Previously it was reported that Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye were caught in a dilemma concerning their April 18 concert from the “Hallyu Star Family Concert” series put on by Lotte at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium. Lee Minho and Park Shin Hye, in addition to the other stars in attendance, requested that the event be postponed in light of the recent Korean ferry tragedy, but Lotte objected, citing that it’s impossible to postpone something for which 12,000 foreign fans are specifically flying in for. Lotte had already postponed the shows on April 19 and 20, which are going to be for Korean fans.
The April 18 concert went on as planned, shortened from its original two hours and a half to one hour. Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye went on stage dressed in black and simply met their fans without putting on any special performances and events originally planned. It was solemn event, with everyone from all sides doing the best they can in the given situation.
