Full Statement:

[NOTICE] Season of GFRIEND in Manila 공연 연기 안내

To all our buddies in the Philippines,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of the 2018 GFRIEND FIRST CONCERT ’Season of GFRIEND’ in Manila from August 19 to August 26.

As you have probably heard, all flights to and from the Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport have been cancelled or delayed due to the recent accident. One of those flights happened to be the one GFriend and our crew was taking to get to the 2018 GFRIEND FIRST CONCERT ’Season of GFRIEND’ in Manila.

While we were absolutely thrilled to meet all our fans in the Philippines this weekend, it appears that we will have to reschedule as we will not be able to make it to Manila in time.

Information about the rescheduled show, as well as the refund policy for those who may not be able to make it on the new date, will be announced shortly via MyMusicTaste’s Facebook.

Thank you for all your support and understanding, and we can’t wait to see all of you on August 26.
