KBS’s Music Bank will be pausing broadcasts for three weeks after this week’s upcoming episode. As stated on Music Bank’s official website, the program will not air December 25th (Christmas) and January 1st (New Year’s) broadcasts. The broadcast on December 18th will not air due to the 2020 KBS Song Festival.

In addition, SBS’s Inkigayo declared that they would be taking a three-week hiatus for broadcasts after their December 13th episode. SBS took this action due to the sudden confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the K-Pop music industry.

Make sure to tune into Music Bank’s last broadcast of the year on December 11th at 5 p.m KST and Inkigayo’s last broadcast on December 13th 3:40 p.m KST.
