The 500th episode of “Inkigayo” this afternoon was pretty good. Their special stages were much better executed than the recent Mnet 20s Choice. In the beginning, MCs Eun Ji Won and Heo Yi Jae pushed out a cake and announced the 500th episode, with all the performers standing behind them. Two singers were invited to come out to say something. Besides Uhm Jung Hwa, guess who was the other? Yes, it was Wonder Girls leader Min Sun Ye, what a honor!
Sun Ye and Jo Kwon – This Song
The leaders of Wonder Girls and 2AM did a good job singing “This Song” which wasn’t too hard really since it was a real slow ballad and something which they were both good with. It was nice to see a small video history at the beginning of Sun Ye and Jo Kwon when they were still kids. Her ponytail and skirt was adorable plus she gave an excellent feminine rendition of “This Song”.
Wonder Boys – Girls Generation + So Hot Special Stage
They started off first with SNSD “Girls Generation” and ended it with Wonder Girls “So Hot”. All of them wore pale pink outfits with the exception of Tae Min (Shinee) who wore a striking pink number. They did relatively good for most, marking down all the specific moves like the real thing. Plus they sang live. Seung Ri like most predicted really did Sun Mi’s part in “So Hot.
Seung Ri – Sun Mi
Sung Min – Sun Ye
Tae Min – So Hee
Jo Kwon – Ye Eun
Shin Dong – Yoo Bin
Would love to review other stages but decide not to to avoid bashing.
