Taemin attended the 2020 Gayo Daechukje (2020 KBS Song Festival) and performed nothing less of legendary for his performance of “Criminal” and “IDEA.”
Being one of the top male solo artists in the industry, he delivered another fantastic performance, fully equipped with new adlibs and choreography.
His performance for “IDEA” in particular had fans ascending to heaven, literally!
It was so great that fans requested for SM to release the remix version ASAP.
SM, for once, please do something right and release #IDEA gayo remix

Others were frustrated that these remix versions for award shows were not available on streaming platforms.
It frustrates me that I cant get these award show/special event song remixes on streaming platforms like some of these are honestly too god-tier to not officially release 😡
