1. [+1,572, -128] Seriously soooooo~~~ much more fun than the SBS Gayo Daejun... and it was touching at moments too and had a lot more fun things to watch!!
2. [+1,188, -87] The KBS Gayo Festival has always been the type of ceremony that you could watch with family so it was great... it's not too childish ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+1,119, -101] A million times better than SBS
4. [+1,105, -140] SHINee's live was amazing
5. [+537, -56] There was a lot to watch but please don't let Seolhyun MC again... "Yes, that, was, very, touching" she totally brought down the mood of the show ㅋㅋㅋ
6. [+417, -41] Most of the singers in the second half like INFINITE and SHINee were practically singing live and totally broke through the sound system
7. [+350, -35] Jung Eunji, Shinhwa, Mamamoo, SHINee all had amazing lives... a million times better than SBS ㅋㅋㅋ great job to everyone, it was really fun
8. [+405, -55] Everyone in the SM line pulled off great lives today ㅋㅋ EXO, SHINee, Taeyeon's class
1. [+477, -27] So much better than the SBS Gayo Daejun
2. [+395, -31] A lot better than SBS but I wouldn't say it was that good on its own
3. [+288, -8] Basically a combination of a festival + Music Bank
4. [+281, -28] Just seemed like another Music Bank episode ㅋㅋ EXO was singing live but the sound quality was so bad
5. [+72, -1] SBS is always the first ceremony and they always get hate and they never listen and fix where they went wrong
6. [+75, -3] The MR volume was so low that I thought it was a broadcast accident... only the teams that sang live were screwed over.
7. [+63, -4] There was no broadcast accident, the singers just weren't given their in-ears ^^
8. [+81, -10] Can you please give the singers their in-ears?
Article: Park Bogum x Irene's 'Music Bank' chemistry
Source: Mydaily via Naver
1. [+7,270, -226] These two should've been the MCs!!!!!
2. [+5,852, -166] They really should've let Irene MC with him...
3. [+4,669, -148] Their chemistry is a wall
4. [+4,236 ,-125] Amazing chemistry... just totally lifted the mood up together ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ why oh why did they not give Irene the MC spot ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
5. [+1,365, -60] Good chemistry. Bogum looked a lot more comfortable with Irene around.
6. [+1,387, -75] KBS really needs to reflect on this. How do you have Irene and Bogum with perfect chemistry but make Seolhyun the MC? The biggest mistake ever
7. [+1,300, -58] Bogum looked so much more alive with Irene around, you really can't ignore a year of working together... with Seolhyun, he looked so anxious
8. [+1,135, -53] Should've made it Irene... really wanted to see them together
1. [+643, -33] Park Bogum proves he's got the acting chops. Never once looked at his script and he seemed to have memorized all the idol names because he never got them mixed up or wrong. Very professional.
2. [+641, -73] Seolhyun still lacks a lot of MCing skills.. maybe she was too nervous? She looked so stiff, her pronunciation too!!
3. [+520, -63] Seolhyun, please don't ever MC again in the future~~ her MCing is the type that brings down the mood of the show ㅠㅠ Bogum had to carry her
4. [+50, -7] Everything was great but... Seolhyun's tonality and pronunciation leave much to be desired ㅠㅠㅠ Bogum worked super hard though!!! Seolhyun-ssi, please don't MC again ㅠㅠㅠ she just looked like she was off doing her own thing. Out of consideration for the eyes and ears of the viewers, don't do it.. ㅠㅠ The mood just drops every time she comes up to say something... it's not a hate comment, just the opinion of a viewer
5. [+37, -14] Seolhyun was like a robot up there... so unnatural and stiff. She may be popular but MCing is not for her quite yet.
6. [+37, -6] Can Seolhyun please look forward at the camera!!
7. [+27, -14] Park Bogum's a good MC.. Seolhyun's pretty and did well but maybe Park Bogum was too natural that it made Seolhyun sound like she was reading out of a textbook
8. [+25, -8] Thought Seolhyun was reading out of a textbook...
Article: Twice x IOI x Girlfriend x Red Velvet, the trends get together for 'ITNW'
Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver
1. [+1,097, -63] 'ITNW'... such a good song
2. [+847, -86] It was really touching as a long time Sone to watch ㅠ it's been a while since I've heard the song... I wish SNSD would comeback soon too. Great job to the groups! Fighting!
3. [+682, -69] Putting all four groups on one stage shows what a ton of members there are ㅋㅋ but it was like a flower field, pretty faces everywhere
4. [+496, -22] Way too many people on stage, most of them barely got any camera time
5. [+671, -86] A stage fit for the trends...
6. [+235, -29] I bet Taeyeon felt happy watching this
7. [+219, -25] SNSD has already become a group where their debut song gets covered by junior groups... feels weird
8. [+163, -16] It would've been better for the groups to cover a different SNSD song separately instead of all at once like this
Article: "The legends!" Shinhwa attends first year-end ceremony in 9 years
Source: Mydaily via Nate
1. [+1,027, -27] Shinhwa's average age next year will be 38.5... most of the stages were lip synced but Shinhwa still sang live, as expected! Shinhwa jjang!!!
2. [+981, -38] They looked great... Sad that Shinhwa sang live while all the junior idols were lip syncing up a storm; why would you want to lip sync even at a festival? That's embarrassing
3. [+811, -18] Even as much time has passed, they still look great and their songs still sound good
4. [+90, -4] So many idols lately try to act so cool and sexy but Shinhwa doesn't have to try at all because it just comes to them naturally... and I was shocked at how good Lee Minwoo's live was
5. [+78, -2] So surprised at their pure live... makes you realize how much live singing has disappeared lately
6. [+76, -2] Back in Shinhwa's days, everyone lip synced but look at them still pull off the dance moves while singing live. Are all you lip syncing gold fishes watching? Be embarrassed of yourselves. You call yourselves singers but you'll find yourself unemployed the second your idol careers are over so get started on building those skills while you can.
7. [+70, -1] So different from the other stages with AR while they just open and close their mouths
8. [+61, -1] I hope the juniors who sat there watching reflected on themselves... how could they think of lip syncing at a ceremony like this... Shinhwa's nearing 40 and still singing live while dancing two dance tracks.
