TWICE has canceled its upcoming fan meeting!
On October 31, JYP Entertainment issued a statement to announce the fan meeting has been canceled. Originally, the event was scheduled to celebrate the group’s 7th anniversary.
“’TWICE FANMEETING ONCE HALLOWEEN 3” was originally scheduled to take place on November 5. The event was also heavily themed around Halloween.
Read the agency’s statement:
As previously reported, at least 154 people died in relation to the crowd surge incident that happened in Itaewon on October 29. More than 100,000 people gathered in Itaewon to celebrate the Halloween weekend on October 29, and due to a suspected overcrowding surge, many began to faint and many people died as a result of the incident.
The Prime minister of South Korea has since announced a national mourning period until November 5. Flags will be hoisted, and public officials and institution employees will wear ribbons. All non-urgent events will also be postponed as a result.
