The 1160 episode of ‘Inkigayo’ is canceled.

On this day, ‘Inkigayo’ side said, “Today, on October 30th, Inkigayo (1160 episode) will be canceled. Accordingly, we would like to inform you that today’s pre-recorded and live broadcast has also been canceled. Thank you for your understanding.” 

The reason for the cancellation was not disclosed, but it seems to have been decided due to the aftermath of the crush accident in Itaewon-dong, Seoul the previous day. Many casualties were caused by the accident caused by a large crowd in Itaewon in a heightened atmosphere ahead of Halloween.
