The Fact Music Awards 2021: Special stages to feature Super Junior's Heechul, The Boyz
Looks like award shows are going all out to compensate for going virtual due to the global lockdown. While the pandemic is under control in South Korea at the moment, the government is still not allowing large gatherings and live audiences for shows. Since 2020, most events, music shows and award shows have been streamed online with only the nominees and performers present at the venue. The same goes for The Fact Music Awards that has announced special stages by the likes of Super Junior’s Heechul and The Boyz.
Having launched only in 2019, the committee was disappointed that ever since their second edition, they have had to keep the award show online for the safety of fans and artists. To compensate, The Fact Music Awards 2021 is doing its best to make this year’s edition as glamorous as possible. They have introduced advanced AR technology that will enhance the idols’ performances and make the online event worth watching for fans and viewers. And so, we’ll be getting several special stages by artists and groups, along with the already announced performance lineup.

The award show already has a star-studded performance lineup that includes BTS, Seventeen and Ateez.

Super Junior is set to have a veranda concert where the viewers will feel like a music festival is being held in a garden or a house veranda. Such performances have been held in the past by JTBC’s variety shows ‘Begin Again’ and ‘Sea of Hope’. We will also get to see drummer Heechul as he will be having a solo performance where he will be playing the drums.
‘Mr. Trot’ winner and singer Lim Young-woong will be performing ‘My Starry Love’. He will also be singing ‘Trust In Me’, the song that won him the competition show ‘Mr. Trot’. He will be accompanied by an LED panoramic movie that will harmonize with his performance. His stage is expected to move the viewers to tears.
Kang Daniel's performance will have a horror concept set among the ruins of a city, while Astro’s Moonbin will include a marionette concept in his solo performance. The Boyz will be playing on their charms from their latest release ‘Thrill-ing’ and perform against a backdrop of a beach. Itzy is set to channel their inner mafia from their title song ‘MAFIA In the morning’ and incorporate one of the five senses for each member in their stage.
As revealed before, Stray Kids will be performing their sub-unit songs from ‘NOEASY’ for the first time. Similarly, Oh My Girl will be performing ‘Quest’ and Hwang Chi-yeul will be performing ‘Too Late’ for the first time. Additionally, some of the presenters at the show will be actors and celebrities like Kim So-yeon, Park Hae-jin, Esom, Kim Seon-ho, Park Hyung-sik, Shin Hyun-bin, Lee Jae-wook, Na In-woo, Gong Myung, Ahn Hyo-seop, Kim Beom, Son Na-eun, Nam Ji-hyun, Chae Jong-hyeop, Lee Do-hyun and Go Min-si, Kim Kyung-nam, Jeon Hye-bin, Kim Jung-hwan, Kim Jun-ho, Yoon Il-sang, Tak Jae-hoon and Celeb Five.
