After Silica Gel set the stage for the first performance, IVE’s Ahn Yujin appeared on stage and took the microphone, saying, “There was a girl who came to see the Melon Music Awards in the winter of 2016. She cheered while looking at K-pop stars and dreamed of becoming a singer like them. After 7 years, I’ve grown into IVE’s Ahn Yujin. It’s a bit embarrassing, but that’s my story”.

The female idol then continued, “Among the audience and viewers who came to watch today’s performance, I wonder if someone, like me, will become a cool singer standing on the stage. Perhaps, they will reminisce like me in the future. The driving force that makes imagination possible is none other than K-pop”.

Additionally, Ahn Yujin expressed that the 2023 MMA is an occasion to repay gratitude to the fans who have sent much love to K-pop throughout the year. She also smiled and added, “Many artists have diligently prepared for the stage with gratitude. Thank you to everyone who loved K-pop this year.
