After long conflicting reports, the final decision has been made that the 2017 KBS Entertainment Awards will not be occurring.
On December 12th, a source from KBS confirmed that the Entertainment Awards have been cancelled for this year. Most KBS variety PDs have been taking part in the strike that has been going on since September 4th, and as a result various programs have been cancelled and off-air. Considering the situation, it appears that its difficult to hold the Entertainment Awards for this year.
The 2017 KBS Song Festival and 2017 KBS Drama Awards will still be held on December 29th and 31st, respectively. However, this year the Song Festival will be held on a much smaller scale than previous years.
