Samsung Music Puts a Hold on EXO Special Events for Now
With EXO’s comeback postponed, Samsung Music has decided to put a hold on all of its EXO events.
While it successfully hosted EXO’s comeback show on April 15, with the ongoing SEWOL tragedy that occurred on April 16, Samsung Music has decided to put a hold on its EXO special events until further notice.
Samsung Music posted a pop up window on its main website with a message that reads, “We would like to send words of comfort to the victims and families who are experiencing much pain due to an unexpected accident. We sincerely hope that everyone be rescued and returned to their parents.
As we at Samsung Music join the entire nation in desperately hoping that even just one person be rescued until the last moment, we ask for your understanding as we put a temporary hold on all EXO special events and fan signings. We will announce when the events will take place again through the announcements page. For the people who have already entered for the fan signing, your entries will still be valid and will be counted when the event reopens again.
Once again, we express our deepest sorrows to the victims and parents of the SEWOL sinking tragedy, and gather all our strength in praying that all the missing will be rescued.”
Meanwhile, after a passenger ship sunk on April 16, 64 people have been confirmed dead with 238 still missing as of April 21.
