The recent concert in Jakarta for NCT 127‘s THE LINK encore experienced many struggles. Just before the show started, a bomb threat was discovered, and police were dispatched to examine the area. It was soon dismissed as a hoax. Later, the concert was stopped halfway through due to a crowd pushing in the standing areas. With many fans fainting in the audience, the show was called off with five songs left to go.

The incident left fans feeling sorry for the boys’ shock due to the disarray. A project was carried out on the second day of the concert, with fans holding up apology banners to say sorry to the members. Jaehyun also addressed the project, sending his love to the fans.

On the second day of the concert, the head of the promoter’s team stepped out on stage before the show began. She got to her knees, tearfully asking the fans to behave this time.
The scene broke the hearts of many NCTzens globally. Many pointed out that it was by no means her or the promoters’ fault. The incident occurred due to unruly fans, not a lack of organization or staff.
Why are the promoters apologizing??? They did their responsibility of bringing 127 to the country. This is so heartbreaking.
The least the fans can do is reciprocate the effort by behaving, but they DIDNT. The FANS should be the ones bowing and apologizing. Have some manners wtf https://t.co/koJb96HZVs

Such an incident has never happened before. It is rare for promoters to address issues in person and directly. The desperation of the staff touched the hearts of many, who insisted that it was not her fault.
this is heartbreaking that the head organizer begged on her knees asking ADULT people to behave when in fact they're doing their best for this concert https://t.co/8hYdn1lsZ7

Thankfully, the concert ended without incident. Fans were highly well-behaved on the second day. Although there was a halt mid-concert, it was simply due to sound issues. The promoter was seen crying after it was all over. According to fans, the police on hand and the other staff hugged and comforted her.
