“Sangam Jamboree K-pop concert to be canceled if typhoon is severe” skit director, Minister of Public Safety sophistry

“If the typhoon is severe, we will consider canceling the Jamboree K-pop concert,” said Minister of the Interior and Safety Lee Sang-min.

Minister of the Interior and Safety Lee Sang-min held a briefing on the status of the Jamboree’s emergency evacuation at the Korea Press Center in Jung-gu, Seoul, at 2 p.m. on the 9th and answered questions from reporters. The most important topic was whether or not to hold a K-pop concert at the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree scheduled for the 11th.

Minister Lee Sang-min said, “The K-pop concert is the program that receives the most attention from the scouts attending the jamboree. Initially, we planned to hold the concert inside the Saemangeum camp, but due to weather issues (typhoon) and recommendations from medical staff, we postponed the date. We moved it to the nearest and safest venue, Jeonju World Cup Stadium. But in the meantime, a lot of Jamboree members traveled to Seoul. We decided that Seoul World Cup Stadium was the most suitable venue, so we changed it again.”

“There were many difficulties in the process of changing the venue for the K-pop concert,” he said, adding, “There is a possibility of damage to the stadium grass. We can’t say it won’t happen at all. We are working on ways to minimize it. I understand that the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism changed the venue after many consultations.”

Minister of Interior and Safety Lee Sang-min also addressed the possibility of canceling K-pop concerts. He said, “The K-pop concert is the most important program. The weather on that day is important. According to the report from the Korea Meteorological Administration, the typhoon is expected to pass that morning. We will hold the K-pop concert after the discharge ceremony. The typhoon will pass before the farewell ceremony.”

“If it rains, it will be very light rain. According to the head of the Korea Meteorological Administration, the impact of the typhoon will be small. The K-pop concert will go on as scheduled. I’m not worried about the time of the concert, but I’m worried that the sound and stage equipment will be damaged by the typhoon before the concert. We will take thorough safety measures. It’s just a prediction,” he said, adding, “Safety is our top priority, so if the typhoon’s impact is severe, we are considering canceling the concert.”

As such, the MOCA has changed the venue of the Jamboree K-pop concert twice. This affected K League clubs Jeonbuk Hyundai and FC Seoul, who call Jeonju World Cup Stadium and Seoul World Cup Stadium home, respectively. Jeonbuk was scheduled to host Incheon United in the FA Cup quarterfinals here on Sept. 9, but had to postpone the game due to the K-pop concert venue change. Their opponents, Incheon, had to pack up their belongings in Jeonju and return to Incheon.

FC Seoul also came under fire. When hosting a K-pop concert, which is a large-scale performance, it is inevitable that the grass will be damaged. Last year, the team spent about 1 billion won on turf construction and successfully hosted the national soccer team’s A-match and foreign team visits to Korea, but now they have to keep their eyes peeled as the turf at Anbang is damaged due to a unilateral notice from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Football Association. 먹튀검증

This shows how little the Ministry of Culture cares about the K League. World Jamboree, an international event, was held, and problems popped up here and there. Speaking of which, the K-pop concert was a big deal. They unilaterally took away Jeonju Castle, which was nearby, and then took away Sangam because a typhoon was coming.

During this process, there was no two-way communication with the K League clubs. The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Football Association only sent letters to the K League clubs. On the 8th, the KFA issued a foolish statement saying, “We regret the disruption to the soccer fans who planned to attend the game and the two clubs preparing for the game.” The jamboree skit has left a huge hole in the soccer world.
