The award ceremony for the 2020 APAN Music Star Awards has been postponed after the government raised the social distancing level to Level 1.5.  
 
“Due to the escalation in the social distancing level to Level 1.5 in metropolitan areas as daily coronavirus cases suddenly increased, we decided to postpone the event accordingly,” the organizing committee said.
 
“It is regrettable, but the safety and the protection of health for our artists and staff should come first,” Kang Min, the chairman of the organizing committee said.
 
“While we closely monitor the Covid-19 situation, we will announce alternate dates after we come up with a way to meticulously abide by the preventive measures of the social distancing guidelines,” said Son Sung-min, the chief executive of the APAN Awards and the chairman of the Korean Entertainment Management Association.
 
The awards ceremony was supposed to take place on Nov. 28 and 29 at Kyung Hee University’s Grand Peace Hall and was set to be exclusively livestreamed through KT’s online platforms Olleh TV and Seezn.
 
Hosted from 2012, the ceremony awards stars for their exceptional performances in television series from all broadcasters and cable channels. From this year, the event was expanded to also include the APAN Music Awards, which recognizes talented musicians.
