Girls’ Generation’s Yuri, EXO’s Baekhyun, And Yoo Hee Yeol Confirmed As MCs For 2016 SBS Gayo Daejun
Girls’ Generation’s Yuri, EXO’s Baekhyun, and Yoo Hee Yeol have been confirmed as MCs for the 2016 SBS Gayo Daejun (otherwise known as SAF) on December 26.
During his 10-month MC stint with fellow EXO member Suho on SBS’s “Inkigayo” in 2014, Baekhyun delivered an excellent performance with his energy and ability to think on his feet. His fellow labelmate Yuri also boasts an excellent record of her own, having been an MC for music shows as well as SBS’s variety show “The Rallyist.” Announcer Bae Sung Jae, who hosts alongside her in the latter program, has nothing but praise for her, saying, “In one word, she’s perfect. Since the first filming, it’s been comfortable and we work in perfect harmony.”
As for Yoo Hee Yeol, nothing needs be said for the man who has his own music program and is famous for his musical abilities and his eloquence. He is also well-known for his sharp and witty remarks as a judge on “K-Pop Star.”
This year’s SBS Gayo Daejun will be a move away from the usual performance stages. It will be a throwback to the past as it retraces the history of K-pop back to 1990, as well as shed light on some of the greatest producers of the time.
Viewers can also look forward to a variety of exclusive collaboration stages as a special present to celebrate the end of the year. BIGBANG’s solo performance at the festival has also been confirmed.
