I’m like sitting here contemplating over who will attend the MAMAs and who won’t…
…and I’m not sure about anything anymore, really. Apart from the artists confirmed by Mnet/their respective agencies.
So everyone’s like: “EXO’s gonna win, since…SM.” but then again, SM has made no move to confirm their attendance for MAMAs, same goes for SHINee, TTS and f(x) and DBSK. When they have confirmed SJ loooong ago.
BAP is supposedly confirmed to attend though, and we all know the MAMAs are a no-attendance-no-award kind of Show (unless there are categories of which none of the nominated artists attends).
I’m 100% sure 2NE1 won’t attend cause press conference during the same time-slot. So that list going around is fake (it’s actually for the MAMA LINE Awards, which is a …what-do-I-know-some-special-award that’s going to be decided during the show…the list were the nominees for that award. PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT CAPABLE OF KOREAN SHOULD JUST NOT RELEASE INFORMATION AS CONFIRMED SERIOUSLY.)
As for my THOUGHTS about the artists not yet confirmed to attend but also not yet confirmed to not attend (lol?XD):
(Although only the ones I actually have a thought on. xD)
Infinite: Don’t know, but probably not, cause Sunggyu Solo and stuff. Though he might go and prerecord, I give him that one.
B2ST: Most likely not since it’s confirmed Yoseob will make his Solo Debut next Friday, which is the day of the MAMAs. Sure, they could still come without him, but I guess they’d want to support him and also: How to perform without their main vocal? Well, yeah.
SNSD TTs: I doubt it. I just doubt SM holds a subgroup for important enough to kind of put a halt on all SNSD group activities for 2-3 days. :/
EXO: Hmmm…even though there’s no confirmation yet, I’m pretty sure they will attend. I can’t see SM having them let go that Rookie Award which they can only receive once in a lifetime…hmm. No. But then again…why is BAP confirmed?
SHINee: Ughhhx100000000. Totally don’t know about this. With the way the voting stands right now, either them or SJ might win the Best Dance Performance Award. And if these supposed judges and researchers are even a tad bit “PROFESSIONAL” (uhuu, Shawols, see what I did there), I guess SHINee would be taking home that award. But then again, ONLY if they attend. IF they do. Which I am totally not sure about…they might be. I mean they don’t have a schedule on Nov.30th or any of the days before or after. Actually, between tomorrow’s SMT Bangkok and Dec. 8th’s SWC II Singapore, there’s absolutely NOTHING. Enough time for them to rehearse for a special stage during next week as well.
BUT THEN AGAIN…after that disaster involving the HK media they had at that Etude House Event last time around…I’m not sure anymore. I mean, the MAMAs are being held in Hong Kong after all. So not sure. NOT. AT. ALL. OTL
f(x): Don’t know. :/ I mean they’re first in 2 polls, but then again, their competitors in those categories, KARA and miss A, have confirmed their attendance. So maybe no f(x) after all? Though I don’t see why SM would not send them…it’s not like they’re boycotting the MAMAs. SJ is going, aren’t they?
BoA: Will probably go. Nothing speaks against it so…yeah. :)
TVXQ: I don’t see why they wouldn’t be going, so probably going as well.
EDIT: LOL I totally forgot about their Repackage CB next week. Unless their first broadcasted performance of Humanoids will be during the MAMAs (which would be epic), they probably won’t. :(
But yeah, you notice, this leaves a lot of confusion in many categories. For example, if Infinite isn’t attending, and SHINee and Beast aren’t, and I don’t see any news of MBLAQ attending…Will SJ receive that Best Dance Performance Award? Cause if so…
Sorry, I’m an ELF, but I will still flip MNET okay.
Cause…yeah. SJ can win any other category for all I care, but not that one.
Yeah. Rant over. Just had to write that down LOL
