SM & YG to both skip MAMA this year (Unconfirmed by Agencies)

Both agencies haven't officially confirmed it but SM is booking their act shows in other countries around the MAMA dates and YG have participated on and off for a while now.

+ From the moment they announced that ABK48 was coming, it was bound to fail, it's not like it's a Japanese award showㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ And they have 0 f*cking prestige

+ I don't even want to watch MAMA anymore ㅠ It's not because of the singers, but they're basically splitting everything in 3 instead of letting everyone do one time

+ There's nothing to watch this year.. Seriously sajaegi killed everything.. There won't be any songs that muggles like here and there will be no "normal" singers either

+ Why will it be boring if YG and SM don't attend?? ㅋㅋ Seems like a diss to the other singers

+ Wow finally it's worth watching

Although I will miss NCT, Red Velvet (possibly Shinee), and Blackpink performing I'm not too disappointed in this.

I had an inkling it would happen anyway, BTS pretty much dominated this year so I assume they are going home with the bigger awards.
It would probably be a waste of time for YG and SM to send the majority of their groups.

At least it will give more performance/screen time and possibly awards to idols from smaller companies. Hopefully.

SM has clearly had some issues with MNET since this summer given that Red Velvet and NCT skipped Mcountdown.Plus their relationship has always been kind of frosty since the boycott of 2009 so I'm not surprised.Even last year there was issues with a portion of EXO's performance being cut last minute.

I just hope MNET can put aside the pettiness to give Jonghyun the male soloist award he deserves

sm of course has had their long-standing beef with mnet that seemed to get revved up again this year what with sm not sending their artists to mcountdown since power up-era, so I’m not surprised but I’m very pleased.

more time for my faves to prepare their performance stages for the gayos.

I mean there will be everyone else there so I’ll be watching.

I wasn’t very impressed with what SME and YGE put out (except for SHINee) this year so I guess we’ll all get over it.

I know I'll be the only one but considering the only artist I could possibly miss from SM is Boa and Shinee, I'll go with "and nothing of value will be lost" here.

thank god most of my faves are from sm, can't wait to enjoy a stress-free awards season this year

i have a feeling that at least one of those companies is just testing the water and teasing mnet
anyway if their artists really don't attend maybe other artists will have a chance to appear or have longer stages than usual

This would be pretty cool. A lot of smaller agencies had good sized hits this year - I would love to see Shaun perform, but given the allegations against his song, that might be a bad idea...

But there are a lot of breakthrough groups who could crush a slot like this. Immediately I'm thinking this would be great exposure for an Imfact or a LOONA. Bring out a trot artist, go wild! Piss off YG and bring on Bom!

yg not attending isn't surprising, but i wonder what happened with sm. but is there a source for this beside a pann article?

Eh, MAMA is little more than a glorified music show at this point.
youtubelargo 25th-Oct-2018 06:40 pm (UTC)
Maybe Red Velvet can get some fucking rest then.

Would have been nice to see YG and SM artists at MAMA, especially cause they hold it in Korea this year....
