On October 31, Netflix released an official statement to announce the news. “The Fabulous” upcoming press conference and premiere has been delayed following Itaewon’s tragedy. The drama was originally scheduled to be released on November 4.
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.
