“Let’s give the Best MC award to Park Bo Gum.”

Park Bo Gum is being praised for his excellent hosting skills at the 2018 MAMA FANS’ CHOICE in Japan, which was held on December 12 at the Saitama Super Arena.


As his second consecutive year hosting the event, he led the event with confidence in fluent Korean, English and even Japanese.

“It’s been a long time everyone. I am very happy to see everyone again this year. This year is MAMA’s 10th anniversary and in the center of it all was all you. That’s why we’ve chosen the title ‘FANS CHOICE in JAPAN’ that signifies everyone’s passion.”

Although the hosts typically don’t appear often on MAMA events, Park Bo Gum did a fine job in the short period of airtime without making any mistakes and hardly looking at his script.


In fact, the MAMA event was not his first time hosting a live broadcast as he was formerly an MC for KBS2’s Music Bank alongside Red Velvet’s Irene. The two had such great chemistry that fans hoped they were dating.
