Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus, concerns about people gathering at crowded places have been raised.
Music shows are prime targets for the spread of diseases as fans stand closely together in an enclosed area.
To minimize lost profit while still acting on safety measures, music shows will now hold live broadcasts and pre-recordings without an audience.
As such, they are keeping K-Pop fans safe by not making it an option to attend the recordings in the first place.
The following shows are confirmed to adhere to this compromise:
1. M! Countdown
2. Music Bank
3. Music Core
