After much anticipation, famous siblings Dara of 2NE1 andThunder of MBLAQ performed for the first time on the same stage on October 31, in Seoul Olympic Park Gymnasium for Superstar Power of Love Concert. Although MBLAQ debuted in October, these boys haven’t gotten the chance to step on the same stage as 2NE1, which is currently on break. Before going out to rock out a performance at this concert, Dara left a message to the fans about her mixed emotions toward the upcoming stage on her me2day. (Dara sure loves updating that site… do I sense an addict?)
Please backtrack for the me2day. Thanks – phjae

Aww, finally we see them together! Park siblings! <3
Netizens had been abuzz lately regarding the special privileges the stars under YGEntertainment seem to be receiving from the SBS. From the tremendous spotlight they received on Idol Big Show, as well as their special performances on Inkigayo, it’s no surprise such controversy came up. Also, Inkigayo was the one that held almost all of YG artistes’ comeback and debut stages. The accumulated time of their performances exceed the rest of the performing artists compared to MBC Show! Music Core and KBS Music Bank.
The producer, Park Sung Hoon, finally stood up to set up the rumors straight on the first of November at Seoul SBS Public Hall. He stated, “We never offered the YG to perform at our stage under the condition of appearing in no other music programs. I have started working with the YG President, Yang Hyun Suk, just lately, as I started working for Inkigayo. We two have been cooperating together since 2NE1’s debut stage, and we seem to have a good chemistry.“
He also added, “We select the stars based strictly on their popularity. As most of the music programs do, we cannot deny the guarantee of appearance we give to the ones in high fame, like Super Junior and SHINee.“
Producer Park has been in charge of Inkigayo since January. He also had been getting numerous criticisms about the Idol Big Show, aka the “YG Big Show”, due to the majority of their show taken by the performances by Big Bang (G-Dragon) and 2NE1. He also had something to say regarding that issue.
“We never favored the YG artistes for the Idol Big Show. Because of their popularity, we asked them to sing two to three songs, just like the rest of the stars. I think people just think that they took the majority because they all appeared consecutively toward the end of the show. Honestly, we offered other famous singers to sing more songs, but were rejected due to their busy schedule. The rumor about our favor toward YG is very unfair.”

I think its nice for the SBS producer to speak out about this issue.
For me, he’s telling the truth. Freals, how can netizens put the IDOL big show into YG big show?? Does that mean other idol groups didn’t stand up to them as much thats why they called it YG Big Show, am I right? Well, I guess netizen are YG fans heh? kekke
It’s been some time since we have seen the live performance of ‘Fire’ by 2NE1 on broadcast shows. Recently on SBS 1000 Song Challenged girlgroups 4Minute and T-ara did a song challenge on ‘Fire’.
And their live performance of the song have also earned good reviews from netizens and fans.
