According to Wassup's label Mafia Records, the girl group's schedules in China have been canceled abruptly. 


The label relayed, "We're facing unexpected trouble after learning that Wassup's appearance at the Wei Shang 20th Anniversary Big Star Concert, taking place August 5, has been canceled; furthermore, all of Wassup's schedules for the latter half of 2016 have likewise been canceled."


They continued, "We had heard rumors about China prohibiting K-Pop acts, but when we contacted the host of the event, we received positive answers, so we were preparing for the schedule as planned, but then the schedule was suddenly canceled."


Tensions between China and Korea have been escalating after Korea's decision to deploy THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense), and many speculate that the numerous, unexplained cancellations of Hallyu stars' Chinese schedules seem to be their direct results.

    As observation, HALLYU seems to be some kind of 'logic' where say PRChina citizens are 'sold' on the idea that it is 'OKAY to FEEL GOOD about making (S.KOREAN) PSY WEALTHY ($$$$).' Which, I am *not* so clear why this is an 'easy sell' to PRChina citizens exactly. To be honest, I am *surprised* at the level of SUCCESS that *S.KOREAN* K-pop Idols have achieved in PRChina; and also JAPAN too. Maybe the FUTURE for K-POP Agencies like JYPe Agency, is to find PRChina citizens like FEI (MISS A Group) and target them at the PRChina market. In other words, the K-pop Agencies become more *training* firms for PRChina citizens. And then, the AGENCY does *share* in their (hopeful) success in PRChina. Obviously, the 'danger' is that these PRChina citizens do 'quit their contract' on the Agency. As did KRIS, LUHAN, and TAO from EXO Group with SMe Agency.

    Guys, it doesn't have anything to do with what's going on with the THAAD situation because they had nothing but positive reasons why all of their Chinese promotions have been cancelled, that's all.  So therefore, hopefully all of their Chinese WAFFLEs can be understanding of this and know that there's gonna be a next time for them to see Wa$$up in action in concert.
