One Way's Peter and Sky spill the deets on some behind-the-scenes secrets of your favourite K-pop music shows!
24 Mar 2017 - 2:37 PM  UPDATED 24 Mar 2017 - 2:37 PM

Time to get excited K-pop fans because One Way's Peter Hyun and Sky have a brand new show on SBS PopAsia - say hello to the "One Way to be a K-pop Star" podcast!

This week, Peter and Sky pull the curtains back on what really goes on behind-the-scenes of some of K-pop's most popular music shows, such as "Music Core" and "M!Countdown."

While fans are well aware that each music show that airs each week goes for 1 hour, but preparations for a program takes many hours, starting as early as 6AM and not finishing until sunset.

Not only do artists turn up super early for make-up and preparations, but there is a lot of waiting around before even taking to the stage, so much so that actually performing becomes less nerve-wrecking. A lot of the shows are prerecorded, meaning that if an artist takes too long on the stage, everything gets pushed back.

Having said that though, Peter and Sky did enjoy seeing all the fans cheering all the artists - even if they weren't their fans!

Bottom line, there is a lot of work that goes into making those music shows each week!
