The 'Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)' discussed the absence of YG Entertainment's artists from the awards show this year. 


During a recent press conference for '2016 MAMA,' Kang Hee Jung, head of Mnet, talked about YG not attending the show, saying, "Artists usually are considerate of 'MAMA's schedule and date, and during that, we announce the candidates and attendees as we get ready." 

He added, "We do not discuss awards while we talk about who will attend. We try our best to have a fair and great show."

He also explained, "In regards to YG Entertainment, we expressed our desire for them to attend, and then heard that they could not come because of schedules abroad. We were sad to hear the news...we respect YG's decision." 


This year's 'MAMA' will take place in Hong Kong on December 2!

YG is an asshole #fuckYG. We can never forgive him for what he did to BOM, Minzy and 2ne1. I will boycott all YG products
