Music Industry Cancelling May Activities As Well

It looks like the music industry will be quiet through May as well.

Because of the tragic Sewol ferry accident that took place on April 16th, artists indefinitely postponed their comebacks and joined the nation in mourning the terrible sinking incident. All events and schedules have come to an all stop through early May, and it looks like this all halt status will continue on for quite a while.

All agencies are mourning with the families, and related personnel are busy picking up the phone relaying news of schedule cancellations. One music rep stated, "I'm picking up a call every hour of the day of someone that needs to cancel their events or schedules."

April and May is usually a month full of events that take place all across the country. It's a season where the music industry expects big revenue. All schedules have been cancelled immediately following the disaster, but it seems like the cancellations will carry on through to the end of May as well. Several agencies that were leaning heavily on the revenue are taking measures to solve the situation.

It seems as though the music industry will not normalize anytime soon, perhaps until early May. Entertainment programs are taking caution and don't want to be the first to restart the shows. The resuming date could possibly be postponed for quite a time.

So the music industries are taking this time to check and recheck their new song contents. They're carefully analyzing already completed cover photos, teaser images, and music videos to see if anything will trigger memories of the tragic accident. They've gone into triple checking. Usually tragedy and emotional scenes are more likely to trigger the senses and sell better, but all photos and videos that could potentially reopen unhealed wounds are being omitted.
