The award-giving body continued to use the name " Korean Music Festival" (MKMF) for the fourth consecutive year.[1] It was also the fourth time for the event to take place at the Little Angels Arts Center, Seoul, South Korea, while the grand awards (or daesang) were still the Best Popular Music Video and Music Video of the Year. During its fourth year, however, Cha Tae-hyun was not able to host the event; Shin Dong-yup replaced him instead.[2]

The theme for the year's event was "Be the Reds!", which was popularized during the 2002 FIFA World Cup. During the event, the young Yoo Seung-ho presented an award, while Japanese rock singer Hyde was the first Japanese to perform on the ceremony.
