The 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) returned to Hong Kong this year, where the year′s biggest and brightest stars were honored and artists presented their hits through showstopping performances.
Many artists were honored tonight, but the highest honors went to Big Bang and EXO.
Big Bang received two of the three main awards, including UnionPay Song of the Year for Bang Bang Bang as well as UnionPay Artist of the Year.
On receiving the UnionPay Song of the Year award, Daesung said, “Thank you so much, Thank you for loving us for such a long time. As time goes by, I think these awards become more precious, so we will work hard not to betray these awards.”
T.O.P added, “The five of us are going on 10 years together, and we’ve received a lot of awards, but I want to thank our family and fans who have always supported us. Being a singer may look really flashy on the outside, but there are a lot of staff members who work hard behind the scenes.”
Big Bang returned to the stage to accept the UnionPay Artist of the Year award, where Taeyang said, “Thank you for such a big award. Like T.O.P hyung said earlier, we will soon be going on 10 years, and we sang a lot of songs and a lot happened, but I want to thank the fans who always cheered us on. And those who worked behind-the-scenes in order for us to win this great artist award, thank you. We will work harder to be an artist deserving of this award.”
Big Bang also received the HotelsCombined Best Music Video award and iQiYi Worldwide Favorite Artist award earlier in the night.
EXO took home the UnionPay Album of the Year for EXODUS, totaling four awards for the night as well.
Upon receiving the UnionPay Album of the Year award, Su Ho said, “Honestly, I think the size of an award doesn’t matter. We will show you that the person receiving the award makes it valuable.”
Chan Yeol said, “Thanks to EXO-L we had a happy year. There were happy times and hard times, but they say the ground packs after the rain, and we will be a firm EXO. Thank you for always trusting and loving us.”
In addition to the numerous awards given out tonight, the event was full of surprises, including a memorable 2NE1 reunion during CL′s set and artists from all over the world taking the stage this year, from Jolin Tsai to Pet Shop Boys, making for a truly unforgettable night.
