Blockberry Creative releases first statement regarding LOONA's Yeojin collapsing during Mexico City concert

AKP STAFF

LOONA's agency is currently looking into member Yeojin's incident at the group's recent Mexico City concert.


As previously reported, during LOONA's recent world tour show at Mexico City's Pepsi Center on August 28 (local time), Yeojin was seen collapsing on stage at the end of a stage performance. Fan-taken videos of the moment quickly spread through social media both, raising concern from fans around the world.

Blockberry Creative
has since taken to Korean press, where they made a public statement that they are currently "checking in with the local team" in regard to the situation.

Meanwhile, while an official explanation has yet to be released, many fans speculate that one reason for the fall may have been the group's packed schedule. After completing their appearance on Mnet's 'Queendom 2,' the group then made their comeback with mini album 'FL!P THAT' and headed out on the North American leg of their tour soon after, where they performed in 14 different cities between August 1 and 28. The European leg will be held in September, and in October, the group will be busy with Japan activities to promote their Japanese comeback "LUMINOUS," which is set for release on September 28.

I think this year will have to be a learning experience for smaller agencies about Mexico city. With the high altitude, it's better to plan in a few days extra to acclimatize or this will keep happening. It's nothing dangerous, but considering that severe head injures can occur if you have an unlucky fall, it's better not to risk it.

They're pushing a bit hard with this tour schedule.

I've read other places that they've been performing with only 7 of the 12 members at some shows.
