hyukoh under fire for canceling their appearance just minutes before going on stage


Band hyukoh is under fire for canceling their appearance at the last minute. 

On May 15, hyukoh was invited to perform at a festival at Dankook University. The band was scheduled to go on stage after ballad singer Jung Seung Hwan. After an hour of setting up the instruments, the 3 members Lim Dong GunLin Hyun Jae, and Lee In Woo came on stage, and said to the audience, "Oh Hyuk is sick. We don't think we can perform." They then left after apologizing. 

The abrupt cancelation has become a hot topic in online communities. Some are showing understanding, while others are criticizing the band for lacking professionalism. 

Comments stated"How can he perform when he's sick? He probably waited until he felt better but ultimately decided he couldn't. Let's not bash him until we get an official statement." Another comment said, "They should've explained why and how Oh Hyuk is sick to the audience who waited for a long time."

hyukoh's agency has yet to release an official statement on the issue. Meanwhile, the band is scheduled to attend the Inha University festival tomorrow on May 16.

That's fair enough? lmao

They came out, explaining and apologised. Even though it's disappointing for the people who are there, the reason it was announced late could have been because Oh Hyuk was thinking he might pull through enough to perform. I think an earlier announcement saying they might not be able to perform would've been good warning and a good idea but it doesn't necessarily mean that they could've done that; to be fair, Oh Hyuk could've even become sick during of after setting up the instruments.

The most important part; hopefully he feels better soon~

In the west, that happens when a member is too loaded up on drugs or booze to perform (Amy Winehouse, Jim Morrison, Pete Doherty etc.) and I can't imagine it's much different with rock stars in Korea.
