The 4th annual ‘2012 ‘Korean Music Wave Festival‘, which will hold on September 15th at the World Cup Stadium in Incheon, has been put off.
HH Company gave their announcement and apology onto the Korean Wave Festival’s official website. They stated that the show put off due to expenses. The sudden cancellation has made many fans angy and disappointed because the artists were well-known idol groups such as KARA, Super Junior, F.T. Island, B.A.P, ZE:A, Boyfriend, Girl’s Day, Rainbow, A Pink, and so on.
Moreover, fans of Super Junior’s Leeteuk have expressed their concern becuase this is the last performance Leeteuk has took the stage before joining in the military later this year.
One fan commented, “I heard Leeteuk prepared a lot for this as it would probably be his last stage performance before enlisting. This is disappointing.” Another shared, “We won’t be able to see Leeteuk for the next two years. I’m shocked by the cancellation.”
Besides fans of Super Junior, other fandoms expressed their despair. They commented, “If it was going to be like this, you guys shouldn’t have announced the event to begin with” and “Think about everybody who had been waiting for the concert to take place. Please just continue with the concert.”
HH Company will return money to those who bought tickets.
