TWICE arrived at Gimpo International Airport this afternoon after completing their scheduled activities in Japan. The members were met with a huge crowd mixed with fans and media that one member, TWICE's leader, Jihyo, unfortunately fell down after a fan accidentally tripped over a stool.
JYP Entertainment immediately released a blacklisting notice to avoid similar incident again that may threaten their artists as well as other people's safety at the airport.
Hi. This is JYPE.
At Gimpo International Airport today, an accident occured when our artist fell down due to disorder and excessive photography.
"Following artists after airport immigration screening" is strictly prohibited according to our company's blacklist regulations and if you violate this, you will not be able to participate in public broadcasting and all other activites.
We may also seek legal action if the same issue recurs. All matters of safety are not only for our artists but also for the fans and the general public. Please always keep the order and refrain from prohibitions such as following TWICE during unofficial schedule.
As an agency, we will do our best to ensure the safety of our artists.
After the incident, Jeongyeon posted on Instagram to reassure concerned fans.
"We came back safely. Thank you for coming to the airport to see us but I hope for everyone not to get hurt. Be careful going home. The weather is also really cold. Don't catch a cold."
