Mnet's 'M! Countdown' special in Indonesia has been canceled.


The music show was originally scheduled for July 3 in Jakarta at the Mata Elang International Stadium, but the event was suddenly canceled today, June 28 KST.


The 'M! Countdown' special was supposed to celebrate the '2013 Korea-Indonesia Friendship Year'. Though Mnet has previously had specials in Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, and other countries, this would've been the first special in Indonesia.


The planned lineup included 2NE1, 2PM, B2ST, MBLAQ, SISTAR, SECRET, After School, B1A4, TEEN TOP, 4minute, Roy Kim, Verbal Jint, and more as well as collaborations between K-pop and Indonesian artists.


Unfortunately, it looks like we have to look forward to next time!

it is not the first time mnet cancel the concert in indonesia, in 2011 cnblue which is under mnet also cancelled the concert suddenly and without any reason at all and in korea mnet also has conflict with other agencies especially sm, that's why no sm artist in the list, whereas sm artists such as suju, snsd, shinee, tvxq, exo, etc are top rating in indonesia, to promoter they should be careful to invite artists under mnet because we have been deceived twice

Omg you guys. Stop it about the haze. It's not the Indonesians fault. It is because the badly timed weather and big overseas company burning up the forest. Like I'm in Jakarta and Yes we do not get the haze but the daily traffic polutions is merely the same. We are already sad that M Countdown is cancelled but you guys are STILL blaming the haze. Totally not our(k-pop fans) fault.

Yeah i guess it is not indonesians' fault now that 18 indonesian farmers have been arrested for starting the fires. I should also blame the wind and those overseas companies headed by Indonesian tycoons right? Indonesians living in a complete state of denial.

This is the dumbest comment i've ever seen. Your neighbours don't need your country's fresh air to survive. In fact, they'd rather close their windows and pray that your "fresh air" won't blow in.

Maybe this "neighbor countries" should check with their government, why they kept being silent in this issue. Well, maybe those haze are "produced" by their country BIG COMPANIES that trying to set up new palm oil plantation by burning the forest. You reap what you sow dude...

@d33deee You dumb? The fact that the haze is coming from Indonesia, means that your government should take the fucking responsibility. Big foreign companies or not, it still boils down to your country's incompetency for not being able to enforce strict laws on them.

@d33deee What makes you think our govts are keeping silent? We have requested proof for the companies your govt has accused, but it is now Indonesia's turn to be silent. Why so slow? Because these so called overseas companies are actually headed by Indonesian tycoons?..The pot calling the kettle black. Instead of making accusations that backfire on yourself, learn from your President and own up for once!

Does this happen frequently? KCON Aug 24 and 25 in Los Angeles is supposed to include M!Countdown. Without a good artist line-up it won't be worth flying from Seattle to attend.

From what i see so far, the promoter hasn't made any official statement yet, maybe they're still negotiating for the final conclusion. Eventhough it's really cancelled in the end, I personally hope there will be some logic and clear explanation about the reasons.

Im sorry for posting this much but i saw  more info on twitter: sistar  , 2 pm and 4 minute ceos pulled their respective groups cuz of conflict with m countdown ,since its so competitive their ceos requested special staged for each group but n countdown inodonesia didnt agree. Their ceos then cube, pulled 4 min along with beast, then also sistars ceo pulled them out too, followed by 2pm. M countdown due to lack of artists canceled the whole thing.

Well that's too bad if true. This is the difficulty with staging a competitive show overseas. You often don't have the same setup you would have at home and as competitive as the business is and as seemingly important as show trophies are the CEO's were nervous. Still it's kind of a black eye for the overall industry having to cancel a show like this at such a late date over what looks like a petty point. I had at first thought the reason for the cancellation is there were several groups that had been asked to tone down their dance performances or cover up more as I know a lot of US artists are asked to make their performance more modest when they go to Indonesia, and some of the Korean groups refused to do so. Well hopefully for their Indonesian fans they manage to reschedule this for another time and are better prepared to deal with finicky CEO's.

Stop blaming the haze people. The haze thing is like in northern part of Indonesia. It was like you're saying a concert in LA got cancelled because of the haze in NY! Well, and yeah... we're dissapointed. Just five days before the concert and they cancel it. It definitely sucks! And until now we haven't heard a single words from the promoter, committee, or the organizer whatsoever... *sigh*

5 days is not the best record. CNBLUE concert in Jakarta got cancelled just 1 day before the D-day -______- I hated both the promoter and CNBLUE for months at that time.

@deeane10 The source for the cancellation news? I first saw it in Osen, but it's in Korean languange (http://osen.mt.co.kr/article/G1109629186) or you can see the eng trans here: http://myeon-ies.tumblr.com/post/54093405481/mnet-halo-indonesia-reason-why-its-canceled. Btw, the organizer already release their official announcement about this cancellation through their twitter account @bigdaddyid

@d33deee It's just an announcement. What I'm waiting for is an official "statement" of how did it happen cause the promoter didn't seem to be informed of the cancellation beforehand. They're posting the artists' greetings only 2 minutes before my TL blew up with Osen's translation of the cancellation.

omg guys no need to bash other's country --" especially when you don't even know what's the problem behind the cancellation. that's freaking immature and disrespectful. Many of you said that it was because of the haze but even the majority of those who live in Jakarta didn't even know about the haze thing, means Jakarta is fine, the haze doesn't affect the city. Beside, Sumatera is far from Jakarta, check the map, like for real.

i like your explanation about do not bash other country if we dont even know what the problem behind the cancellation ,but its kind of awkward when you write "the majority of those who live in Jakarta didn't even know about the haze thing" please.. maybe it didn't affect jakarta but it affect half of my country. i don't like the way u say like that.dont say they didn't even know bout it,i know jakarta is far away from sumatera,its hurt my feeling because my country still have affect from "The Thing That Sumatera Do"

@omgitsgrace: You and the majority of jakarta must be living in a cave if you don't know what Indonesia has done to its neighbours. Instead of spending time on allkpop, read some international news before you make insensitive comments like this.
