This website is very helpful since you don’t need to create an account to vote and you can vote as many times as you want. The app is available on both Android and iOS. If you encounter difficulties while downloading the app, please let us know so we can help you.
- Go on the App Store/Google play store and type “Puffin Web Browser” if you’d like to download the app directly from your phone.
Once you downloaded the app and opened it, you’ll be showed a short tutorial on how the app works. When you’re done, you will be directed on the Start Page.
2. Type “iqiyi mama 2016” or the full URL “http://www.iqiyi.com/yule/2016mama.html” in the navigation bar.

3. iQIYI Worldwide Favourite Artist & MAMA Votes
To vote for MAMA, you need to scroll down the page. You will come across the “iQIYI Worldwide Favourite Artist” Please note that this award is different from the official categories BTS are nominated for, as the winner will be selected by the amount of votes they received from the fans. You can choose to vote for BTS (up to 5 votes) but you probably need a Weibo account to do so.
As you can see the voting page is the same as the official MAMA online voting page set up by MNET. You need to tick an artist in every category in order to cast your vote.

Click on the VOTE button. A message will appear, click OK to continue.
You need to complete a captcha in order to confirm your vote. You can always zoom in if the box is too small for you. Click on the yellow button to send your participation and again, the same message as before will appear, click OK.
