It’s a battle for viewership ratings!
SBS’ special broadcast of Big Bang’s Big Bang Comeback Show will be airing opposite KBS’ weekly Music Bank on March 9 at 6 pm (KST) and 6:10 pm respectively.
The Big Bang Comeback Show will be mainly be composed of Big Bang’s concert performances from its recent Big Show concerts, which were held from March 2 through March 4, in support of Big Bang’s newest mini album, Alive. T
While some 39,000 fans attended the concerts, the performances and behind the scenes footage were all captured by SBS′ cameras for all those who were unable to attend the concert – and even for those who just wanted to relive the joy of seeing Big Bang back on stage.
However SBS’ Big Bang Comeback Show is set to air at the same time opposite KBS’ weekly Music Bank leaving viewers torn over which show they will watch.
In one corner is Big Bang, one of the biggest groups of K-Pop, who′s returned after a year and a half break, filled with tumultous events. The group’s recent concert was met with rave reviews by those who attended, raising the anticipation for those who have only been able to experience the new album through songs and music videos.
In the other is Music Bank, which boasts a mighty line-up of some 25 teams, including miss A, MBLAQ, FT Island, Tony An, John Park, Nine Muses and more.
Given the rather shaky relationship KBS has with Big Bang’s agency, YG Entertainment, some are questioning if the decision to pit Big Bang’s show against KBS was done as an intentional snub. Regardless of the motive though, many are agreeing it’s going to be a tough call to make that night.
