LOONA's Kim Lip trends on Twitter after fans claimed that she left the stage during the group's concert in Chicago in tears due to impolite fans

AKP STAFF

On August 11, LOONA greeted their fans in Chicago as the latest stop in the group's ongoing first world tour, 'LOONATHEWORLD'.

However, it was revealed that member Kim Lip was feeling "unwell" midway through the show, and ultimately sat out for the remainder of the night. The concert organizer also notified fans that Kim Lip would not be participating in the 'Meet & Greet' event after the show. 

According to fans on Twitter, an uncomfortable situation occurred some time during the Chicago show which brought Kim Lip to tears. 

Fans claimed that during Kim Lip's turn to talk, some fans in the crowd continued to cheer the name of fellow member Vivi, forcing Kim Lip to turn her back on the crowd and steal away tears. 

Many fans are currently showing their concerns for Kim Lip's well-being. 

Meanwhile, LOONA's 'LOONATHEWORLD' in the U.S. is expected to resume in Louisville on August 13.

This doesn’t make sense. Yeah people don’t need to be cheering for another during someone speaking time, but to just walk off upset about it? I think there is more to the situation than just that.

I have mixed feelings about this. We know that Vivi isn't necessarily one of the more popular group members, so if she did have a great fanbase there that's wonderful to hear. However, even if that was the case, it's never okay to be rude like that when someone else is doing their introduction. But these situations happen, and despite where or when it happened, celebrities learn to adapt and move forward. I don't want to hope that Kim Lip is (or was) ill, but at the same time I've always respected her professionalism on and off stage. So it seems strange to me that something like fans cheering one of her members names over her (even while she speaks) would be such a trigger. But to play devil's advocate, I don't know her, I'm not in her life or in her shoes, and I don't know all the struggles the group may or may not be going through. In the end, regardless of what may or may not be the truth of the situation, two things are clear: 1) Regardless of the celebrities, fans should always be respectful and not act in such a disrespectful manner no matter who you prefer, and 2) I hope that whatever Kim Lip is going through, she will be healthy, happy and supported going forward (I say the same for the rest of LOONA as well in this regard.)
