The highly anticipated concert Music Bank in Chile that was to take place on November 12 had to be canceled mid-show. While this caused disappointment for many fans, the artists in the line-up are gaining praise for their own touching reactions to the cancellation.
Fans in Latin America were excited about the first global concert from KBS‘ Music Bank in three years.
The impressive line-up included performance masters NCT DREAM, TXT (also known as TOMORROW X TOGETHER), (G)I-DLE, STAYC, THE BOYZ, and ATEEZ.
Out of these groups, only THE BOYZ, STAYC and (G)I-DLE were able to perform before the concert was suspended. Shortly afterward it was fully canceled due to dangerous weather conditions. While the groups received a lot of well-earned praise for their professionalism amidst the thunderstorm…

…more than anything fans were concerned for their safety. This is because the heavy rainfall caused the stage to become extremely slippery, causing idols from each of the groups that performed to fall on multiple occasions.

The event was canceled after (G)I-DLE’s Shuhua took a particularly nasty fall while the group did their best to perform under the hail.

Seeing as the rest of the line-up didn’t get the chance to perform in front of their fans, they came onstage to apologize to and reassure them. And the earnestness with which they did so has gained them plenty of praise!
The members of TXT looked noticeably disappointed, especially since this was their first time in Chile.
Fans there said that the members apologized profusely for not being able to perform, proving how humble they are.
txt will not sing for the safety of them and the fans. they said that they want us to get home safely and that they are very sad because it was their first time in Chile. They have apologized and said thank you about 10 times, they really are the most humble#MusicBankInChile

They also made Latin American MOAs proud by saying, “Te amo MOA,” or “I love you, MOA”.

Afterward, Jaemin posted a touching message to Chilean NCTzens on his Instagram story…in Spanish.
The message made fans feel soft over his thoughtfulness, and it’s easy to see why.

While it’s unfortunate that fans in Latin America won’t be able to see TXT, NCT DREAM and ATEEZ show off their flawless performance skills, fans are more than happy to prioritize the idols’ safety!
