It was announced last Friday towards the end of “Music Bank” that Wonder Girls and So Nyeo Shi Dae would have a special stage this week.
Their special stage promises to be a night of fun for both sets of fans. According to the “Music Bank” PD, their performances will not include “So Hot” which is what the Wonder Girls are currently promoting but instead, So Nyeo Shi Dae will perform last year’s popular song, “Tell Me” with the Wonder Girls. The Wonder Girls will perform So Nyeo Shi Dae’s “Kissing You” by themselves while the latter will perform “Baby Baby” and “Girls Generation”.
Since debuting, both groups have been frequently compared by the media and fans whom have labelled them as “rivals” although they are frankly just good working partners or friends off-stage. Despite their busy schedules and the difficulties in getting them to appear on the same stage, they have managed to work it out and it promises to be one hell of a special stage if all goes right. You can certainly count on “Music Bank” in getting the special stages right.
If you look at the Wonder Epik special stage on “Inkigayo” yesterday, it was quite poorly executed. “One More Time” was too short, both groups didn’t interact much, Wonder Girls were “overpowered” by Jewelry’s background vocals. “One” was invaded by “Breakdown” at the beginning but they were so professional and didn’t get flustered but it wasn’t that good overall.
The mid-year episode on 4th July will be extended by 80 minutes to accomodate the various special performances which also includes a special stage in the form of Son Dam Bi, Bae Seul Gi, Ga In (Brown Eyed Girls) and Joo who will be performing Jewelry’s “One More Time”. MC Mong and Lee Seung Gi will also carry on their chemistry from “1N2D” with a special stage.
