SME announced on November 3rd that their artistes including Super Junior, SNSD, SHINee and f(x) will not be attending MAMA.
- The reason given was that MAMA will be using a process similar to how MNET’s music program M! Countdown selects its winners, and SME does not trust the method nor believe that it is fair.
- This latest statement comes as SME does not trust in M! Countdown because of what happened with SNSD’s massive hit Gee.
SME thus feel that MNET’s method of deciding on their winners cannot be trusted.
- SME feels that fans of SME’s artistes should not be spending too much money just to cast votes for their favourite artistes and has hence asked MNET to withdraw SME’s artistes from the categories for which they are nominated in MAMA.
