Active FBA members[edit]

  •  Demonica: Demonica failed to state their intention regarding their participation of the seventh edition within the filing deadline
  •  Glaray: Glaray withdrew from the contest, citing "a combination of four consecutive non-qualifications and bad results, poor viewing figures and a decreased interest of the show within the public" as its reasons.
  •  Simjangdae: Simjangdae did not take part in the contest as a statement against the malfunctioning scandal regarding the voting counter during the sixth edition
  •  The White Havens: The White Havens had submitted a provisional application to participate in the 8th edition, whilst they determined how to select their entry. On 11 June 2017, the broadcaster was force to withdrawn their application to participate at the forthcoming contest because of broadcaster not submitting an entry in time.
