Despite recent cancellations of promotions and other public commitments from local celebrities in respect of the Sewol Ferry incident, Lee Minho and Park Shinhye decided to push through for the event organised by Lotte Duty Free.

On April 18th, a representative from Lotte Duty Free explained that they have decided to have continue with the commitment after holding a lengthy discussion with its respective agencies. The event continued as planned as majority of the guests were foreigners who have travel plans booked for South Korea. At least 10,000 foreign guests were scheduled to attend the event and sudden cancellations were inevitable.

However, to show respect for the mourning nation, Lotte Duty Free made changes to the program, allowing it to be more solemn.

Lotte Duty Free also cancelled two succeeding dates originally scheduled for the events and only held one set today.

South Korea is currently mourning for the 268 passengers who remain missing after a ferry capsized and sank off the shore of South Korea last Wednesday. Since then, most broadcasting agencies postponed the airing of various entertainment programs, whilst most celebrities cancelling most fan events, promotions and more.
