On July 24 KST, global K-Pop content platform Hello82 confirmed that they have canceled ATEEZ-related promotional events in Las Vegas after discovering the issue. According to their statement, "the mistake was identified and rectified after a short period of time" and "the Las Vegas store removed all ATEEZ THE WORLD EP.1: MOVEMENT albums from their store" since the incident.

The music store is currently tracking down purchasers of the album, wishing to cancel the purchases and offering a full refund.

i guess with PHYSCIAL albums you have this problem where you have to ship them to retailers BEFORE the official release date, to avoid a backlog, then the store has to KEEP the stocks hidden in the back end, until the official release date while taking up the space.

sometimes an un-suspecting empolyee or shop manager may see those boxes of albums lying behind the store and think "WHAT ARE THESE doing here, Put them up on the Shelves!!" not knowing the offical date it can be sold.
