In the lead up many fans where hopeful of a first overseas concert in which all current members could attend without visa issues stemming from their label DR Music inability to apply for their Thai member Namfom also now known as Pony. This would be the second concert in which the Thai member would need to sit out due to the label being unable to complete the paperwork in time.
Fans have been questing why the label had been promoting the concert itself for weeks whilst not applying for a visa during that time. As a visa application process only takes a maximum for 1 week to process.
