Kim Yuna to present award at Mnet Asian Music Awards
Olympic gold medalist figure skater Kim Yuna will attend the upcoming Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) as a presenter.
CJ ENM unveiled the star-studded lineup of award presenters on Friday.
Kim, who will be attending a music awards ceremony for the first time, said she has decided to attend as a presenter at the awards "to root for the power of music that healed people across the world during the Covid-19 pandemic."
This will be her first public appearance after marrying singer Ko Woo-rim last month.
Olympic speed skater Kwak Yoon-gy and Korean golf legend Pak Se-ri will also be attending the awards as presenters.
Veteran actor Hwang Jung-min, best known for his roles in films "New World" (2013) and "Veteran" (2015) and the recent Neflix Korea's popular original series "Narco-Saints" (2022), will also appear as a presenter.
Some of the others in the lineup include actors Yeo Jin-goo, Yim Si-wan and Han Sun-hwa.
The 2022 MAMA is set to take place at the Kyocera Dome Osaka in Japan on Nov. 29 and 30. The ceremony will be livestreamed through Mnet’s official YouTube channel.
