V Live Awards Reportedly 1/3 Empty Because X1 Did Not Perform

Many fans chose not to go.

The 2019 V Live Awards V HEARTBEAT aired on November 16, 2019. X1 was pulled out of the performance lineup a day before the event as Mnet is currently under public scrutiny for their vote manipulation controversy.

Fans immediately noticed the empty seats in the Gocheok Skydome.

They chose not to attend the event as their favorite group would not be performing anyway, going so far as to rip up their tickets.

They stated that it was not for the best that Mnet cancelled X1’s performance.

Apparently only one third of the Gocheok Sky Dome was occupied, including non-ONEIT seats dedicated to other fandoms.

The event was still mostly empty even after the show began.

The Gocheok Sky Dome has a capacity of 16,813. When full, as in X1’s debut showcon, it can hold thousands of fans.
