Decked Out Korean Stars Attend the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong

The 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) took place this week in Hong Kong, gathering together the popular Korean stars of music and acting. It’s basically Hallyu-palooza staged by Korean entertainment conglomerate CJ E&M. The lead up has been pretty hyped since one K-star after another was snapped at the airport leaving to attend the ceremony. The fashion was decent and reportedly the performances were all solid, which isn’t hard to pull off with the star power present. Big Bang and EXO were the biggest winners of the night, no surprise since both male idol groups continue to rake in the cash from album sales and tours this year. Since I’m not a K-pop aficionado, a shindig like this makes me interested in all the juicy stuff happening behind the scenes and checking out the various threads adorning the stars in front of the cameras.

Decked Out Korean Stars Attend the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong — 27 Comments

  1. and this award turned into fanwar haha, between YG stans VS SM stans. but those artists were so pretty even not so into their latest fashion style.

    ps : bigbang is my fave fashion disaster… no doubt!

  2. Gong Hyojin is so freaking cool, I don’t think any other Korean actress has the idgaf air that she has. She seems like someone you’d have fun with.

    • I agree. Korean actresses don’t usually look like they have even a glancing acquaintance with cool but GHJ has it, all right.

  3. Lol such an irony when you have park shin hye and snsd Seohyun photos side by side. I remember those dark days when i have quite a headache at all the shipper fights going on.

  4. I really like Park Shin Hye’s dress, it’s a bit 2000s Miu Miu-like? Covered up but still cute. And I also like what the girl in yellow in the top pic is wearing, it works quite nicely to wear such a cheerful colour to play down the effect of thing high boots.

    btw koala are you going to do a post about the November box office in Korea? It’s interesting to see Lee Byung Hun rise again after a year of being hated by the public, while far more hyped movies flop.

    • I agree, it seems like his pants got torn/stained on the way so he borrowed from a tall guy.
      I don’t like PSY’s dress, makes her more professional and babyish. I am a big fan of her, just give her age appropriate gowns.

    • yeah at least these guys are a LOT more colourful than the actor red carpets lol.

      Even among the few ‘formal’ full-length dresses I see one is bright red (Taeyeon). It also has the best cut of the lot, it fits her beautifully.

  5. TaeYeon and Kim So Eun look great, but other than those two, I’m kind of disappointed in the K-Celebs fashion this year. The Chinese Celebs have really rocked the carpet with classier and more sophisticated looks.

    • Well, actually TaeYeon looks the best. Kim So Eun keeps playing it safe with black… which even though it suits her is boring.

  6. After looking at the Chinese Gala photos and MAMA photos. Boy there is a difference… Korea you disappoint me. However Shinee’s style and the Actors and some Actresses look really nice
