Word on the street: It won’t be Raining at the MAMAs?

Word is that it won’t be MBLAQing, either.

We can’t say we’re surprised, if this is true.  When details about this year’s Mnet Asian Music Awards first hit the Blogosphere, we warned against automatically assuming that Rain would be there, only because of the mess that had been created by the awards ceremony being moved out of S. Korea, and the artists that bailed from the jump because of schedule conflicts.

Don’t get us wrong — we understand the Powers That Be wanting to create a more global feel with a gesture of goodwill to the rest of the world.  Nothing wrong with that at all.  But geez, look at the consequences — a bunch of the most popular artists around can’t even be there now.  Which means a hell of a lot of fans aren’t going to bother watching, and those numbers are going to add up.

What a disappointment, thinking of JiHoon winning awards and not being able to watch him receive them.  He kicked some music tail this year.  But heck, his hands are tied.  His schedule is his schedule and he can’t just run off with The Fugitive: Plan B on the air but not yet “in the can.”  Hopefully Mnet does some long, hard thinking about this and comes up with much better options for next year’s show.

» You can read POPSEOUL!’s take on it HERE, where they ask, if there’s no Rain (Bi), then is it really a 2010 awards show?

Rain won’t be present at the 2010 MAMA, which probably makes it less meaningful

Singer and actor Rain will be absent for 2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) to be held in Hotel Cotai Arena, Venetian, Macau. on the 28th.

Because of the schedule of drama ‘Fugitive Plan B’ where he has given an impassioned performance as the lead in this drama, he won’t be able to attend 2010 MAMA.

Meanwhile, 2NE1, MissA, 2PM, etc. will attend the awards ceremony, but ‘Super Junior’, Girl Generation, SHINee, etc. will not show up.
