On November 29th, Mnet hosted its 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards (‘MAMA‘) at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, attracting stars and performers from both Korea and around the world.
On November 29th, 4minute‘s HyunA and B2ST‘s Hyunseung shocked their fans with a racy stage at the ‘2011 MAMA‘ in Singapore — a stage that included a long, steamy kiss.
HyunA and Hyunseung brought out a risque performance to introduce their new project duo, ‘Trouble Maker‘. Dressed up in evening gowns and suits, the two danced provocatively against a moon-lit background.
Fans went wild over their very intimate choreography, which had Hyunseung touching HyunA’s legs, HyunA jumping onto Hyunseung and wrapping her legs around his waist, and finishing off with a passionate embrace.

Earlier, we reported on YG Entertainment’s concerns about 2NE1‘s Park Bom, whose throat condition was less than optimal due to a severe flu. As such, officials had stated that Bom may not be able to sing live at the ‘2011 MAMA’ in Singapore.
However, on the morning of November 28th, Bom herself made an announcement through Twitter, telling fans that her health has improved and that she will be singing at the awards ceremony. She tweeted, “Bom’s voice might still be a bit husky, but she will be singing live!~~~~~*^____^*”.
She continued, “Don’t worry! I’m taking my meds and eating and resting well for tomorrow! Fighting!! Fighting yayaya!!!!!”
