The First Spectacular YG Family Stage Of The Night- EPIK HIGH feat Park Bom with ”UP”

MBC’s ”Gayo Daejun” year end festival’s 1st part was a blast as YG Family showed their first spectacular stage of the night! After five full years, YG Family finally appeared as a ”family” in this year’s Gayo Daejun.

Epik High started their performance with an intro of their hit song ”Don’t Hate Me” followed by their other hit song ”UP” with features 2NE1’s Park Bom. The performance was spectacular, as Epik High rapped smoothly while Bom hit the high notes perfectly. Bom stunned many with her outfit, which was her trademark mini dress, showing off her ”doll-like” legs.

Another reason for this to be the ”hype” for now is that it was kind of a suprise 2NE1’s Bom would join Epik High and it was their first ever live performance together as the comeback stage back then during Epik High’s comeback was cancelled.

Meanwhile this year’s MBC Gayo Daejun is the hype of town as artists leading the entertainment industry such as ”Super Junior, DBSK, SHINee, Big Bang, Epik High, 2NE1, Lee Hayi” and many more attended with a total of 45 teams and 165 singers.
