The Mnet Asian Awards (MAMA) is one of the biggest music events in the K-Entertainment industry. This awards ceremony brings together various artists in K-Music to honor their hard work. However, this year a bunch of big groups won’t be attending.
Unfortunately, due to busy schedules, the YG Entertainment artists cannot attend the MAMA’s this year. The ceremony will be taking place on December 2 at the Asia World Expo, in Hong Kong.
Many YG artists have been nominated for MAMA 2016 awards, including new girl group, BLACKPINK, who are nominated for the New Female Artist Award. Alongside the rookies, PSY, Lee Hi and iKON have also all been nominated for the Artist of the Year Award.
PSY, BIGBANG and Sechs Skies are all working hard and preparing for their comebacks in December, hence they are not attending the ceremony.
The YG Family will be surely missed at this year’s event!
Stay tuned to Officially KMUSIC for more updates!
