Update: “Music Core” Releases Statement On SEVENTEEN Not Appearing On Show For Upcoming Comeback
Updated June 19 KST:
Hello. This is MBC’s “Music Core.”
The staff of “Music Core” is always working hard to invite singers from many different genres to our program to create stages that stand out from other music programs.
The staff has sent requests for SEVENTEEN to appear on our show, and we wish for them to appear on our show and perform for our viewers.
The “Music Core” staff will continue to work hard to create the greatest stages for fans of K-pop.
As SEVENTEEN gears up for their comeback on June 22, Pledis Entertainment has announced that the group will not be performing on MBC’s “Music Core” for their upcoming round of promotions.
On June 19, the agency confirmed, “It’s true that SEVENTEEN will not be appearing on MBC’s ‘Music Core’ following their comeback.”
An unconfirmed report by Korean media outlet News1 has speculated that the decision has to do with Big Hit Entertainment’s rumored conflict with MBC. Last month, Big Hit Entertainment officially became the largest shareholder of Pledis Entertainment, and no Big Hit artist has appeared on “Music Core” since May 2019.
SEVENTEEN will be returning with their seventh mini album “Heng:garæ” on June 22 at 6 p.m. KST.
