Hyolyn's Medley Performance for KBS's Drama Awards Makes Headlines for Being Too Racy for the Event

On December 31, Hyolyn perfomed at medley at the KBS Drama Awards. Her performance began with her singing "Spring Watch," from the original soundtrack to the drama Black Knight. She, then, removes her coat and performs "See Sea" and "Dally." Many viewers found her performance and outfit inappropriate for the event that is so often viewed together by families. Even the day after the event, Hyolyn's performance is still being discussed into the new year.

a lot from netizensCollapse )

Omona, do you think she went to far? Do you think everyone should lighten up? Does this differ from Whasha's performance because it is a drama award show?

I'm more offended by her backup dancers grabbing their crotches. Men, stop doing that! It's not a good dance move!

the reaction is so overboard. would these netizens have the same energy if this was a male soloist grinding on the floor and hip thrusting with an unbuttoned shirt? plus the camera zoomed out and turned away from some of the more sexual moments in the choreo. also i'm pretty sure children have seen a human butt before or an outfit like that when they go to the beach. and guess what? they usually dgaf about other people and are just rolling around in the sand. this reaction plus the whole hwasa thing is ridiculous.

There is definitely sexism and double standards involved with the comments that K-netizens are spewing, not surprised at this point.

However, I feel like Dally shouldn’t have been performed cuz the crowd is stale and doesn’t seem to show much of a reaction. Also the camera reaction shots had me dying especially that one actress gasping.

I feel like she’s got other songs to perform as well? Like she’s done solo work when she was with Sistar, so she could have chosen something to suit the event :/

Okay the comment about them not having the body for this dance or song is utterly wrong. Songs like these designed for those that have more a curve to them. Also I don't see a problem with the performance. KBS knew what these songs were and allowed her to perform them so what's the deal??

i can't believe this is kbs. and it's all kbs' fault if anything. it's not like they've never seen her performance before.

i love her silver on silver look

I guess people expected ballads or OSTs relating to the performance, which she could have done a medley. but oh well it's netizens who love to nitpick things, so of course everything she does will be wrong.
