KBS1's 'Open Concert' is under fire from netizens after filming their show in the pouring rain.
The concert aired on November 6 and featured Tae Jin Ah, Seo Mook Tak, 2PM, Crush, Kwon Jin Ah, and others. Although it aired yesterday, the show was actually filmed on November 2. In the beginning of the show, it rained a little bit, but as the program continued, the amount of rain increased to the point where people could not keep their eyes open.
Especially during Crush's performance, it rained so much, that the singer was drenched in the rain water, and he even had to wipe his face while signing, trying to keep his eyes open.
Artists who performed with their band could perform under a tent because of the instruments, but most of the singers were forced to perform in the pouring rain.

It is difficult to defend the lack of preparation because the Incheon area where the show was recorded, there had been a rainstorm warning since 4 PM; the recording began at 7:30 PM.
Netizens who watched the show are commenting, "The MC had a raincoat and an umbrella. Why can't they be considerate to the singers," "I don't understand why they did this when there's the potential danger of electrocution," "I get that they have to record the show because it has been planned, but even if it looks ugly, they should've used a tent."
