Television And Film Industries Normalizing… What About The Music Industry?
By Staff Writer | April 25, 2014 07:36 AM EDT
TV broadcasts and dramas are announcing their resuming of normal schedules, and movies are being released as scheduled. When will the music industry be back to normal?
It's nearly impossible to put on a splendid show after a national emergency disaster, and as such, the music industry usually has the longest 'break' period. Currently the music industry is expected to normalize in the 2nd week of May, and plans are carefully being scheduled around this time.

May 3rd and 4th fall on the weekend, May 5th is Children's Day, and the 6th is Buddha's Birthday. The music industry will most likely resume normal broadcasting around May 7th or 8th.
Of the teams that delayed their comebacks, the most anticipated group EXO will probably be the first to make a comeback. Other artists will be playing the field to see if they could afford to make a comeback alongside the others, since the music industry will be filled with an all-out war. Idol groups with massive fandoms are already scheduled for May comebacks, and some musicians have already delayed their comebacks over one month. Since the World Cup will take place in June, other artists have generously pushed back their comeback dates to July.
The festival and event-related revenue for April and May has been long gone. Although comebacks may resume sooner than anticipated, festivals will be difficult to schedule for May. Event planners are receiving calls left and right requesting cancellations for the month of May. Such companies are even saying that this is their own kind of crisis.
The drama industry has somewhat normalized. Terrestrial dramas have been airing somewhat normally. The press conference for MBC's new drama "A New Leaf" and SBS' new drama "Doctor Stranger" will be held on the 29th. It also looks as if the press conferences for KBS 2TV's "Big Man," SBS' "Wonderful Days," and "You're All Surrounded" will be held in the near future. Although entertainment programs are still at a halt, some meetings and recordings are being held here and there.
