This would have been her first concert and we all know that solo artists like her (with small agencie) struggle to put on concerts.... what a pity. But safety and health first

Yes.
Sad, but given the seemingly uncontrolled spread of the Delta variant now going on in SK, this is the appropriate response - even being an "online" show, there are a lot of other behind-the-scenes people who need to be kept safe.
