YG Entertainment decides not to participate in '2016 MAMA'

Artists of YG Entertainment will not be attending the '2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards'.

The main cause behind their absence has been named as hectic schedules. Big BangPsy, and Sechskies are all due for comebacks in December, and are currently busily wrapping up album productions and preparing for concerts. Attending '2016 MAMA', expected to occur for a total of 3 days, will be too excessive for the top YG artists.

A rep of YG explained, "'MAMA' opened up online voting on December 1, and we don't know if there's the possibility of winning an award yet. However, even if we do get invited, it's been decided that it would be impossible to prepare a performance for the award show." 

The rep then emphasized that YG's absence was not caused by any conflict between the label and Mnet, and said, "We hope there won't be any speculations or misunderstandings."

This decision by YG Entertainment only applies to the '2016 MAMA'. You'll still be able to spot YG artists attending other end-of-year award ceremonies!

I feel bad for BP..

Yeah, ok YG. Don't let BLACKPINK perform on MAMA and jeopardize their career! You've fucked with WINNER, and now you're gonna fuck with BLACKPINK? FUCK YOU YG!

I may got it about BB. But what about BP? Ikon? All of them suddenly have hectic schedule? there is no misunderstanding  - Its fishy as hell

Kimchilover194 stany19 Sunday, November 27, 2016

I agree 100% with this. TOO FISHY

There's literally no point in arguing or complaining about this. Accept it and MOVE ON. It's YG Entertainment ffs

YoUrAvErAgEVIP Wednesday, November 23, 2016

I'm pissed but at the same time we don't need our YG artist passing out because their being over worked..

kookay09 YoUrAvErAgEVIP Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Over worked? I mean... that's arguable. But there are artists in YG that want to work more! WINNER, Lee Hi, AKMU! Zion T haven't released shit since he's joined! And One is back in the dungeon ever since he got eliminated from SMTM5 as expected of YG! I'm so furious with YG's management and marketing "strategies", it's not even funny anymore!

Sweetie please eat a snickers your not you when your hungry

That "comeback" would have been better if you actually got the grammar, sentence structure, whatever, right. It's "you're" not "your"

Kimchilover194 YoUrAvErAgEVIP Saturday, November 26, 2016

I 100% Agree with Kookay09! Where is AKMU? They had a 2 songs this year (Re-Bye and How People Move). LeeHi also did! She had 2 as well! iKON too. Just because of Big Bang, everyone else is meaningless? But about BLACKPINK they are in the lead for Best New Female Group! Are they going to be "no show" for said "BUSY SCHEDULE", it's their debut year, shouldn't they be there to accept their award? I'm fine with no performance, but seriously I'm disappointed if they are and they aren't there to accept it....

being worked ... who?

ChrisF01 Wednesday, November 23, 2016

YG artists will be missed. I just think there is more to it than the excuse. Common guys the date of award night has been known months ago and some of the other agencies have prepared something. Maybe there are not busy? I highly doubt it. Canceled hotel bookings sponsored by Hotels Combined. Yikes!

LAFF92 Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Looks like YG will just sit this one out, well  for anti YG artists, think about it this way, your oppas will have a chance to seat in the front and more screen time since Bigbang won't be there. Be Positive! lol. Fighting!

Whhhhhhhhhyyyyyyy? I've been waiting BLACKPINK to perform at MAMA for the very first time. But then they can't join? Why o whhhyyyyy?

Kimchilover194 Lee_Yann Saturday, November 26, 2016

I agree, they weren't even mentioned in this! BLACKPINK has every right to go, I'm fine even with no performance tbh. But if BP wins an award and they aren't there to accept I will be so disappointed and upset.

Lee_Yann Kimchilover194 Sunday, November 27, 2016

I'm sure BP can win the Best New Female Group. How disappointing, they can't perform or even join the MAMA 2016.

Kimchilover194 Lee_Yann Sunday, November 27, 2016

They're in the lead by quite a bit...

Park_Oppa Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Well more time and special stages for other artists/idols. Can't wait this yr Mama is going to be amazing. Also good luck to BB concert that's happening the same time as Mama.
