Artists and actors/actresses who have had the pleasure to previously host the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) have included names such as Song Joong Ki, Lee Seung Gi, Song Seung Heon, PSY, Lee Byung Hun, Park Bo Gum, and Jung Hae In.

As of writing this article, today on the 13th of October, another big name has entered the fray as it was confirmed that Lee Hyori is going to host the 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards

"With the concept of 'MAKE SOME NOISE,' 2021 MAMA intends to show the world the renewed and upgraded power of music to respect the value of difference and break through prejudices. We cast Lee Hyori as the host because we felt that she embodied the values that we wanted to embrace for this year's MAMA," an insider from Mnet expressed.

Furthermore, CJ ENM's director of music content Kim Hyun Soo, who is in charge of the MAMA ceremonies, explained that the 2021 MAMA will be a place for artists and fans to communicate through each other's voices. 

"The hundreds of thousands of voices of fans are all different, but no matter where they are, they can come together as one through K-pop. The music we need most is the harmonization of fans all over the world," Kim Hyun Soo added.

Notably, to take into account the global impact of the K-pop genre, the 2021 MAMA will have for the very first time, data taken from the streaming platform Apple Music, alongside the regular data garnered from Gaon, Twitter, and YouTube.

The 2021 MAMA, usually hosted in different places in Asia yearly, will be celebrated in Korea due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Similar to the 2020 MAMA, the 2021 MAMA will happen at CJ ENM's Contents World in Paju City in Gyeonggi Province.

The 11th of December will be the date where fans and netizens can see their favorite celebrities in the 2021 MAMA.
