First, 2022 KBS Song Festival shared that Kim Chaewon and Haewon, the leaders of LE SSERAFIM and NMIXX, respectively, will form “Two Wons” and have an adorable special stage.
The award show further teased a performance by a trio called “You Want Me” (Yu Won Mi) featuring three popular idol group members. Despite only showing the three members’ backs, fans immediately recognized that the group’s name is an abbreviation of its members’ names: ITZY’s Yuna, IVE’s Jang Won Young, and (G)I-DLE’s Miyeon.
2022 KBS Song Festival also announced that it will have three talented vocalists charming viewers with their voices. This time, the show revealed the group members to be STAYC’s Yoon, (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi, and IVE’s Liz.
In addition, SM Entertainment stated on December 14 that NCT DREAM will appear at the year-end show to unveil their new remake song “Candy” for the first time ahead of the physical release of their upcoming winter special mini album of the same name.
Finally, just one day before the highly anticipated show airs, 2022 KBS Song Festival shared that THE BOYZ and ONEUS will have a special “hot and sexy” collab on the program. The announcement featured THE BOYZ’s Juyeon, Q, and Sunwoo as well as ONEUS’s Leedo, Hwanwoong, and Seoho. This will mark the reunion between THE BOYZ and ONEUS in performing on one stage together after two years since “Road to Kingdom” in 2020.
