Mnet (acronym of Music Network) is a South Korean pay television music channel owned by CJ E&M, a division of CJ ENM, part of CJ Group.

The CJ E&M Center Studio located in Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul is the broadcast and recording centre of many Mnet programs with a studio audience, namely the live weekly music show M Countdown. It is also the venue for live performances in survival shows such as Superstar K, Show Me The Money, Unpretty Rapstar, Produce 101 series, High School Rapper, Queendom, Road to Kingdom, Kingdom and Girls Planet 999. Other shows are filmed in CJ E&M Studio in Ilsan and CJ E&M Contents World in Paju.

History

The global website named for Mnet Global changed to MWave in April 2013. Other sites from Mnet are not affected with the change.

On February 5, 2020, it was revealed that CJ ENM had begun restructuring Mnet's "We Are K-Pop" slogan and brand after the controversy behind "Produce 101" damaged the network's image.

On February 24, 2020, Mnet unveiled their new brand logo along with its 25th anniversary., Their new logo design is based on their old logo from 1995 with the addition of their current Mnet shape and colour. M2, Mwave, and the Mnet Production logo have stuck to the former design.

On May 21, 2020, Mnet reverted its logo back to its former design with Social distancing animations.

Controversies

Boycotting incidents and voter fraud at MAMA

Produce 101 series & Idol School voting manipulation

Remix of Islamic call to prayer

On August 24, 2021, Mnet's new dance survival show "Street Woman Fighter" premiered. The opening music was a remix of Adhan, the Islamic call to prayer, and many found this offensive. On September 9, the "Street Woman Fighter" production team apologized and said they would re-upload the video with replacement music. They promised to be more careful and continue to listen to viewers' opinions in the future.
