Producers of SBS’s “Gayo Daejun” respond to criticisms of YG bias

SBS’s “Gayo Daejun” has come under fire for the amount of air time given to YG Entertainment artists.

Netizens have been arguing that the December 29th ceremony was biased towards YGE artists, which was supposedly reflected in the amount of air time they received.

Details from the actual broadcast show that GD&TOP and Se7en’s collaboration stage received 12 minutes, while 2NE1 and Kim Gun Mo’s performance received 18 minutes and 22 seconds. In comparison, 2PM and Park Jin Young received nine minutes and 31 seconds, BoA received seven minutes, and SNSD received six minutes.

Regarding the controversy, producers of SBS’s “Gayo Daejun” spoke with Newsen on December 30th and revealed, “The amount of air time they received was already decided before the live broadcast. 2PM’s stage or GD&TOP/Se7en’s stage were all balanced out with everything else.”

They continued, “We believe that the long length of 2NE1 and Kim Gun Mo’s performance is what’s causing these accusations of bias. What people need to know is that 2NE1 only sang two of their own songs. Seeing as how ‘It Hurts‘ is a slow song, the actual length of the song must have physically felt longer. Kim Gun Mo was also the highest senior present at the show, so his stage was a lot bigger in comparison. He asked us to match it up to our time divisions, but to the viewers, we believe that it could have been misinterpreted. Regardless, we were not biased towards YG artists.”
