The first music award ceremony of the year, the 2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) seems to be a rather ‘colorless’ and meaningless event, with the absence of some of the big stars in the Kpop industry.

The 2010 MAMA will be held at The Venetian Macau Hotel’s Cotai Arena in Macau at 7.00pm KST on November 28th. Although their names are in the list of nominees, some of these artists will be appearing on music program, SBS Inkigayo instead.
