All the artists of YG Entertainment will not attend “2016 MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards)”.
According to a broadcasting insider, YG has decided not to attend this year’s MAMA to be held on December 2 at AWE (AsiaWorld-Expo) in Hong Kong and asked for MAMA’s understanding for their nonattendance.
YG’s BIGBANG, PSY, and SECHSKIES are to release new songs in this December, so they are now busy with working on their new albums and practicing for upcoming concerts. As they cannot make time to attend MAMA staying for three days overseas, YG decided on nonattendance at MAMA. Accordingly, BLACKPINK who is thought to be one of the strongest candidates for MAMA’s rookie of the year award for this year has also decided not to stand on the stage of MAMA.
