2023 “MAMA Awards” Draws Criticism From Korean Netizens Following Line-Up Announcements

Unfortunately, many netizens have shared they feel that the award show’s camera work took away from what were amazing performances.

For example, during ENHYPEN‘s performance, instead of seeing the group during key moments, viewers at home saw set pieces and wide shots that made it difficult to see small details.

TXT also fell victim to the accused poor camera work, with fans being given massive audience shots during moments when a close up would have been more appropriate.

During an 18-second clip of TXT’s performance, the camera’s angle changed more than 12 times, with a majority of the shots being too wide to see any details of the performance.

With streaming being how the majority of fans are able to see the MAMA Awards, many feel that the show should have made a greater effort to highlight the group’s amazing performances. Some have even said videos recorded by fans in the audience captured the groups better.
