AKB48 at MAMA 2009!

The girls of AKB48 have done it again and this time they are invading MAMA (MNET Asia Music Awards) in Seoul. They won some type of award, I would tell you what that award is, but I can’t read Korean well. I bet it was probably along the lines of ‘Best female group from Japan‘ or something. They won the “Asian Recommend” award.

Anyways, its good to see that the group is prospering. Although the Korean groups they show in the video look like they are at a total loss as to why there are 12 girls on stage, I think some of them actually enjoyed them. They should be happy not all the girls were there. Then they’d just be baffled. The song they sang was “River.”

Notice how they panned in and out to the Korean artists. Taecyeon of group 2PM was seen counting how many girls on stage. While some say that, we say this. Taecyeon was actually pointing out to a fellow member of 2PM, which ones he liked and wanted to do. But then he got caught and stopped. I’m sure Taecyeon went home, looked up the group and found out he has more of selection. Well hopefully it leads to 2PM going to Japan and then you find out Taecyeon hooked up with a member or two… or three… or if luck would have it four. Just kidding.

Also, I just realized (more like found out) why AKB48’s promotions in US went so well and why they are at MAMA… they’re company is managed by a Korean. It explains the “Korean playbook”.
