Broadcast company SBS has canceled the 24th Anniversary Special Concert of “Inkigayo” that was planned to be held in China.
SBS announced on November 4, “We were planning to held ‘Inkigayo’ K-Pop concert in Shenzhen, China, at the Universiade Sports Stadium. However, due to unfavorable local circumstances, the concert has been canceled on short notice.”
