    Entertainment industry puts a hold on various programs, dramas, events, and comebacks in light of the sunken ship tragedy

    Entertainment industry puts a hold on various programs, dramas, events, and comebacks in light of the sunken ship tragedy

    In light of the tragic sunken ferry incident in South Korea, most of the entertainment industry will be on hold for the next few days.

    Although it was reported early on yesterday that most of the passengers and crew had already been rescued off the ship, it was later revealed that that was not the case. Currently, at time of writing, there are still currently about 290 missing passengers with many of them being high school students who had been on a trip from school to Jeju Island. Rescue efforts are still under way and with many citizens still awaiting the news about the whereabouts of their loved ones, most of the broadcast stations will be concentrating their efforts on covering the incident and its aftermath.

    As such, 'M! Countdown' and 'Music Bank' have already announced their cancellation for this week. This means the comeback schedules or activities of several artists will be affected. As for 'Music Core' and 'Inkigayo', they are currently discussing a possible cancellation as well, but nothing has been decided yet. [Update - 'Inkigayo' has been canceled]

    In addition to 'M! Countdown', Mnet's 'M! Countdown Begins', and 'Block B's 5 minutes Before Chaos' have also been canceled.

    tvN has also canceled their sitcom 'Potato Star', and is also expected to cancel 'SNL Korea', and 'Comedy Big League'.

    SBS has also revealed that they will be replacing 'Oh My Baby' and 'One Night of TV Entertainment' with a 2 hour news special instead. The station has also put a hold on their dramas like 'Three Days'.

    Several shows from MBC such as 'Real Story Noon', 'Radio Star', 'Showtime Burning the B2ST' and its dramas such as 'Cunning Single Lady' have also been canceled.

    KBS will also delay their airing of 'Golden Cross', 'Pitapat Romance', 'Happy Together', in addition to 'Music Bank'.

    In addition to the broadcast stations, the movie industry is also halting much of their planned schedules. Several premieres, screenings, and interviews have already been canceled or delayed.

    A Pink and BoA have also revealed that they will be delaying their planned events in light of the incident, and joining them are other groups like EXO, Block B, and MBLAQ. EXO have postponed their interviews and are looking into making changes to their comeback schedule, while Block B announced through their fan cafe that they will be postponing their album release. MBLAQ's fan event with MWave was also canceled. Although not an actual event, T-ara's Jiyeon had planned to release her teaser earlier but Core Contents Media has expressed that they have decided to push it back.

    It's said that other idol groups who were planning to make their comeback with a bright and lively song around this time frame are looking to adjust their schedules as they do not feel that it is appropriate to release a happy dance track when many out there are grieving or anxiously awaiting news of their children, relative, or friend.

    Rescue efforts have been going on night and day to reach all those who had been aboard the ship. So far, about 179 have been rescued while 6 deaths have been reported. Our hearts go out to those who have lost their loved ones or are awaiting news. We hope that there will not be any more casualties and that the 290 missing will be found and brought home soon.

    BoA cancels interviews and VIP premiere of 'Make Your Move' in light of the tragic ship incident

    Due to the tragic sinking of a ship off the coast of South Korea, many celebrities have canceled and postponed events. BoA is the next one after A Pink to announce her intentions to refrain from activities temporarily.

    A rep from her Hollywood venture film 'Make Your Move' told TV Report on April 16, "The 'Make Your Move' VIP premiere planned for today has been canceled. After learning about the sunken ship incident, we deemed continuing on with the event discourteous to the bereaved family and decided to cancel it on site. BoA also canceled the upcoming planned interviews regarding the movie."

    A lot of other celebrities have already done the same and will probably continue to do so in light of the unfortunate circumstances.

    Janice Man attended a function yesterday. Reporter asked what she thought about her good old friend Angelababy smoking in the changing room, she said "Nowadays, you shouldn't smoke in there really, I know it is not too convenience for smokers" (How about smoking in restaurant, against the law? Damage a goddess image?) As a public figure, I think one should set a good example, not breaking the law!" Janice went on to say "I am a very ordinary person, I may eat fishball in the street, but I am not breaking the law though (What about if your boy friend is "speeding" and you are inside his car?) I had that experience before, I was scared at the time, afterwards, I didn't speak to him for a week"

    Miriam Yeung, Louis Koo and film director Pang Ho-Cheung attended the press conference for "Aberdeen" in Beijing yesterday. Miriam was asked what would she do if she found out her husband Real Ding is having an affair with another woman, just like the script in the movie when Eric Tsang has another woman? Miriam replied "I would like to see how she looks like, so that at least I know if she is pretty or not !". Miriam stated that she trusts her husband and has full confidence in him whole heartedly, she went on to say if one day, there is problem in her marriage, she would try to save it.

    Louis was asked did he has his "first kiss"? he smiled and said "Yesterday" (By who?) "None of your business!" was his reply. One the other hand, Pang Ho Cheung was busy telling naughty jokes, pointing his finger at Shawn Yue and said "Once every night", making everybody laugh!
