Fans of EXO claim they have been "scammed" by 'BBQ & SBS Super Concert'.
'SBS Super Concert' hosted by chicken franchise 'BBQ' recently announced the final lineup for this year's show. Previously, 'BBQ & SBS Super Concert' included EXO in the lineup, but the boy group is nowhere to be seen in the final lineup announcement, making EXO fans extremely upset and angry.
Fans are especially angry because 'BBQ & SBS Super Concert' has been holding a "chicketing" event, where fans can use their 'BBQ' receipt number from their food orders to enter to win a free ticket to the show. EXO-Ls, who believed EXO will be performing at the event, have been purposely making numerous purchases at 'BBQ' in order to attend the event. However, the boy group is not attending after all.
In addition, in the text message alert announcing the final lineup, 'EXO confirmed' was taken out, and it stated that another artist, "on EXO's level", will be coming instead.
Fans fired complaints against 'BBQ', stating, "They boosted sales by using EXO but EXO won't even be there. This is nonsense", "I want my money back", "I already purchased bus tickets, hotels, and everything to see EXO. This is terrible."
In response to the issue, a rep from 'BBQ' stated, "The text message alert was sent out by individual owners of the franchise," and added, "We did come near an agreement with EXO's side but they couldn't attend because their comeback schedule has been delayed."
