K-pop is a phenomenon that has spread across the globe. Sensations like Psy, Big Bang, and Wonder Girls helped put the genre on the international map. With a little pre-planning, fans can see acts perform for free by being an audience member in a televised music show. Korea has many popular programs, like “Inkigayo” and “Show! Music Core,” that are aired weekly and are major stage productions. There are four major broadcasters who record programs: KBS, SBS, MBC, and CJ E&M. To request tickets, simply visit their website and fill out an application form. Some shows like “M Countdown” do not have an application process and take participants on a first-come-first-serve basis at the studio.
