No Korean Stars at Japanese Pop Awards This Year

      November 27, 2012 13:03

      Japan's three major year-end music award shows will feature no Korean performers this year, Japanese media reported on Monday.

      They are the FNS Music Awards, Best Hit Music Awards, and Kohaku Uta Gassen or "Red and White Song Battle" on NHK.

      Nikkan Sports reported that although K-pop stars like TVXQ, Girls' Generation, and Kara appeared on these shows last year, they will not be seen this year since sentiment toward Korea soured over diplomatic spats like Japan's claim to Korea's Dokdo.
