Year-end awards shows are the most anticipated events of the year since K-pop fans can see all their favorite artists gather and perform at these special events.
However, with the generation change of idols, the new generation of idol groups is often the one that happens. This is the case for this year’s award shows, as 4th generation idol groups are the most frequent performers for the 2022 award shows.
This is why a K-pop fan has expressed his disappointment that many of the top 3rd generation idol groups are not performing this year. The user commented: “This year’s award ceremonies, TWICE, BLACKPINK, Red Velvet, BTS, NCT, seventeen; It’s so hard to see them…are there any teams that have been confirmed? I really like the 3rd generation. It’s not about their performance on the charts…”
Other netizens joined in the discussion and commented, “Seventeen will appear on AAA”, “I think The Fact Awards was the last show for BTS”, “NCT has not confirmed any yet”, “There are no confirmed teams, and it is so difficult to see them” “none of the groups mentioned have been confirmed for MAMA either”, “I don’t think NCT will appear”, “I wonder if Nayeon will play on MAMA”, “I think TWICE has not Been to an awards show for a long time too”, “BLACKPINK is on a world tour right now”, “They’re all so busy”, and “It’s been so long since BLACKPINK has attended any awards show.”
