Hong Kong was home – for one night only – to some of South Korea’s biggest K-pop stars on Friday as the city hosted the 10th Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA).

Joining them were some internationally familiar stars including the American singer Janet Jackson – who received the worldwide inspiration award at the ceremony.
