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."

Poor my baby CRUSH!  this situation happened so many times already!!  The organisers should think of a backup plan if this kind of weather occur. Thank god no one was injured or anything bad happen.

It's bad enough for those who just stand and sing but seeing 2PM's name in the article bloody damn gave me a heart attack!! Really?! They're expected to dance and sing on a slippery stage under the pouring rain?!! Like one of the netizens said, even if it looks ugly, put up a tent man!

This proves that even through a hurricane Crush's vocals would be smooth as ever lol. But in all seriousness, AT LEAST GIVE THE MAN A RAINCOAT OR UMBRELLA! jfc

They manage to plan out every bite of food on these poor idols 500 calorie a-day diets ... maybe arrange in advance a tarp or something in case of rain.

Is not just a rain, it's a bad condition to work. Just to get the rain without protection is really bad! I think they should think about security and the health of the artist... I'm always shocked when watching someone is dancing while raining, that's really dangerous!

Sheeh Amoeba let him go in this weather. I wonder if AOMG would just be like F this we out of here. Maybe not, could be rude in Korea or something.

I'm so much of a Crush fan that I knew it was him with his face covered in the cover photo almost instantly.
