On November 17th, Boyfriend announced through their twitter account that they will give free hugs to fans.
Hyunseong tweeted, “[B.F Hyunseong] 11/18 Tomorrow at 7PM!!!! Find Boyfriend in Myeongdong! We’ll be giving out warm hugs to chase away the cold~~ ^^ Come towards my broad shoulders!”
The day has come that Boyfriend planned to have their Free Hug event in Myungdong on the 18th. However, as soon as the event started, more than 1,000 fans showed up and so the boys were forced to move to another location. Even in the new location, still a lot of fans showed up and the event was forced to a stop for safety reasons.
Boyfriend’s agency, Starship Entertainment explained, “We planned the event because Boyfriend wanted to give back to the fans who always give them strength. However, more people than we expected showed up. We’re disappointed that we had to cancel the event for the fans’ safety. Next time, we’ll come back with something better.”
We’re pretty sure that the fans that went to the said event are saddened by the news.
