Tablo Thanks Bong Tae Gyu in Tears on ‘Second Proposal’
MC Lee Sora of KBS Joy’s Second Proposal prepared a big present for Tablo to celebrate his successful solo comeback. She gift-wrapped her program and presented it to Tablo, letting him perform during an entire episode in his very own Tablo special.
Tablo’s solo album Fever’s End is proving to be a great success not only in Korea but also worldwide, as it topped the iTunes hip hop album chart in America and Canada and came in second on Billboard’s World Album Chart. Tablo will be performing these popular songs from his album on stage for the special, for the first, and perhaps the last time.
Lee Sora does not usually perform with her guests on her program, but this day she specially showed her support for Tablo by singing Home, the piece which she featured on, live with Tablo onstage.
Other singers who helped out with Tablo’s album, including Taeyang, Bumkey, Yankie, Bong Tae Gyu and Jinsil also came in to back Tablo up.
Big Bang’s Taeyang, who made issues of his own when his group received the Worldwide Act Award at the MTV Europe Awards, sang onstage with Tablo just after he returned to Korea.
When Tablo boasted that he received a cute emoticon from YG’s head, Yang Hyun Suk, after reaching the top of the American iTunes hip-hop chart, Taeyang, from the same agency, showed his cute envy, saying, “I’ve never received an emoticon before. I’m jealous.”
Bong Tae Gyu, who surprised many with his vocal skills in Tablo’s album, warmed the atmosphere with his wit. But in the end he brought Tablo to tears by reading a letter he secretly wrote to Tablo. At this, Tablo told Bong Tae Gyu that he “is my savior who let me live again.”
Tablo wrapped up the day’s shoot with the message he wanted to convey through his album, saying, “There are times in life when it hurts for unknown reasons. I hope my music comforts you in those times.”
The episode of Second Proposal which features Tablo and his friends will air on November 15.
