The Boss’ Garam & X-5’s Gun Debut as MCs at Japanese Concert


Open World Entertainment labelmates The Boss‘ Garam and X-5‘s Gun made their MC debuts at the “K-Pop Festival Christmas Edition” at the Yokohama Arena on December 3.

The three-hour-long concert saw the likes of Shin Hye Sung, MBLAQ, Infinite, Park Jung Min, X-5, The Boss, Boyfriend, Park Hyun Bin, and Code-V perform. SS501‘s Park Jung Min hosted the first half while Garam and Gun took over the second. 

Garam and Gun especially impressed everyone with their fluent Japanese, coming both from their studies and, in Garam’s case, long promotions within Japan. The Boss performed “Love Power,” “Love Parade,” and “Lady” while X-5 performed their debut track, “Don’t Put On A Show,” and their new track, “Do You Want to See Me Go Crazy.” 

The two new MCs said, “We were nervous to the point of shaking because it was both our first time. Fortunately, we didn’t make any mistakes but we realize that there are still aspects we lack in so we’ll improve on those for next time. It was a great experience, and we hope to do better.” 

The Boss will be releasing their fourth single on December in Japan while X-5 is slated for a mini-album comeback on December 8.
