Hooray, we got to watch the 2007 KBS Music Festival on TV because Malaysia has the KBS World channel (the one and only dedicated Korean channel for all K-popped! Malaysians)!
The event was held at the KBS Hall on Dec 30.
how to fly…high‘ – JYP enthralls the crowd with his cover of Irene Cara’s
Fame. Nah, not really.
The talents were pitted against each other – girls vs. the boys – during the festival and home viewers were encouraged to vote through SMS for either the boy or girl team.
I thought it wasn’t fair from the get-go since there are more fan girls than boys and the former would be the group who’d bother with the SMS thingy. So naturally, the boys’ team won.
So without further ado, here’s a look at what transpired during the event.
That running on the spot bit during the chorus is ultra cute.
Quick, Tell Me, Tell Me, Tell Me!
Below is a look at how the acts were pitted against each other:
Round 1: Big Bang vs. Sonyeoshidae/ Girls’ Generation.
The Big Bang boys performed as a quartet that night because TOP collapsed before the show and had to be rushed to the hospital. I was also informed by a Big Bang fan (thanks Momo) that G-Dragon collapsed after the KBS performance. K-popped! wishes the boys the best of health in 2008 and please, take a break.
Round 2: Baek Ji-young vs. Eru
Round 4: Younha vs. SG Wannabe
Round 5: Yangpa vs. Epik High
Round 6: SeeYa vs. FT Island
Round 7: Wonder Girls vs. Super Junior
Apart from the performances, the talents also came together to perform medleys.
