One of the biggest end-of-the-year awards, the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), is coming soon and fans are a-buzz as to which stars are attending. But don’t expect YG Entertainment to attend.
According to an executive level personnel at YG Entertainment, the agency is currently not certain whether any of their artists will be attending this year’s MAMA. As to the reason why? No official invitation has been received by Mnet officials.
It should be noted that large international events usually undergo preparations well before two months before the official date, thus preparations for MAMA should be already underway.
The officials continues, “There has been no official recruit attempts for YG artists including BIGBANG. Since it is usual for these preparations to begin well before 2months from the event, it is unclear whether YG artists will be showing at the ‘2015 MAMA.’ It is odd how no talks of appearance or the stage itself has yet to be brought up.”
There’s no doubt that YG artists have been pretty active this year with Jinusean‘s comeback after over a decade of hiatus and BIGBANG dominating more than half the year with their MADE single series followed by iKON.
The 2015 MAMA is set for December 2nd and will take place in Hong Kong. Voting will begin on October 30th.
