2008 MTV Asia Awards in Malaysia

Read our entries on the 2008 MTV Awards Asia here! Super Junior Press Conference, Red Carpet pics and more...

Finally, Malaysia is about to see some (almost?) guaranteed K-pop action, thanks to the 2008 MTV Asia Awards.

Coming soon: The MTV Asia Awards is set to rock Malaysia

The prestigious pan-regional music event is going to be held right in our backyard folks, at the Arena of Stars in Genting - City of Entertainment.

Genting Highland is Malaysia's "sin city" as it's famous for its casinos. The city on a hill is also known for its haunted hotels as many have committed suicide after losing big - probably their life savings - at the casinos. Hmm, I don't make a very good spokesperson for the place, huh?

Anyway, Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars will be hosting the August 2nd event.

Jared Leto: 'It's an honour to be a part of what I'm sure will be an exciting and
unforgettable night in a magical and beautiful country. MTV has been an important
home for 30 Seconds to Mars throughout our worldwide journey. I am very proud to
join everyone in such a unique and gorgeous location like Malaysia. It is going to be a
crazy and wonderful night.'


This will be the first time the event - which is now in its 6th edition - is held in Malaysia. Previously, the party was held in Singapore (thrice) and Bangkok (twice).

There's a category for our beloved K-pop acts called the Favourite Artist Korea and the nominees are: Big Bang, Sonyeoshidae, Wonder Girls and Super Junior. Wow, power to the K-pop groups!

The online poll has started and it ends on July 25.

The winning K-pop act will most likely be performing at the event. Past winners of the category include Rain (2005) and Se7en (2006). Apparently, there was no award ceremony in 2007 - oh, really. Why?

Who do you think deserves the award this year? Personally, I would like Big Bang to win and subsequently come and perform here in Malaysia! That'd be awesome!


Big Bang ain't tellin' no Lies when they say they are
nominated for the award


Sonyeoshidae ain't gettin much love these days
back home in Korea...will they be showered with affection
from other parts of Asia?


Earlier this year, it was announced that the Super Junior boys will be coming to
Malaysia for a concert. No confirmation on that so far, so this event could probably
be the only time Malaysian fans get to watch them live.


Will Wonder Girls be So Hot enough to sizzle their way
to the awards ceremony?

Oooh, I just voted Big Bang at the MTV Asia Awards site. It looks like a fight between Big Bang and Super Junior. Me gonna vote Big Bang again in 10 minutes. Hee hee hee....

Valerie said...

cool! i was wondering if you gals were gonna post on this.
my bet is for big bang all the way! but i wouldn't mind if wonder girls won. but i think big bang would definitely deserve it for all the hard work they've done. i mean, wonder girls have worked hard as well but i think big bang has contributed so so much to their music-not just vocal wise-and fans that they should win. but ugh, i would want to see wonder girls perform 'tell me' at the ceremony! this is gon' be an awesome awards show! i hope they can broadcast it in the US like they do with the euro mtv awards!
k-popped gals, who do you want to win for favorite artist malaysia? hope you guys can go to the live event!! jared leto is a hottie too...in an emo, black eye-liner sorta way.

Super Junior doesnt deserve this award. it was big bang and wonder girls that made 2007 one of the best years for music. Big bang Lies was #1 for like 7 weeks and wonder girls tell me, that was a phenomenon in korea and in other parts of asia. tell me and lies were the big hits. super junior's song dont don, well i dont here much about that. if they win, people are ignoring true talent

Cruella DeVille said...

BIG BANG!!!!

Bang bang bang . . .

Honestly I like SuperJunior and WonderGirls, but I really feel great appreciation for BigBang's talent and contribution to the Korean Music Industry.

Like seriously, they're international level baby!
This group's got the potential Rain and Se7en kind of thing.
