SBS cancels Inkigayo in China


Korean television station SBS announced yesterday (Nov 4) that the special edition of Inkigayo, its weekly music programme,  which was slated to be held in China, has been canceled.

The confirmed lineup included B2ST, CNBLUE, Girl’s Day, 2AM, SISTAR, BIGBANG’s Taeyang, Shinhwa, EXO and TEENTOP.

The 24th anniversary special was scheduled to be held at the Shenzhen Universiad Sports Center on November 8 but was canceled due to what SBS declared as a breach of contract by the local organisers.

A representative from the company stated that the unfavourable conditions due to the lack of preperation for the event, together with other pre-determined requirements as stated in the initial contract were factors that led to their decision.

They concluded, “We apologise to all the fans who love K-Pop.”
