Fans from Thailand who are eagerly waiting for KBS Kpop World Festival must feel sad and disappointed, because the said event has been cancelled.
On August 8th, KBS World announced the cancellation through their official Twitter account. They said, “<Kpop World Festival in Thailand Cancellation Notice 1-1> Concert has been CANCELLED due to circumstances. We apologize for any inconveniences,” and “<Kpop World Festival in Thailand Cancellation Notice 1-2> Thank you for your support. We’ll bring you more quality events in the future.”
JMC Entertainment, the event organizer, revealed the reason of the sudden cancellation through their SNS accounts. They explained that it was due to the current political turmoil in Thailand that would affect the security of the groups and fans. They also mentioned that it’ll be delayed until February with a new event. They made sure that those who bought tickets will get their refunds.
However, Kpop fans who are anticipating the event assumed that it might be because of the poor sales due to the continuous Kpop-related events in the country.
The KBS Kpop World Festival was supposed to be attended by KPOP artists like 2PM‘s Taecyeon and Wooyoung, SISTAR, EXO, 4MINUTE, VIXX, Super Junior M‘s Henry, miss A, BTOB, 9Muses, Boyfriend, 100%, C-Clown, BTS and Tiny-G and is scheduled to take place on August 17th but unfortunately got cancelled.
