Studio 1 ushers in Lunar New Year with Agogo


Agogo comes to studio 1

While many people in Singapore were busy preparing for the Chinese New Year, our Mediacorp studio crew was busy rehearsing and preparing for the Lunar New Year's Eve Special. To usher in the prosperous year of the Dog, they held the show concurrently at two different locations – Mediacorp Studio 1 and Chinatown.

The show was aired on Channel 8 and it included lighthearted short skits. These skits re-enacted the way Singaporeans prepare and celebrate Chinese New Year, showcasing the traditions, cultures and taboos surrounding the new year. It was a boisterous and fun-filled show that brought families together watching the show.

Watch the video below for more behind the scenes action and time-lapses of how the show was completed! 


The show was brought together through the hard work and sheer effort of the studio crew. In preparation for the show, the crew started working non-stop 3 days before it was to be aired Live. As the show went live on the eve of Chinese New Year, most of the production team and performers had their reunion dinners a few days before the day. This highlighted their true dedication towards making this show a success. Ultimately, the team was happy that the show was successfully completed.
