How You Can Have The MAMA 2015 Experience Right From Your Very Own Home

With only a few hours left until broadcast, the countdown to the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) is quickly approaching zero.

Unfortunately, since many of us cannot spare the money or time to actually visit Hong Kong for this incredible, star-studded night of performances and awards, we at KpopStarz have put together a list of all the things you'll need to have the best 2015 MAMA viewing experience right from your own home.

1. Stock up on a lot caffeine

With MAMA starting at 1AM PST/ 4AM EST in the United States and running for a full six hours long, you'll definitely need some boosts to keep you awake for the whole stretch. We advise picking up a few cups (or bottles) of your favorite tea, coffee, or soda to keep you charged all through the night and well into the next morning if you have school or work.

2. Have all your K-pop items ready

K-pop events are a lot more exciting when you can cheer for Big Bang while wearing your "MADE Series" concert shirt, or sing along with BTS while waving their light stick. Since MAMA is all about celebrating the biggest and best K-pop stars and performances, make sure you're well prepared to show your K-pop spirit and let the world know who your bias group is. Have no official merchandise? No problem! Print out some of your favorite pictures to wave around or write out your favorite groups name on your phone. The possibilities for creativity are endless!

3. Get some Korean snacks

What's a K-pop event without Korean food? Take advantage of your space at home and cook up as much food as you can handle. Or, if you're not in the mood for such heavy food so late, stock up on smaller snacks to munch on through the night.

4. Gather your friends

Invite your fellow K-pop loving friends over for a night of eating, talking, and of course great music! MAMA in set to include many great performances from groups like Big Bang, EXO, BTS, f(x) and so many more, so get ready to dance with your crew all night long. If you're unable to meet in person, set up an online viewing party via Skype or Chatroom and spend the night together virtually. Many fan clubs and outlets also host their own virtual MAMA viewing parties so be on the lookout for those as well.

5. Stream it live

After you've gathered all your things and prepared all your food it'd time to watch the event! Earlier this month, KCON announced that they will be live streaming all of MAMA through their new platform KCON.TV. The live stream is set to include both the red carpet as well as the whole award show. Remember, the red carpet stream starts at 1AM PST/4AM EST, so don't miss your chance to catch one of the most anticipated and talked about events in K-pop.
