SBS's 'Inkigayo' will not be airing this week, in observance of the 3rd anniversary of the sinking of the Sewol Ferry, which occurred on the morning of April 16, 2014.

A similar decision was observed after the impeachment of former president Park, as broadcasting stations deemed it inappropriate for entertainment shows such as music programs to be aired during such times. Instead, an episode of 'The Truth We Want to Know' will be airing in the music show's place. 


Artists making comebacks this weekend will air their portions on the April 23 broadcast.

    Well, in much better terms here, it looks like we will have to wait until next week to see all of our favorite K-Pop artists perform on "Inkigayo" because of course since it's going to be the third anniversary of that horrific Sewol Ferry sinking, SBS has decided that it is better for them to air an anniversary special instead of usually airing "Inkigayo" live in order to immediately avoid any possible backlash, so to speak here, guys.  So, all of the amazing stages and comeback performances will have to wait another week AND I do hope that all of us will be understanding of this and look forward to next week.
