the 2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards Winners (Who Are These People?)

BIGBANG beat out Psy at the 2012 Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong November 30th, 2012. A Five and a half hour extravaganza featuring many, many, many people you have never heard of missing Jenelle and G-Dragon, two of the few I've actually heard of. Wait a second, FIVE AND A HALF HOURS??? 

Controversy surrounds Psy losing to BIGBANG and while aesthetically they made the right move, Psy singlehandedly put K-Pop on the map and is obviously the only recognizable figure in the entire scene unless you live in Asia. 

Here are the MAMA contestants with the winner in highlight (not all of them, I lost interest half way through). Who knew…
