Ahead of BTS' historic Rockin' New Year's Eve performance in NYC, the group will have one final show in Korea before 2019 ends. Knowing BTS, the group will pull out all the stops to give their fans an amazing show that they'll remember for years to come. If you're a member of the BTS ARMY, you'll definitely want to tune in to see what kind of surprises BTS pulls for their last performance on home turf of 2019. To do that, you'll need to know how to stream the 2019 KBS Gayo Daechukje.
KBS Gayo Daechukje — also known as the KBS Song Festival — is shaping up to be a huge event. According to Soompi, Red Velvet's Irene and GOT7's Jinyoung will host the show, along with popular television personality Shin Dong Yup. Apart from BTS, other K-Pop groups on the lineup include GOT7, ITZY, TWICE, MONSTA X, NU'EST, SEVENTEEN, and Red Velvet.
The event will go down on Friday, Dec. 27 at the KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center) and will begin promptly at 7:50 p.m KST. As always, while the show happens at night in Korea, it's either in the middle of the night or at the crack of dawn elsewhere, because 7:50 p.m. KST translates to 2:50 a.m. PT and 5:50 a.m. ET. Those times may be hard for some fans to bear, but if you're really dedicated to watching the show in real-time, let me explain how.
The award show will stream live from the KBS World TV YouTube Channel. Fans can find the stream under the "Upcoming Live Streams" section of the channel. To make things simple for you to watch, you can just click play below when the time comes.
Of course, BTS will have a showcase of their own, but fans will be surprised to hear the show has something extra special up its sleeve involving BTS and other major K-Pop groups.
According to Soompi, on Dec. 26, KBS announced that 150 idols worked together on a song, and it will premiere during the KBS Gayo Daechukje. "The song expresses hopes and dreams and also provide comfort to those who have worked hard throughout the hectic year," the show revealed in its statement.
After the show, fans will get a music video and behind-the-scenes footage of their favorite stars in the studio recording the song. So, apart from BTS' Gayo Daechukje performance, fans can get excited for the group's special collaboration, too.
