Cancelation Of K-Pop Schedules Due To Coronavirus Outbreaks
Over the past months, K-Pop concerts and shows have been canceled, not only in Asian countries but also across the globe as a result of the fast-spreading coronavirus outbreak that has killed more than 34 thousand people to date and is affecting 199 countries and territories around the world.
Many performances have been called off or postponed in South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and Bangkok over concern that people could be infected by the virus that first appeared in Wuhan. And recently, other world tours by many idol groups and K-Pop singers originally scheduled in Europe and Latin America also have been postponed.
In this article, Byeol Korea will provide you with the list of canceled K-Pop schedules due to the coronavirus outbreak. Let’s find out more about K-Pop artists postponing their concerts and events in view of the Covid-19 outbreak. So, stay tuned and keep scrolling down this article.
Taeyeon’s Solo Concert
Popular K-Pop singer Taeyeon announced that she has postponed her solo concerts in Singapore due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The member of popular K-Pop girl group Girls’ Generation first planned to hold a concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on February 1st, 2020. However, the fast spread of the virus that has now affected more than 190 countries around the world made the singer reconsider and cancel her solo concert.
ONE Production, the organizer of the Taeyeon Singapore concert, explained that the shows were postponed “due to coronavirus proliferation concerns. The safety of artists, patrons, and staff is our top priority and we will continue to act on advice from the authorities on the coronavirus and take precautionary measures in line with prevention efforts.”
However, there were no further details about when the replacement shows will take place and date. Fans who have already bought tickets will be fully refunded. Fans can see the full details on how they can get their refunds on ticketing agency Apactix’s website (www.apactix.com), which will be made through their original mode of payment.
GOT7’s World Tour
Another K-Pop boy band, GOT7, also announced the postponement of their Keep Spinning world tour concert in Bangkok.
On March 27th, 2020, JYP Entertainment announced another notice about the postponement of Got7’s Keep Spinning 2020 World Tour concert in Bangkok, Thailand. The group’s agency had already made first notice about the cancelation of the concert that was scheduled for February 15-16, 2020, at the Rajamangala National Stadium and then postponed to May 9-10, 2020, at the same venue.
However, the May concerts have also been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic that has spread to almost every country in the world. And the new replacement dates and places have yet to be scheduled.
We are deeply sorry to announce GOT7 2020 WORLD TOUR ‘KEEP SPINNING’ in SINGAPORE has been postponed.
