The event starred K-pop artists such as Se7en, MONSTA X, TAHITI, and Seven O' clock at the SSE Arena, Wembley. It was planned to be a successful night full of celebration but unfortunately, it turned out to be a mess. The venue has the capacity to hold around 13,000 people but according to people who attended, only around 300 people were there which resulted in the organizer, KPOP KNIGHT, giving away free tickets.
Autentycznie właśnie się popłakałam przez tą sytuację z mx związaną z kpopnight w Londynie, chłopacy lecieli kilkanaście godzin samolotem, zapewne bardzo dużo trenowali, żeby ostatecznie wystąpić przed garstką ludzi licząca jakieś 300 osób, w miejscu które mogłoby zmieścić 13k pic.twitter.com/0NAqDpwMWT— ketchup (@buyyfavxpig) January 27, 2018
Upon seeing this, many K-pop fans have begun to release new information on the organizer of the event and as to why it did not meet their expectations. One fan stated that the tickets were overpriced (120 British Pounds or 170 USD) and MONSTA X was added at the last minute to compensate for the lack of ticket sales. To add insult to injury, some people have stated that the organizer even gave out MONSTA X's hotel information.
