KBS Will Reopen Its Music Shows to Live Studio Audiences!

On November 5, South Korean broadcaster KBS announced that after almost two years, live studio audiences will soon be allowed back for its music programming.

Back in January of 2020, the network began removing live studio audiences from all of their music shows due to the coronavirus pandemic, starting with "Music Bank".

KBS has announced that "Open Concert" will be the first music program to return to filming with a live studio audience in mid-November. It will then be followed by "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook", "Immortal Songs", "Gayo Stage", and then, eventually, their weekly music show "Music Bank".

A statement from KBS regarding the return of live studio audiences reads as follows:

"In order to keep performances safe and healthy, we will strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines such as maintaining distance between seats and limiting the number of audience members. Each program's precise schedule and instructions on how to apply for the live audience will be posted on its website."
