[Professor Hong Jong Hwa's blog entry at 24 Dec 2011, 4.25am] Phew~ I've completed the SM Special Concert composition that I'm in charge of, and now I'm with SM singers at the last overnight practice and orchestra accompaniment practice~ It will be broadcasted live on 29th's SBS Gayo Daejeon~^^ (for now, the broadcast starts around 9 o'clock but at around 10.50~11.00 (Gayo Daejeon part 2), it will be broadcasted as 'SM Orchestra' or 'SM Special Performance')
It will start with Super Junior M - Henry's violin, while the Orchestra concerto is going on, SNSD - Seohyun (Piano), Tiffany (Flute), Super Junior - Kyuhyun (Harmonica). Trax - Jungmo (Guitar), f(x) - Victoria (Guitar)..then comes SoShi's Vocal, SHINee, etc... It ends with the appearance of all SM Artistes~ Rookie group EXO will also be featured live.^^ (t/n: not sure whether the EXO 'live' refers to them singing live or just EXO appearing on the live broadcast)
It was originally made to be a composition of around 20 minutes (10 Suites) but because it is a broadcast, it was cut short to around 9 minutes long. There's a plan to separately show the full version, through music video and performance, as 'SM Concert'~ (It will also be broadcasted worldwirde through Youtube^^)
