Much debate has been taking place over the past few weeks regarding Big Bang’s appearance on KBS’s “Music Bank,” and although the producer for the show was open to giving Big Bang a comeback stage, recent updates have shown that it isn’t looking good for both parties.
According to information revealed by one broadcast representative, producers of ‘Music Bank’ were reported to have responded negatively to YG Entertainment’s appearance offer. While they previously offered Big Bang a two-track comeback stage, producers were revealed to have changed their stance to one that gave the impression of “If you agree to sing one track, then you can come.”
Regarding the issue, YG Entertainment’s promotion team responded, “Honestly, there has been nothing decided yet. We are continuing to work with ‘Music Bank’ over Big Bang’s appearance.”
Since “Music Bank” operates on a unique music chart system that awards points for broadcast appearances, Big Bang might not rank highly on ‘K-Chart’ itself if they fail to appear.
Ever since SBS aired their extravagant one-hour special on the boys’ comeback, KBS has been cautious of Big Bang’s comeback, especially now that there are talks of “Inkigayo” offering a three track, possible four track, comeback performance.
Representatives of KBS, however, retorted by revealing that YG Entertainment was uncooperative with their efforts. PD Kim Sang Ho spoke with Newsen on March 3rd and revealed, “Big Bang made their comeback through SBS last week, but will not be appearing on ‘Music Bank’ this week.”
He continued, “Representatives of KBS requested an appearance from Big Bang, but YG Entertainment refused. It didn’t seem like they were too pleased with the idea. We have always kept the opportunity open for them, but since they refused, there’s nothing else we can do. Nothing has been confirmed regarding Big Bang’s future appearances yet.”
Fans have been expressing their disappointment over the issue by voicing concerns, such as, “Isn’t this being too hard on them?”
