South Korea's national broadcaster KBS is conducting the 2020 KBS Song Festival or locally known as the 2020 Gayo Daechukje, featuring performances from your favorite K-Pop artists. It is slated as the East Asian country's biggest winter musical concert.

It will be a star-studded event once more, just like the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards and the 2020 Melon Music Awards. The official first line-up of performances includes BTS, TWICE, Seventeen, NCT, SHINee's Taemin, and Paul Kim.

There will likewise be collaboration stages for Sunmi, J.Y. Park, Jessi, and Jackson Wang, and trot veterans Kim Yeon Ja and Seol Un Do.

Shortly after, the network also unveiled the second line-up. Officially performing and gracing the show are NU'EST, MAMAMOO, MONSTA X, The Boyz, Stray Kids, Momoland, ENHYPEN, ASTRO, TXT, GOT7, IZ*ONE, GFriend, (G)I-DLE, ITZY, Oh My Girl, and aespa.

They are performing their greatest hits. The Gayo Daechukje is well-known for elaborate and realistic set designs and lighting.

Not yet in the actual event, and at about 5 PM Korea time, the K-Pop celebrities and singers have started arriving at the venue. The official Twitter account of The Seoul Story shared photos of the stars in their fashionable and extravagant outfits.

JESSI carried coffee with her, wearing a fantastic pairing of wool coat, beautiful blouse, and pants as she was on her way to the show. Meanwhile, BTS chose to stay subtle with their black and dark-colored overcoats and wearing their face masks. Spotted arriving were RM, Jimin, Jin, and Jungkook.

TWICE Jihyo, Dahyun, Mina, and Tzuyu were minimal in their makeup, wearing face masks and winter outfits, but carrying what seemingly are sophisticated bags on their way to the event, The Seoul Story posted.

The KBS Song Festival is a yearly music show and concert that airs on KBS at the end of each year. The first edition happened in the 1960s as an awards ceremony, and this format was discontinued in 2006.

The 2020 Gayo Daechukje will happen on December 18th at 8:30 PM KST.
