has abruptly canceled their tour in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
On July 27, TWICE sent a cancellation notice on their official Twitter account with this link attached. The link showed two messages, one in Korean, and the other in English, apologizing to fans that their 'TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park' in Kuala Lumpur had been canceled due to a safety concern in the venue. The tour was scheduled to be on July 28.
"This is JYP Entertainment.
It is with great regret to inform you that TWICE 2ND TOUR 'TWICELAND ZONE 2 : Fantasy Park' in KUALA LUMPUR which was scheduled 28th of July, 2018 has been cancelled due to safety issue in the venue.
We ask for your generous understanding that this decision has been made considering the safety of the artists and audience as our top priority.
We are truly sad to deliver this announcement to all our fans who have been waiting for TWICE. JYP Entertainment and TWICE will put more efforts."
Safety concerns are seemingly becoming a much larger issue for K-Pop artists and fans alike, the most notable recent example being threats against BTS' Jimin
. However, this seems more to do with an issue with the venue itself. What do you think about the last-minute safety cancellation?
