YG Entertainment announced, “MAMA’s voting will continue until December 1st, so we’re unsure about anything related to awards. Even if we decide to attend now, we won’t be able to prepare for the award ceremony stages.” BIG BANG, Psy, and Sechs Kies are all finishing up their new albums and end of the year concerts. The artists were unable to clear their schedules for a 3-day trip out abroad.

A source revealed that end of the year awards usually finish their final lineup 2 months before the big date. However, with only 10 days left of the actual show, MAMA has yet to secure a confirmed final list of attendees.

YG asks for no misunderstanding to arise from their decision as the sole reason for their absence will be due to the artists’ individual schedules and has no connection to the relationship between the label and Mnet. YG is confirmed to appear on the other award ceremonies as planned.
