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.
Also there was Chinese singer and actress Angelababy, who wowed social media users with her gorgeous pale understated dressed, and Singaporean singer and actor JJ Lin.
