We came, we saw and while we didn’t quite conquer, it was more than good enough to give this another go. Thanks to the interest we saw from the 2013 KBS Entertainment Awards live blog, we have decided to press forward and continue our live blog coverage of the other year-end events. This time, though, we are going for the full double whammy, going where no writing team on this site has gone before, solving a dilemma brought forth by the evils that is event schedule clashes.
In the interest of “fair” competition and all that good will stuff, most of the broadcasters have decided that the best way of taking glory away from each other was to schedule events in such a way that they clash horribly on the same day. This was a problem because the 2013 SBS Gayo Daejon happens on the same day as the 2013 MBC Entertainment Awards. Certainly we couldn’t just ignore the SBS Gayo Daejun, but we definitely didn’t want to miss out on all that juicy variety show awards. What a predicament. But why choose from one when you can just have both?
That’s right, we have just decided to have our cake and eat it too by covering both events with our fancy new live blog system. In the red corner, you’ll have lordbordem, providing you with live coverage of 2013 MBC Entertainment Awards. Meanwhile in the blue corner, we’ll have our awesome editing team comprised of crystalcove and halves in unison providing all of you K-Pop loving fans with live coverage of 2013 SBS Gayo Daejun. It really is the best of both worlds.
If the thought of watching great artists like Lee Hyori performing with CL, or watching Infinite give off the opening performance, watching Nine Muses perform at one of these events for the first time and other acts of extravagance put forward by SBS don’t perk your interest, then feel free to drop by the 2013 MBC Entertainment Awards.
2013 SBS Gayo Daejun – Music Makes Miracles Happen
There is usually a few things that are certain in life. You get older, the sun will rise in the morning, you will most definitely stub your toe on the corner even when you think you won’t, and lastly SBS will also put on a massively extravagant event during the end of the year to celebrate all things K-Pop.
SBS looks to outdo itself this year with a whole range of amazing performances. One of the first performances confirmed is Lee Hyori’s performance of “Miss Korea,” which will have non-celebrities participating on stage with the veteran singer. We then have the amazing collaboration with Lee Hyori and 2NE1’s CL, something you won’t see anywhere else owing to the fact that YG Entertainment won’t be participating in any of the other end of year song festivals.
There is also going to be a special stage with some of the best solo talents around. Verbal Jint, Bumkey and San E will be collaborating together to perform some of their greatest hits this year and that will certainly be one to look out for.
Then we get to the sheer array of talent that will be appearing at 2013 SBS Gayo Daejun. There is just too many names to list out but like we said before, this will be the only end of year song festival featuring YG artists. We then have a massive list of idols including Nine Muses, EXO, A Pink, miss A, Secret, 2PM, Girls Generation, KARA, G-Dragon, Park Jin Young, SHINee, Tiger JK, Teen Top, INFINITE, Block B, Hello Venus, Ailee and the list just keeps going on. Suffice to say, pretty much every singer that has released at least one song this year will be participating in this event.
This is great and all, but reading about the event is only half the fun. Good news because SBS will be streaming the event live on their live stream page here. You’ll be able to watch the event as it happens on SBS and then read our live blog to find out exactly what is being said. It really is the best way of enjoying this event.
Extravagance galore, 2013 SBS Gayo Daejun will kick off on December 29 starting at 8:00pm (KST). You can see what time that is in your respective time zones by going to this page. Or you can just look at the countdown below. I hope to see you all there!
