Korean Netizens Express Their Concern About The Pushing Crowds At NCT 127’s Jakarta Concert, Given The Recent Itaewon Human Crush Emergency

“I’m not a fan, but I hope everyone takes care of their mental health.”

NCT 127‘s recent concert on November 4, 2022, in Jakarta, came to an abrupt halt. The concert was halted due to safety concerns after around 30 fans fainted in the hall. It was due to severe crowding and pushing issues that happened in the standing pits of the concert. It got so bad that the boys themselves had to ask fans to stop pushing.

The promoters made the executive decision to end the concert there and then. Of course, fans were upset about the decision, with some bursting into tears. On the other hand, many expressed concern for the artists due to the recent ongoings in South Korea. Recently, many people died in a human crush on Halloween in the popular district of Itaewon, Seoul.

Naturally, everyone was worried about the onslaught of emotions and PTSD that the pushing crowd would bring for both NCT 127 and the fans. The incident hit especially close to the hearts of Korean netizens.
