Music shows are a staple and a part of a tradition in K-pop, and it's something unique to South Korea. It's a great way to watch performances of your favorite k-pop artists, but most importantly -- it's a great way to stay in the loop of all things k-pop.
Another fun factor of watching a music show is seeing the chemistry between the hosts! Last week, we were able to take a look at some special emcee stages from KBS's Music Bank, whereas today -- we'll be able to take a look at some special stages from MCs from MBC's Show! Music Core!
Show! Music Core aired for the first time in 2005 and has had a great history of having spectacular MCs, with most of them being active singers from the industry! Sometimes, they treat us with their own special stages, which fans absolutely adore. Today, we'll be checking a few of them out, and man -- you wish they were a co-ed group themselves. Let us know your thoughts, and make sure to let us know who your favorites are!

What are your thoughts on this list? With eight years of history for this music show, these stages are pretty iconic. MC chemistry is something many k-pop fans look forward to, and with idol stars taking the roles of MCs more and more, k-pop fans are happy to see some of their biases as MCs.
