Rumors
Posted by emmamadison24 19 days ago

SM and YG will not be participating in MAMA this year



It looks like SM and YG will not be participating in MAMA this year.


Last year, none of the YG artists attended the award ceremony. This was odd considering PSY had made his comeback with his 8th regular album, Big Bang's GD had also released a solo album, WINNER and iKON also had busy promotions as well. Even their new girl group BLACKPINK had attracted great popularity with their comeback song 'As If It's Your Last'. However, at the '2017 MAMA' award ceremony, none of the YG singers received a single award in any of the categories.


In fact, YG has not participated in the MAMA's since the '2015 MAMA' that was held in Hong Kong. Organizers were sad that YG artists could not attend but they also respected YG's decision. The presence of YG artists at the MAMA's is the main reason a majority of the fans tuned in to watch the award ceremony. In fact, YG artists stages have been the most watched at any award ceremonies for the past couple of years. YG and its artists were the first to be known and made 'MAMA' main stream after it moved overseas from Korea. 'MAMA' is set up as the first music festival in Asia. YG singers are big and always made good use of the stages at MAMA. This is evidenced YouTube views of the past stages.


Among the top 10 performances of 'MAMA', the top seven stages are those of YG singers. The 'Good Boy' stage with GD and Taeyang came in first with over 25 million views, the second stage of BIG BANG in 2013, and the third stage of BIG BANG in 2015. The fourth place is the number of hits of 18.91 million in 2015 with the surprise stage of 2NE1. In 2013, the "growling" stage, which was named "MAMA" by EXO, came in fifth place, and the sixth place is BIG BANG's GD stage in 2013. Seventh place is BIG BANG's 'Fantastic Baby', 9th is 'Gangnam style' and 10th is GD's 'Trouble maker'.


At a glance, you can see that the most loved stage in 'MAMA' is YG's. A broadcasting official in 2016 said, "YG came up with the idea of showing a good stage, not just to get a prize for 'MAMA'. The stage of 'MAMA' was big and nice, and the artists of YG came out brightest on it. We won't be able to see the synergy of the two, so many people are sad, "he said.


What do you think of this issue? Will you be watching the 2018 MAMA without YG and SM?

I don't think people/fans realise that it's not about SM 'flopping' this year (srsly tho? some antifans can be so stupid) so they don't want to attend. SM, YG and even JYP have had disagreements with MNET since years ago, and MNET deserves it. They mistreat unpopular idols, and idolise popular idols and it's so obvious with their sudden interest in BTS. Like they are money hungry and fans of those favored groups are blindly accepting it. MNET have been unfair to so many groups during the past years and that's why companies are taking a stand against them. Newer immature fans should know that there's actual reasons for companies boycotting it, not that they 'flopped' so they won't receive any awards.

No disrespect but this isn't news; it's unsourced speculation. It should be labelled discussion or opinion. It's probably true since SM haven't promoted on Mnet recently and YG haven't in quite some time but 2/3 of your sources are old and 1 isn't even a source. SM isn't even mentioned in the body of the text.

this isn't a news site. people just post opinions on here now, rarely with researched facts, and never objective anymore. Even this post is full of support for YG, praising them, honoring them, without references or anything but w.e., and 0 SM info, but more importantly, nothing's objective here. It's a forum. I'm relying more on Soompi nowadays, but I've used this site since like 2012 so I come to check if i missed anything here afterwards. Such a shame that I have to make a transition now

Whilst I am with you on the Soompi front (they've always managed the trolls better as one massive positive and their content is far more encompassing and gives most artists and agencies a better deal), I wouldn't entirely write allkpop off.

This has potential. Most of the trolls have decided it's too much hassle to create multiple accounts so stick to trolling with the one account. There are a couple of notable exceptions.

In terms of users being able to upload their own content, it's not a bad idea as long as the admins keep on top of it and reassign contributions such as this to discussion rather than it parading as news when it is clearly anything but.

There's also the issue of antis down voting just because they don't like a group (which is clearly an issue at the moment - see Blackpink and Red Velvet related items). Antis also down voted a perfectly decent BoA article just because and the inoffensive EXO teasers because they're EXO. I know admins think that's going to change eventually but it probably won't - young fangirls and boys aren't going to change. Even so, I'm willing to see where this goes.

Although I agree that other people writing news articles would be cool to promote discussion, it's baseless. I don't know the process, but like, imagine if I were to post an article about BTS officially disbanding with photoshopped images and everything. I'm not saying there are, but the fact that I could have that power is what has written me off.

Additionally, the voting sucks, but i stick to the latest page (which isn't default no more, and that sucks a lot). In terms of trolls, I've never cared too much honestly, i just find them funny. But when anyone can post anything, it's no longer news, it's a forum, or a blogpost. and that's what most articles have been. No articles are at all objective or factually accurate (the bit about Black Nut getting sentenced was one of the big ones recently, cause he didn't GET sentenced, KittiB's party SAUGHT a sentence), and that's dangerous for news. And that post was purely some dude sliming over KittiB and holding himself in about Black Nut being a douche, and hidden in the gunk of supportive slime was some things I did not know.

You can't call yourself news if you have that roaming on your site.

ok i guess this is the final straw for me quitting allkpop. i mean anyone can post stuff and have it be an "article"? really? Even the grammar and style of this just shows its from someone who doesn't even really know how to write and is completely biased. I don't even care about the actual content of this, but this is just low quality stuff. Might as well go to Tumblr if i want to see this kind of "journalism"

I haven't watched MAMA since 2015. Rating of MAMA has dropped a lot already. YG already had a bad relationship with Mnet now SM is joining too. I don't know the reason behind it but CJ Entertainmen is probably not innocent. Cj Entertainmen is actually becoming too big and monopoly in entertainment industry. They control Mnet,tvN and other cable TV's, Mama ,KCON and also numerous agencies are under Cj Ent. Don't forget that CJ group is conglomerate and was part of Samsung group until 90s. (CJ groups director is grandson of Samsung founder,this family is the most powerful family in Korea) They can do anything, like blocking others and pushing artists of their agencies in the future. Basically other agencies have no chance but kiss CJ's ass in current situation.All those delulu fans that are dissing YG and SM,they have to think again. They can't block BTS yet but they can block every other new groups from any agency. So BigHit has to bow to them anyway.Even YG and SM is nothing compared to power of CJ but they must be really pissed at something to act like this. At least big3 has big brand name under them if not power and money, they have to step up if something fishy is going on.

Not getting to see Kai, Taemin, Jimin in one frame.....this is sad. Suho & V's interaction or Suga & Chanyeol hugging each other. These are such good memories I have of EXO & BTS. Would have loved to see their performances.

At the the end of the day its fans loss, since we wont get to watch some great performances. Ikon will win SOTY. This will boost their confidence. Daesangs are really important to artists. This will help them strive harder. BTS will win AOTY three years in a row which itself will be a record.

I am not much aware of the girl groups though. I recognize Black Pink and their song Du Du Du is good.

I really like IU and her latest single was just superb

Super Junior performing...WoW

Aah all of this is in my head. Just thinking about all the performances is making me happy. I wish they come irrespective of 3 days event. Doesnt matter. Its for the fans so I think its okay

Why Mnet keeps having problems with Entertainment companies , This is not the First time i mean there is a long history of boycotts by SM. Mnet needs to understand that their show is incomplete if the most popular artist dont attend because this Award show will look more BTS ASIAN MUSIC AWARDS (btw i love BTS) but honestly it will look like an BTS award show if other artists dont show up.

well we already know that if you fuck YG over he WILL make you suffer for that shit. and thats why i like him. he doesn't tolerate bullshit. so i dont feel sorry for them. if they ran afoul of YG they should accept their punishment


also, in terms of sm, if memory serves me correctly, mama fucked exo over numerous times and just gives everything to bts anyway. its not like we can expect sm artists to get fair treatment at mama, so they dont need to come either. fuck that show. let it go right into the trash


its only going to be "the bts show" anyway, so why should anyone good show up? They could rest with that time


now if only god7, godstax, and heaventeen would boycott too. that would be real justice

I guess it all comes down to money and time. Can they justify the expense and time constraints. Maybe, maybe not.

Every1 alrdy know who is going to win big when they announce MAMA in Japan. MAMA is all about giving awards to big fandom so I dun think they give a fuck even if SM and YG artist are not attending, the place will still be jam pack and they are still going to earn alot of money.

CJ-E&M Agency (owns MNET TV = MAMA Awards) and the Big3 Agencies (SMe ; YGe ; JYPe) are simply NOT on that 'friendly' a terms situation at this point in time. They are basically DIRECT COMPETITORS. The (once an MNET TV slogan) 'MUSIC MAKES ONE' fakey behavior is pretty much 'played out' now in the K-pop Music Industry. JYP 'himself' answers MUCH more to a BOARD OF DIRECTORS and STOCKHOLDERS now at JYPe Corporation. These 'Awards' probably need to be handled MORE by something (Industry Group Entity) that at least SEEMS to be more NEUTRAL in viewpoint than CJ-E&M Agency is ... Plus, MAMA seems the *ASIAN* Music Awards that ONLY S.KOREANS mostly WIN them ... ;)

Exoflop couldn't even sell a 12k venue in singapore last march. While bts sold a 50k stadium in less that 4 hours. Lmao


And btw, a 20k venue in manila is not even sold out where exoflop will perform tomorrow. So stop stanning a garbage. Lmao
