I’m liking the line-up list 😉
YG Entertainment’s idol groups Big Bang and 2NE1 will be on MBC’s music program Music Core.
Their future appearance on the show is attracting attention because until now, MBC and YG have not been on particularly good terms.
A “Music Core” publicist announced on the 10th, “Big Bang’s Daesung and Seungri as well as 2NE1 will be featured in the 200th special episode.”
Big Bang’s Daesung and Seungri will appear on the show for the first time in 11 months since they stopped MCing for Music Core. They will go back to their MC spots for this particular episode. 2NE1 plans to go on Music Core for the first time since debut, singing their single “Fire.”
Big Bang, 2NE1, and other YG Entertainment artists did not appear on Music Core for about 11 months. 2NE1’s appearance on MBC’s variety show “Danbi” started the reconciliation between the two parties.
YG’s head Yang Hyun Suk has explained before, “There are a lot of rumors about why we don’t appear on certain TV stations. YG Entertainment’s publicity outlook is appearing only once per week on broadcast. It has nothing to do with certain broadcasting companies.”
But YG artists still did not appear on MBC shows and the rumors still continued. However, with this new announcement that Big Bang’s Daesung and Seungri and 2NE1 will appear on Music Core, people are anticipating MBC and YG to fully reconcile.
On another note, the 200th special episode which will be February 20th, will also feature 2PM, SNSD, After School, Brown Eyed Girls, Lee Eunmi, Baek Ji Young, Kim Jong Gook, SHINee, C.N.Blue, and more artists all singing their debut singles.
This looks really promising. It’s entirely based upon professional judging, not on fans’ votings 🙂
About KMA, from an article last year: “The nominees are selected in a collective evaluative process by a committee of 52 judges with a variety of perspectives.” The representative added, “No other aspect besides music is considered when selecting nominees. Musical value and the final product are the main concerns during evaluation.”
The Korean Music Awards seeks to treat music as more than a mere form of amusement but as an art, and musicians as artists instead of entertainers. With such a basis, more attention is paid to albums and songs rather than singers, and musical achievement represents the standard rather than sales figures. The ultimate goal of the Korean Music Awards is to move beyond the mainstream vs. independent debate and to create a foundation upon which Korean music can progress in a balanced, positive manner.
