Year End Award Shows To Match BTS’s Schedule For Their Attendance The big 3 channels (MBC, KBS, SBS) and other various year end award shows representatives revealed that they are trying their best to cast BTS onto their show. The main reason is because of their outstanding achievements at Billboard and their significance in the music industry for the entire year. They believed that it would be hard and unlikely for any singers to be able to beat BTS even if they were to release a ‘daebak’ album in the second half of the year. As such, it was reported that they are beginning the casting as early as now. Previously, it was known that BTS third full length album “LOVE YOURSELF 轉 ‘Tear’”, broke the record by selling more than 1.66 million physical copies and topping Gaon Chart as of the end of May 2018. It is expected that the results will be even more astonishing after the data for the month of June is computed. Another reason for the early casting of BTS is also because of the reservation of venue to hold the year end awards ceremony. The availability of the venue hall, the schedule of the media channels as well as the schedule of BTS are the 3 main factors which affect the finalized date of the award ceremony for each channel. It was revealed that BTS is fully booked since a year ago and it will be as difficult as finding a needle in a hay sack to fit a new schedule. It is not easy for the media channels to cast them as they have to compromise also BTS’s upcoming overseas schedule and find the date which suits them the best. According to Big Hit Entertainment, they said that BTS’s schedule is fully packed for the rest of the year. If they were to include more shows for their upcoming tour, it is going to get even more busy for the boys. Lastly, a representative from year end awards ceremony organizing team revealed that usually they decide on who to cast as the end of year approaches based on the results both online and offline. However, in the case of BTS, their outstanding results for the first half of the year have already resulted in the decision in majority of the media channels in wanting to cast them.
