BTS has really impressed “Show Champion” host Kim Shin Young, and she shared the reasons why on her radio show.
Kim Shin Young is a comedienne and TV show personality who hosts MBC Music’s weekly music show “Show Champion,” as well as DJs the radio show “Kim Shin Young’s Noon Song of Hope.”
While talking about BTS’s official remake of Seo Taiji and Boys’ “Come Back Home” on her radio show on July 23, Kim Shin Young shared how impressed she has been by BTS. “There’s a reason why it was inevitable that BTS would do well,” she said. “It’s that they’re exactly the same as they were at the start.”
“They come to say hello to me, and always work hard,” she said. She went on to explain that “Show Champion” uses a pre-recording system where many artists film their performances first to avoid unexpected incidents during the live show and also because of factors such as a lack of enough microphones for all the artists.
“There are some groups that don’t put their all into the performance when they have already done the pre-recording,” she continued, referring to the artists’ performances that audience members watch while the pre-recording is airing on television.
“But with BTS, I was really surprised,” Kim Shin Young said. “I asked the production staff, ‘Is this live?’ But they said that they’d pre-recorded.”
When asked why they would perform like that, Kim Shin Young replied, “They are so grateful to the fans who have waited for them, so they do it the same way. I really give them credit.”
BTS wrapped up their “WINGS” world concert tour earlier this month, and is currently preparing for a comeback in the second half of this year.
