Unfortunately, we will be unable to see IOI on 'Music Bank' once again.

On the recently released 'Music Bank' artist list for the upcoming recording on May 13, IOI's name is nowhere to be found. However, other artists such as Girls' Generation's Tiffany and INFINITE's Woohyun, who have released albums around the same period as IOI, are scheduled to appear. 

SEE ALSO: 'Produce 101's IOI is banned on public broadcasts?

IOI continue to struggle to make appearances on major broadcasting networks. While the girls have managed to join various variety shows, they are still unable to flaunt their talents on music programs. In fact, IOI were completely left out on 'Inkigayo's voting system on May 10, which is now stirring up the controversy even more. 

We dearly hope that IOI will be able to perform on 'Music Bank', 'Inkigayo', 'Show! Music Core', and more in the near future.

Even though they aren't letting them perform these girls will still be famous like comeon. Hopefully they can perform at other venues so fans can enjoy their hard work!

Why Are they exclude from the music programm ? is SM blocking them because of tiffany and Woohyun ? Can someone explain me ?

It's not about SM. They just mentioned Tiffany and Woohyun because, as said in the article, they released songs around the same time or after IOI released their song. The reason they find it hard to appear on KBS, SBS and MBC is because they're a girl group formed by Mnet (another broadcasting company). It's like a competition. They find it as a threat coz if they allow them to promote in KBS, SBS and MBC (which is a public broadcast) IOI will gain a lot of recognition then it'll mean that Mnet's show is a success therefore attracting more viewers for Mnet. SM has nothing to do with this.

They may be struggling on the music shows but they seem to do be doing really well getting cast on variety shows which is actually getting them more exposure than the music shows would.

its easy for these music shows to ban IOI since its a temporary group. they feel they just need to put up with all this for a year and then itll be over. so all the fuss that the fans make wont rly make that much of a difference sadly.

3 major broadcasting network is affraid of produce 101 popularity,its bcos the show (produce 101) consider as the most succesfull reality show on tv cable about debuting girlsgroup which airing on Mnet which also a cable network on korea,3 major broadcast company think that if they let IOI appear on their network it will indirectly making Mnet more popular....thats why in IOI temporary girl group case theyre trying so hard to conceal their popularity lolglad to hear that the girls mannage to appear on variety show thou,i thought 3 major broadcast banned the girls appereance for at least 6 months or 8 months,i forgot where i read it,it happend as soon as produce 101 show ended and the girls debuting

They're just threatened

I hope they'll appear on MuDo. Let's see how peoples will react if even after come to the nation variety, and these music show major broadcast could still do this to them. These kids are underage in majority, but the ridiculous adults always know how to take politics into matters despite whoever they're face. Yeah, so mature dudes - .-
