Mnet Asia Music Awards 2009

Ser estranger en un país com Corea del Sud a vegades pot tenir molts avantatges. Un d'ells és que com a estudiant estranger, alguns esdeveniments requereixen cares occidentals, i per això ens conviden a assistir a rodatges de programes de televisió.

Being a foreigner in a country like South Korea may have many advantages. One is that as a foreign student, some events require western faces and they invite you to attend the filming of television shows.

Dissabte, un grup d'estudiants vam anar als Mnet Asia Music Awards (MAMA), una cerimònia de lliurament de premis als grups i artistes més exitosos de l'any al més pur estil MTV Awards. Mnet és el que seria l'MTV d'Asia: Un canal per cable dedicat a la música. Catifa vermella, grans estrelles (de Corea, està clar), espectacular escenari, pantalles gegants, i molta llum i colors.

Last Saturday, a group of students went to Mnet Asia Music Awards (MAMA), an awards ceremony to the most successful artists of the year just like MTV Awards style. Mnet is what would be the MTV Asia: A cable channel specialized in music. Red carpet, great stars (from Korea, of course), spectacular stage, giant screens, and lot of light and colors.

La gala es va celebrar al Jamsil Sports Complex, una zona on hi ha l'estadi olímpic i diversos recintes ideals per aquesta mena d'esdeveniments.
Sense haver d'esperar en cap cua per entrar, els convidats estrangers vam anar directament a una entrada prop de l'escenari. I tant a prop! L'escenari era obert a dues bandes, i nosaltres estàvem a la part posterior, és a dir, en la majoria de lliurament de premis i en algunes actuacions els artistes ens donaven l'esquena.

The event was held at the Jamsil Sports Complex, an area where the stadium and several Olympic venues are located, ideal for such events.
Without waiting in any queue to enter, the foreign guests went directly to a place near the stage. And so close! The stage was open to both sides, and we were on the back, so, in most of the performances and award givings we saw artist's back.

Les actuacions més destacades de la nit van ser les de Kara i Brown Eyed Girls actuant amb una remescla de Mister i Abracadabra (un dels millors temes per mi), les 2NE1 amb el seu conegut I Don't Care amb una versió més aviat fluixeta (després de la versió reggae i la versió dance...era difícil de superar), G-Dragon amb una performance molt bona de Heartbreaker i acabant amb un duet amb Taeyang, un altre membre de Big Bang, la controvertida Ivy amb el seu Touch Me, i l'esperat retorn dels 2PM (sense Jaebeom) amb el seu Heartbeat i Again & Again.

The highlight performances of the night were Kara and Brown Eyed Girls' with some remix of Mister + Abracadabra (one of the best tracks for me), 2NE1 with their famous I Don't Care with a not very good version (after release reggae and dance version ... it was difficult to go better), G-Dragon did a very good performance of Heartbreaker and ending with a duet with Taeyang, another member of Big Bang, also Ivy was amazing with her controversial Touch Me, and the expected return of 2PM (without Jaebeom) with Heartbeat and Again & Again.


Brown Eyed Girls + Kara - Abracadabra+Mister


2PM - Heartbeat, Again & Again


Ivy - Touch Me
