TREASURE Fans Outraged Over The Group’s Extremely Packed Schedule For Their Japan Arena Tour

“Isn’t this considered abuse at this point…?”

On November 26, TREASURE began their Japan Arena Tour 2022-23, and of course they have already put on some amazing shows in Hokkaido!

The number of concerts they’re holding in just one month in Japan — 24 total — shows how popular the K-Pop group is in the country, as it doesn’t seem like they had any trouble selling tickets.

However, fans have been speaking out about just how tightly packed TREASURE’s schedule is for this arena tour, and when you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why.

Not only are there ten different dates where the members are holding two concerts on the same day — which are reportedly 3+ hours long — there are even some back-to-back schedules like this, which leads fans to wonder how they’re supposed to rest at all.

According to the schedule, TREASURE will have two concerts in a day on both December 6 and 7, as well as December 17 and 18 and even December 24 and 25.

This schedule would be ridiculously packed at any time of the year, but considering that this is a time during the holidays where many people get to enjoy some kind of break, seeing TREASURE being overworked like this is even more upsetting.

The topic even started a post on an online Korean forum, in which the original author expresses their concerns by saying, “If they are performing twice a day, they should rest the next day… What kind of schedule is this? ㅠㅠ Ugggghhh ㅠㅠ TREASURE, come back to the country…”

And many commenters shared the same opinion as the author. In fact, there were few to no comments expressing any other opinion.

  • “Even performing twice in a day is impressive but 2 days…? Seems like they did not consider their physical strength one bit”
  • “They’re gonna faint… crazy…”
  • “The kids started the tour yesterday and they said that their condition wasn’t good today….ㅠㅠ my heart is breaking now”
  • “No but is this even possible…?”
  • “Isn’t this considered abuse at this point…?”
  • “I’ve seen people holding fansigns 2 days in a row but it’s my first time seeing 2 concerts in a day… they must be exhausted…”

International fans have chimed in with their concern too, and are also overwhelmingly worried that the members of TREASURE will be too over-worked for this tour.

  • “Didn’t YG stan always bragging about how YG treated their line up like human?”
  • “Insanity, I honestly would riot as a fan. I could not enjoy the concert knowing they’re being overworked like this. Couldn’t even enjoy those fancams.”
  • “There are many days in a year, but why is this company collecting all the programs in one part of the year?”
  • “Seems like YG wants to suck them dry and let them go. Korea needs to regulate their companies better”
  • “Wtf this is insane and should be illegal!! I hope they take of their health”
  • “YG is trying to send these kids to the hospital”

We hope that TREASURE’s members will be able to make it through this tour without any health issues due to their packed schedule!
