Some of the K-pop’s most beloved acts will heat up this year’s MelOn Music Award with special performances.

EXO, SHINee, BEAST and Dynamic Duo have confirmed their performances during the 2013 MelOn Music Awards to be held at Seoul’s Olympic Gymnastics Stadium next Thursday, the awards’ co-organizer LOEN Entertainment and MBC Plus Media announced on Friday.

EXO, one of the best rising stars of this year, will turn 12 wolves which go well with their sweeping hit tunes “Wolf” and “Growl.”

Borrowing a concept from fantasy romance movie “Twilight,” the performance will be like a love story that EXO members go through when meeting a newly-transferred girl in a high school.

SHINee will show their previous hit tunes through solo stages as well as splendid performances using a light, which matches well with their team’s name.

While BEAST will organize their stage with a concept of ghost, derived from their latest title tune “Shadow,” Dynamic Duo will render their No. 1 hit “BAAAM” with witty performances to deliver its lyrics about a man being used by a girl.

Last week, the fifth annual music awards announced top 10 music stars of this year, namely Ailee, BEAST, Busker Busker, Davichi, Dynamic Duo, EXO, G-Dragon, IU, SISTAR and SHINee.

The star-studded music awards will be live aired and streamed through cable music channel MBC MUSIC, portal website Daum, MelOn and YouTube.
