The K-pop super concert organising company in Korea, Dynasty company Ltd has apologised to K-pop fans in Bhutan for the complications during the preparation of the event last week.

Five Korean pop artists, PSY, Chi-yeul Hwang, Lovelyz, Gfriend, and Boys Republic cancelled their visit to Bhutan for the super concert on June 17 because of unavoidable reasons, according to the head organiser, Kim Minkyeong.

Kim Minkyeong apologised to the K-pop fans in the country at the concert for not being able to bring the five K-pop artists to perform at the concert.

“Since the organising committee had problems with arranging a venue and short of fund from sponsors in a very short time, we were not able to bring artists to Bhutan as planned,” she said.

The organiser also mentioned that she learnt a lesson from this concert and committed that she will prepare for a K-pop concert by famous Korean artists in Bhutan in future.

The last moment cancellation of five K-pop artists including Park Jae-Sang, popularly known as PSY disappointed fans, mostly students, who had eagerly waited for the artists. But the five other K-pop bands – Double Eight, Badkiz, Seven O’clock, Steller, Classy and Fresh Boyz enthralled the audience at the Changlimithang stadium in Thimphu.

The organising committee will donate a total of 1,024 pieces of Taekwondo mats  worth Nu 1.2 million, used to protect the artificial turf at the Changlimithang ground during the event, to Bhutan Taekwondo Federation.

About 16 dzongkhags will receive 64 pieces of mats each measuring 64 square metres.
