Netizens angry at broadcast stations cutting Big Bang’s closing performance at the 2014 Asian Games
Neitizens are furious at the top 3 broadcasting stations covering the Asian Games for cutting Big Bang’s closing performance segment.
Recently, Korea held the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, where athletes from multiple Asian countries competed in 36 sports. One of those most notable events of the Asian Games, though, are the Hallyu idol opening and closing performances.
As the games drew to a close, SISTAR, CNBLUE and Big Bang performed at the closing ceremony. However, to the surprise of many, Big Bang’s performances were cut by the 3 top broadcasting stations, KBS, MBC, and SBS.
Big Bang, as four, performed their previous hit songs, including “Fantastic Baby,” “Bad Boy,” and “Hands Up.” Unfortunately, Seungri wasn’t present, due to his weak health and high fever.
Many viewers commented how they had waited 3 hours, for naught. Netizens were especially angry, as this was Big Bang’s first group stage performance since the release of their last album in 2012.
BIGBANG’s performance still aired across the continent, just not in South Korea.
