[+ 404, – 27] They don’t even do music shows properly now they’re going to use an end of 2015 ceremony as a comeback stage for TWO of their artists???? Isn’t this rude? Do comeback stages on M Countdown why would they use MAMA awards for this.

[+ 308, – 49] As a Big Bang fan this annoys me. Big Bang had many hits this year and promoted alot so they deserve to go on the show. But YG keeps using Big Bang to promote their other artists. I don’t understand the come back stages at MAMA. Big Bang always gets used and than gets criticized for everything YG does.

[+ 306, – 15] They’re going to get all their artists to perform and media play saying that MAMA was a YG concert.
