This year, rookie girl group IZ*ONE was one of several new groups to take home awards from the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) premiere.
MAMA kicked off on December 10 in Korea, and will continue on December 12 with the 2018 MAMA Fans’ Choice in Japan, then the 2018 MAMA in Hong Kong on December 14.
IZ*ONE, NATURE, GWSN, (G)I-DLE, LOONA, and fromis_9 were all nominated for the “Best New Female Artist Award”.
When IZ*ONE were announced the winners…
…the members were taken completely by surprise.
Fancams captured several of the members’ hilarious, delayed reactions…
