Many fans were curious as to why group Big Bang decided to have their performances edited out from the broadcast of Dream Concert 2009.
Dream Concert 2009 took place on 10th October in Seoul World Cup Stadium, and Big Bang full team was there performing. But during the concert broadcast on 11th October at 3.3opm, their performances were edited out and not broadcasted. Fans were looking forward to seeing the whole team perform with DaeSung joining the team.
So what was the real reason for the no-broadcast?
It was explained that YG Entertainment has requested for the no-broadcast. Back in August when they signed the contract to perform at the concert, YG Entertainment had already requested for no-broadcast.
A Dream Concert staff said, “Every year, there will be entertainment companies who will request for no-broadcast. There is no problem to that.” And YG Entertainment also clarified, “Because it’s the participation in such concert that is an important thing, we did not put our mind for broadcast of the performances.”
They also added, “It is a rule in YG Entertainment for no-broadcast if it is not the official promotion period for Big Bang.”
But this was said to be ambiguous since Big Bang members went on broadcast show ‘Strong Heart’ during the chuseok week, and their performance as ‘Asian Song Festival’ in September was also aired. It was only for Dream Concert where there was no broadcast of their performance.
YG Entertainment then clarified, “Because it was DaeSung’s first performance after his car accident, and he couldn’t dance well – Big Bang was not at their normal or optimal condition. Because Big Bang could not show their best features, we decided that there will be no broadcast of their performance.”
Another group 2PM’s performances were also not broadcasted as their leader member JaeBum left the group about a month back due to his MySpace messages controversy.
