Following the joint performance of some members on SBS Gayo Daejeon on Christmas, NCT DREAM and Stray Kids are back to send off 2019 with a large-scale MBC Gayo Daejejeon collaboration stage!
SM’s and JYP’s talented youngsters opened the show with the ultimate K-pop medley, featuring hits by iconic boy groups of the first, second, and third generation.
NCT DREAM appeared on stage first to do a short intro of “We Are The Future” by H.O.T., immediately followed by Stray Kids who covered Sech Kies’ “Com’Back”. The two groups provided a perfect contrast to one another: Dreamies in white and Stray Kids in black.
Next, Jeno, Renjun, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung performed the eternal bop by their senior group TVXQ – “Mirotic” – after which Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N. joined them on the main stage with their cool rendition of “Fantastic Baby” by Big Bang.
Finally, the two groups united for a jaw-dropping performance of EXO’s “Love Shot”. That gun move and Na nanana nananana aimed straight for the hearts of NCTzens and STAYs everywhere!
The icing on the cake was the boys’ cover of BTS’ “Boy With Luv“, featuring a special appearance by Jang Sungkyu, one of tonight’s hosts (in addition to the incredible visual duo that are Girls’ Generation’s Yoona and ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo).
What a way to start the festival! What did you think of this collaboration?
