Year-end music festivals are looked forward to by every K-pop stan as we get some iconic performances, collab stages and interactions between our favorite artists. Broadcast since 1966, MBC’s festival is one of the biggest year-end annual music shows. Titled MBC Gayo Daejejeon, the 2021 edition will be held on New Year’s Eve. And the broadcast channel is going all out for it as evident from SuperM’s ‘Tiger Inside’ collab stage being performed by leading boy groups.

Last year, we had some surprising pair-ups and collab stages for MBC Gayo Daejejeon 2020. Popular fourth-gen group members from The Boyz, Stray Kids, Itzy, (G)I-DLE and IZ*ONE gave tribute to SSAK3 while we got the huge collab stage with Loona and The Boyz performing The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’. Legendary soloist Uhm Junghwa teamed up with Monsta X’s Jooheon and Hwasa, while Monsta X’s Shownu and NCT’s Ten gave us a dance cover of DJ Khaled’s ‘Popstar’. We also got former labelmates Rain and JYP getting together to perform their popular hits together for the music festival.
