captured Jimin and Ha Sungwoon walking off stage with their arms around each other.

Their bromance lives on!


7. Every time iKON and BTS ended fan wars with their mutual respect

Although iKON and BTS didn’t have many chances to directly interact at 2018 MMA, they repeatedly showed support through their respectful greetings and reactions.

At the end of the show, fans were delighted to see BTS’s RM walk over to iKON to congratulate them directly.


8. This giant crossover at the end of MMA. 

At the end of the show, BTS, GFRIEND, Wanna One, MOMOLAND, and more all stood on the same stage, side by side. Seeing so many fantastic groups in one place fills fans’ hearts with joy!
