Lotte Duty Free will be simplifying the event with Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye.

From April 18 to April 20, Lotte Duty Free were to hold the Family Concert with Hallyu Stars at the Jamsil Gymnastics Stadium with Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye present.

However, on April 16, the tragic sinking of the passenger ship happened, causing the entire nation to grieve with broadcasting, music, and movie industries cancelling all programs and events. Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye’s agencies also requested that the event be canceled as it would not fit the grieving period.

Lotte Duty Free canceled the events on April 19 and 20, but stated that it cannot cancel the event on April 18 as it involves foreign audience members.

Speaking with Newsen on April 18, Lotte Duty Free said, “The April 18 event will unavoidably be taking place. However, the scheduled concert and performances will not be happening. There will be no singing. Instead, the event will be simplified and taking place in a somber mood, hoping for the safe return of the missing people from the SEWOL accident.”

“Lotte Duty Free is also suffering in silence. We have already postponed the April 19 and 20 events to take place for people in Korea, but for the April 18 event, more than 10,000 people from abroad have already arrived. We contemplated a lot, but at the end of it, we decided that the promise between the fans and customers is important. So we will be running this event quietly and simply with the stars interacting with fans in a light manner. We’re not just thoughtlessly pushing for this event,’ said Lotte Duty Free.

Lastly, Lotte Duty Free stated, “We are continuously talking with the actors and agencies. We will be going ahead with the event, but we’re doing our best not to disturb the mood of the nation right now.”

Meanwhile, Park Shin Hye’s agency, S.A.L.T Entertainment carefully said, “We’re still discussing this. We think the best solution is to postpone the event. However, because it seems difficult, we are trying to find the wisest solution.”

The scale and nature of the event has changed. Even so, the actors attending are still asking for it to be postponed. The outcome of the event is currently gathering attention.
