According to recent news, BTS will not be attending the Mnet Asain Music Awards.
The change in plans is due to the emergence of the Coronavirus variant, Omicron, and the subsequent rise in positive cases worldwide.
Considering the deteriorating situation, the South Korean government has directed a 10-days quarantine on international travelers arriving in the country.
The quarantine orders are to be enforced beginning December 3rd. Currently, BTS are in the United States for their offline concert, Permission To Dance On Stage, and are also to perform at the ‘2021 Jingle Ball Tour‘ in Los Angeles, California on December 3 PST.
Given the awards are scheduled for December 11, it would not be possible for the band to make it to the MAMAs as they will have to quarantine for 10 days before they could attend the ceremony.
