YG Entertainment will not be represented at this year’s MBC Gayo Daejun.
A representative of MBC’s variety show department revealed, “YG Entertainment’s artists will not attend the 2013 MBC Gayo Daejun held on December 31. Currently we expect to see no performances from artists of YG.” Last year, YG artists attended the year-end festival for the first time in four years. 2NE1, Big Bang, Epik High and Lee Hi collaborated for various special stages, and world star PSY greeted the viewers with a friendly video message. This announcement must thus come as a surprise to many, especially those who were hoping to see YG and MBC strengthen their relationship this year.
YG Entertainment is currently discussing the year-end festival issue with KBS, and while the broadcast station has invited YG artists to the show, the chances of them attending are not looking too good. As always, YG has confirmed their artists’ appearance at the 2013 SBS Gayo Daejun, and a special stage by two strong and sexy females, CL of 2NE1 and Lee Hyori, is gaining a lot of attention.
2013 KBS Gayo Daejun will be held on December 27, followed by 2013 SBS Gayo Daejun on December 29, and the year will be wrapped up by 2013 MBC Gayo Daejun on December 31.
