No more live audience on Big Hit’s year-end concert – after COVID-19 cases spike in South Korea

Big Hit Entertainment has officially canceled the admission of live audience for their year-ender concert

Big Hit Entertainment has officially canceled the admission of live audience for their year-ender concert, according to an announcement made on Tuesday, December 7.

This is due to the social distancing level being raised in South Korea once again, as new cases of COVID-19 is quickly spreading, infecting including some K-pop acts such as Chungha, EVERGLOW members Yiren and Sihyeon and UP10TION’s Bitto and Kogyeol, to name a few.

Big Hit Entertainment has apologized to the fans who are looking forward to the offline, live part of the concert after being deprived of such due to COVID-19 concerns since the pandemic broke out, and also asked for understanding as the decision was made in order to provide a safe environment for both the staff and artists while still complying with the government’s health guidelines.

Headlined by Big Hit labels artists, the lineup will feature BTS of course, along with TXT and Big Hit’s new boy group ENHYPEN, as well as Lee Hyun, BUMZU, GFRIEND, and NU’EST. SEVENTEEN was excluded from the lineup according to Pledis Entertainment due to a conflicting schedule.
