In June, Blockberry Creative announced that LOONA would be kicking off their first world tour on July 31. Soon after, they announced that the group’s member Chuu would be absent through the entirety of the tour for apparent health reasons. Though this news made fans confused and disappointed, Orbits showed up for their girls. But now with multiple members having to sit out shows, fans are getting increasingly concerned about the group’s health and wellbeing.
Recently, a short clip was uploaded on Twitter where the group’s member Yeojin was seen collapsing on stage while performing at Mexico City. But this is not the sole reason why fans are deeply worried for the girls. Members Choerry and Olivia Hye also had to sit out multiple performances due to their physical condition, while Haseul is performing with a sling on her arm. During a performance in New Mexico, there were only seven out of eleven members performing on stage.

In less than a month’s time, LOONA has put on 14 shows in 13 cities, and also performed at KCON LA. After the American leg of their tour, they immediately start with the European leg in September, and then they have new schedules planned in South East Asia in October.
Feeling nice, feeling good. Flip that!
ORBITs, where you at!? LOONA is coming to Manila this October 21, 2022 for the #POPstival2022 at the CCP Open Grounds, Pasay City! Let's meet there, let's do that, that, that! 😉

Fans were already concerned about the tight tour schedule that visibly didn’t accommodate rest days for the artists. Now, after witnessing so many of the girls suffering while trying to put on shows, Orbits are demanding that the girls get an appropriate break to heal.
serious action needs to take place no more tour stops no more dates loona need to rest and go home. fainting on stage is not normal. not having time to sleep, eat, or rest is inevitably causing serious health concerns @_mymusictaste @loonaStaff

it is clearly becoming increasingly unsafe for loona to continue touring. no one is happy with the results of this. it is your responsibility to take care of your artists. postpone the remaining dates of the tour and allow loona to rest. @_mymusictaste @BBC_blockberry

Many Orbits also dread that the girls might feel guilty about not being able to perform to their fullest potential on their very first tour. So, it is better that this tour is paused for the moment to let them recover than to let them sabotage their health.
loona's europe tour needs to be delayed to hell, if not cancelled. these girls are too stubborn and passionate about what they do to half-ass the rest of the shows that they're gonna keep going until their bodies give out AND THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE TO.
