Fans express anger that Kim Soo Hyun was inconvenienced by poor event management in China

Fans are boiling with anger due to a recent snafu that greatly inconvenienced not only themselves but also their beloved star, Kim Soo Hyun.  Back on October 10, Kim Soo Hyun went to Zhengzhou, China in order to take part in a fan meeting as the model for a Chinese beverage company.  

However, due to the event's poor management and handling of the situation, he had to be on standby for over seven hours!  The fan meeting was supposed to start at 7 PM, but the host organization made a mistake, causing a 3-hour delay.  Meanwhile, Kim Soo Hyun had already been waiting since 3 PM.

As soon as he got on the stage, he apologized to his fans in Chinese.  On top of that, he participated in the event despite not being in the best condition, so he said toward his fans, "Be careful of catching a cold."

A fan who had been at the event stated, "My heart went out for Kim Soo Hyun who was doing his best, and seeing that hurt my heart."  

What happened was the fan meeting was originally supposed to open at a college, but upon hearing Kim Soo Hyun was coming, over a thousand fans came to the site. However, the organization had failed to secure permission for the space ahead of time and they did not have enough security guards, so they had received an order to cancel the event temporarily.

The organization then moved the event to a hotel nearby, but the circumstances were even poorer.  The location was not good and stage equipments had not been prepared. Ultimately, the event opened at 10 PM instead of 7 PM and lasted only 20 minutes.

Fans protest Starship is overworking Soyu

SISTAR fans are expressing indignation at the group's agency Starship Entertainment for forcing Soyu to adhere to a hectic schedule despite the singer's injuries.

On MBC's 'Arirang Grand Festival' which aired this past October 5, Soyu didn't look to be in her best condition, which had worried fans. Watching the group's performance of "Loving You," one can clearly see that Soyu isn't as energetic as the other members and that her expression looks pained. Some netizens had criticized, "She has no manners," blaming the singer's 'attitude.'

However, fans protested at the agency once discovering that Soyu was suffering from an injury and that she was forced to attend all schedules despite her less-than-ideal condition. SISTAR fans were quick to indicate that the agency was not being considerate enough towards Soyu. 

SISTAR fans are sending messages of support to Soyu, saying, "I hope Soyu feels better soon after receiving treatment," wishing for the singer to return with smiles the next time she steps on stage.

TGM Events 'official explanation of BTS' poorly managed 'Highlight Tour' creates even more uproar

As you might already know, BTS held their North American tour, the 'Highlight Tour' in San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta and Toronto last month. But instead of an amazing experience by all concertgoers, many ARMYwere in an uproar over poor management by the organizers, TGM Events.

There were several issues at every concert in all four cities, and TGM Events' Nadia has released a five page 'Statement of Clarification', uploaded in the form of images on their official Facebook page.

But this official statement does not appear to be fulfilling its original intention. Concertgoers are saying her explanation is filled with excuses and blaming of others, rather than a proper apology and admitting to a lack of planning and preparation.
