It looks like the music industry will be "on hold" at least until end of this week.
Currently, only the cancellation of Mnet "M! Countdown" and KBS "Music Bank" have been confirmed but viewers are expecting MBC and SBS to find it unfitting to air their music programs as well. Even if they do decide to put on the shows, there is a big possibility that the singers will be reluctant to perform.
When the first cancellation issue came up yesterday, it was due to the condolences that everyone was sending to the victims of the Korean ferry sinking incident. One representative said, "Until now, whenever incidents happened, the music industry always had a big effect. But this time, the situation is a lot worse so we only find it natural for us to stop our activity for now
