BTS Reportedly Unable To Attend Gaon Chart Music Awards

BTS may not be attending the upcoming Gaon Chart Music Awards.

On February 1, a media source reported that the group is unable to attend the awards ceremony due to predetermined schedules. Their agency, however, has not given an official statement yet.

The Gaon Chart Music Awards is organized by the Korea Music Content Industry Association and will be held on February 14 at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul.

As previously announced, Super Junior’s Leeteuk and TWICE’s Dahyun will be MCs, and the first round of performers will include TWICE, IU, Sunmi, Epik High, Wanna One, SEVENTEEN, Changmo, Heize, Hwang Chi Yeul, MeloMance, NU’EST W, SECHSKIES, GOT7, and Lee Soo Hyun from Akdong Musician.

I can't believe I had to find out from the MEDIA that I won't be spending Valentine's Day with my man...

I'm pretty okay with this >.>. They kept us well fed with the awards/end-of-year shows. I'm beyond sick of DNA performances. I just hope nobody bought tickets expecting BTS to be there.

I remembered that Big Hit BTS schedule page when I first saw this news, so I went to look at it and it's blank? Are they announcing BTS's schedule elsewhere, or are they also tired of trying to keep track of BTS?

I think they only announce "official" schedules on that page like TV appearances, fan events, concerts. Private events or recordings for stuff are not posted there. They just announced they'll release their 3rd Japanese album + fan meetings in Japan so I guess that's why they are busy.
lemonadetea 1st-Feb-2018 09:53 am (UTC)
Could be! The Japan album isn't coming out until April, though.

(I'll be over here crying about wanting Korean promotions.)
mc1a 1st-Feb-2018 10:00 am (UTC)
That's also true. But until then we have Hixtape, whatever Namjoon wants to release, tons of Run BTS, the Global Vlive Top10 thing (which is also pre-recorded), maybe something with PUMA? (they posted something on twt and idk if it's goodbye or if they're planning something), maybe even another collab with another international artist? There are so many possibilities lol but for now yeah, February looks empty and it's so weird. I mean last summer we at least had BV2 to watch and then in March-April while they were on tour we had Run and Gayo episodes.
lemonadetea 1st-Feb-2018 10:17 am (UTC)
I’m changing the name of hixtape to the hopely grail because I’m not convinced we’re ever gonna see it, but otherwise yeah I should stop whining. I haven’t even watched subs of that recent gayo daejun backstage yet, I’ve been so frazzled.

Just one Weekly Idol, though, please?
mc1a 1st-Feb-2018 10:41 am (UTC)
At this point, I think he's gonna release it on/for his birthday but God knows what "soon" means according to them. I have to catch up on a couple of Run ep and some Bangtan Bombs/Episodes too.

I didn't even watch their variety appearances from last year. It's bad. It's very bad. But IA with a Weekly Idol appearance. It's been too long.

re PUMA, their contract ended (apparently, too expensive)
mc1a 1st-Feb-2018 01:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I saw a better translation of their tweet and it sounded like goodbye. It was sweet of them to tweet that at 06:13.
babyjenkski 1st-Feb-2018 10:19 pm (UTC)
PUMA made some really great videos and had awesome photoshoots with BTS. Sad to see it end.
mc1a WE'RE GETTING MORE PUMA X BTS2nd-Feb-2018 10:07 am (UTC)

Trans: You didn't think it was over, right?

OMG a fellow intellectual. If i had to see a DNA/Mic drop perf one more time istg...
Can't believe they are big enough to skip award shows now
jyusou 1st-Feb-2018 10:01 am (UTC)
/cough/ i'm sick of seeing performances of dna too. including mic drop ngl. like, sma 2018 was an absolute chore to get through, when it was done i was like "thank you, fuck, now i can shower and sleep" lol. i never had these thoughts for their previous releases before, and i think it's maybe because this time their added appearances on the amas and other american shows bombarded us with even more performances throughout the entire promotion cycle to the point where we got saturated.
ms_minniemaus 1st-Feb-2018 10:23 am (UTC)
lmao your note, OP!

Too bad if they're not attending, I was looking forward to a work-free day to watch this, but I'll survive. They're still getting 1st and 3rd quarter for albums, so shrug
mc1a 1st-Feb-2018 10:50 am (UTC)
Taehyung the type to break up with you through a newspaper.
chaehocheol 1st-Feb-2018 02:45 pm (UTC)
Smh I loathe him
mc1a 1st-Feb-2018 11:23 pm (UTC)
Not only is he ditching me on Valentine's Day but he won't even sing "you know it all, you're my best friend" to me ON THE 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE SONG

Why do I put up with his shit? Don't answer that.
chaehocheol 2nd-Feb-2018 12:13 am (UTC)
What a fail, how dare he??

........same reason I do bro 😞
callherblondie 2nd-Feb-2018 05:39 am (UTC)
Too bad now he can't even ask his fans to pay for a full page ad or the side of a bus to announce that he's breaking up with you.

LOL sorry I couldn't resist. You have my blessing to drag Yoongi all over the place jsyk.
mc1a 2nd-Feb-2018 10:59 am (UTC)
LOL drag him! I wish I could see his face when he reached for his phone to text his fans but then realized he wasn't allowed to anymore.

Is Yoongi back from searching for his old sound?
callherblondie 2nd-Feb-2018 01:40 pm (UTC)
Not sure if he's even using his studio room to make music anymore. Something's going on in there but it's not music.
mc1a 2nd-Feb-2018 06:38 pm (UTC)
Fapping and crying to his old songs :D
dropthecrates 1st-Feb-2018 10:29 am (UTC)
probably for the best, i love them dearly but i'm worried they're becoming overexposed and people will reach bitch-eating-crackers levels of annoyance (if they haven't already).

edit: the japanese album probably doesn't help my first point sdkfjslkd whoops. i've finished editing now i promise

Aww that's unfortunate because i thought they got #1 and breaking 16 year album sales based on gaon calculation? (I didnt really pay attention)
