Back in the day, K-pop experienced a surge of exciting collaborations between second-generation male and female idols (both solo and groups). While it’s hard to see as many of these mixed stages nowadays, we still manage to witness an awesome selection of these kinds of collaborations during the award show season.

From past to present, here are 10 guy/girl K-pop stages that have us eager to see more performances of the sort!

1. BIGBANG X Lee Hyori

If you’re familiar with BIGBANG or Lee Hyori, you’ll know that they are avid fans of one another. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Mnet KM Music Festival (now called the Mnet Asian Music Awards), Hyori and BIGBANG set the stage on fire for nearly 13 minutes when they showcased their respective top hits. Apart from the breathtaking performances, one particular moment that stunned the crowd was when rapper T.O.P kissed Hyori. This collaboration stage is iconic, and definitely one for the K-pop history books!
