KBS Song Festival 2017 will be held at the KBS Hall on December 29. The event will kick-off at 8.30 pm KST and popular K-Pop groups, including EXO and BTS, are lined up to perform.
The organisers of the musical program have already revealed that they are going on a smaller scale because of the ongoing strike. According to the representative, the participants will be given more space to showcase their skills.
"It was decided in a rush that it will be held, so there is a lot that has to be prepared. It will be focused on individual stages from artists, and it is likely that there will be less artists than last year. It can be seen as somewhat of an expanded version of the Music Bank end-of-year episode," Soompi quoted the KBS representative.
The theme for this year is Concert and Confessions, which will be designed in the form of a mini-concert. During the show, each team will be given the opportunity to put on special performances on stage. The participants will also get an opportunity to interact with their fans through a special segment.
