Confessions on the 2011 MBC Gayo Daejun

Just before the end of 2011, MBC aired a night full of K-Pop entertainment from popular groups like Super Junior, Wonder Girls, SNSD, 2PM, Infinite, BEAST, f(x), After School, T-ara, 2NE1 and many more.

However this greatly anticipated night ended with disappointment as there was a multitude of stage errors and faults in sound and lighting.

The most noticeable mishaps arose during the performances of U-Kiss, MBLAQ, SHINee, Wonder Girls, and 2PM.

U-Kiss seemed to have had a communication error and quickly improvised into their 0330 performances as their screen suddenly changed, causing confusion and embarassment to members. However they still managed to execute a powerful performance despite the sound difficulties with their mics.

MBLAQ's performance of Mona Lisa was interrupted with sound difficulties between the music and their mics. Their frustrated expressions were noticeable as they tried to keep up.

SHINee's stage went successfully until the part where fans expected to see a teaser of their comeback song. The teaser did not appear and instead, the production team switched the screen to introduce the next performer.

Like MBLAQ, the Wonder Girls had a few technical errors during their performance of Me, In which upsetted many fans who were anticipating a live performance of the song.

Although 2PM did not suffer any sound or mic difficulties, majority of their performance of Hands Up was blocked by massive balls that all floated towards the centre stage. Check out the performance below:

With this night full of mishaps, there were some amazing dance battles and duets. I must say that the SBS broadcast was the best. Then KBS. Then, of course, was the MBC which was a complete failure. Furthermore, some groups performed for as little as 2 minutes while others held the stage for 5 minutes. It was incredibly unfair for many hard working artists, especially being the show to end the year.

Some impressive performances include Ga-In and Jo Kwon's version of Trouble Maker, Song Ji Eun and Bang Yong Guk's Going Crazy, 4Minute's Mirror Mirror, TVXQ's Keep Your Head Down and T-ara's Roly Poly.
