Music Core and Inkigayo have responded to reports that Wanna One wont be appearing on the programs.
On August 10, a source from MBCs Music Core commented, It is not true that Wanna Ones appearance has been canceled. Wanna One just wont be able to appear on this weeks episode due to their busy schedule.
The source added, Wanna Ones album was released on August 7. Their scores which are calculated this week will be reflected in next weeks chart. We are continuously discussing with them for next weeks schedule.
A representative from SBS also responded, We do not have casting restrictions. As Wanna One appeared on Night of Real Entertainment, their appearance on Inkigayo is also open. However, this weeks cast has not been finalized yet. It will be by Friday.
Previously, I.O.I from the first season of Produce 101 never appeared on Music Core and Inkigayo due to alleged restrictions from the broadcast stations.
Wanna One will debut on August 10 via M!Countdown but will not be appearing on Music Bank for the next two weeks due to the program airing pre-recorded world tour episodes.
