Epik High Talks About Why They Don’t Often Appear On Variety Shows On “Amazing Saturday”
Epik High’s Tablo and DJ Tukutz appeared on the January 16 episode of tvN’s “Amazing Saturday”!
Epik High is currently gearing up for their 10th studio album, “Epik High Is Here,” which features artists like B.I, G.Soul, Heize, CL, Zico, and more.
On the “Amazing Saturday” episode, MC Boom asked the guests why it’s hard to see Epik High on variety shows. Tablo replied, “One of the reasons we haven’t been on variety shows in a while is because Tukutz made an announcement one day. He said that he’s happy not being famous and that he’s comfortable not being recognized. He said he wanted to focus just on music and that he didn’t want to be consumed by variety shows.”
Asked why they had decided to come on the show, Tablo said, “Our manager sent a message in our group chat asking if we were interested in coming on the show. Of course I thought that Tukutz wouldn’t want to go, but he called me right away and said, ‘We should go on the show together.'”
Tukutz explained, “I’m a fan of this show. My son told me, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen you appear on TV,’ and made fun of me by asking, ‘Are you sure you’re someone who goes on TV nowadays?’ I decided to appear on this show to prove it to my son.”
Tablo also shared that the cast shouldn’t depend on his abilities as a songwriter and producer because he forgets lyrics. “I get lyrics mixed up,” he explained. “Mithra’s parts always feel new to me. We’ve performed the song ‘Fly’ about 10,000 times, but every time I hear him rap, I’m like, ‘Oh, right, it’s those lyrics.'”
