The long-awaited 'MMTG - Civilization Express' special concert, 'K-Pop Songs That Deserve Another Comeback', is airing next week on June 11 at 11:30 PM KST via SBS!
With less than a week left until the anticipated special show, 'MMTG' has revealed a star-studded lineup of guest performers and panelists. However, many netizens feel that so far, the show's lineup features too many "guest panelists", and not enough performers. A total of 12 artists have been announced for the concert's lineup, but only 3 of them will be performing as the main acts of the 'K-Pop Songs That Deserve Another Comeback' theme. Many fans are hoping that the 13th and final artist announcement will be either SHINee or 2PM.
Check out the lineup for the 'MMTG - Civilization Express' special concert, 'K-Pop Songs That Deserve Another Comeback', below.
1. Oh My Girl (Performing)
2. Choi Ye Na & MONSTA X's Minhyuk (Guest Panelists)
3. Nine Muses (Performing)

While many fans are excited to see main performers including Oh My Girl, After School, and Nine Muses return to the stage with some of their hits like "Closer", "One Step, Two Step", "Diva", "Bang", "Ticket", and "News", some felt that the show's initial goal of putting together a special concert featuring beloved past K-Pop songs has become overshadowed by the large number of "guest panelists".
They said, "It's disappointing that there aren't that many performers, but honestly if it weren't for this special, no one would ever be able to see After School and Nine Muses performing together again", "It does seem like the original goal was somewhat lost along the way", "I thought SHINee was gonna perform TT. But maybe because Taemin is gone they can't TT", "I'm sure it's really hard to get people together after their groups have already disbanded", "What are all those panelists there for tho?", "What about 2PM TT", and more.
