To ensure the safety of the spectators as well as the artists, people were instructed to evacuate the premises. The authorities stated that they will be locating the unknown caller once they have determined whether there was indeed a bomb threat or not.
After some time, KBS updated fans and the public that the investigation of the studio has wrapped up. A representative from KBS revealed that authorities will be staying for the show even if the investigation has ended because they will be supervising the area for any other possible threat. The network assured the fans that the broadcast of “Music Bank” will be carried out safely.
The bomb threat was reportedly targeting the girl group, A Pink. A few days ago, the said group has received a bomb threat and even death threats from one person who claims to be a huge fan.
