Kangta To Not Participate In SMTOWN Concerts This Weekend Following Recent Controversy
Following his recent controversy involving Woo Joo Ahn and Oh Jung Yeon, it has been announced that Kangta will not participate in the SMTOWN concerts this weekend.
On August 3, a notice was posted on SMTOWN’s official Japanese website regarding changes to the lineup of SMTOWN Live 2019 in Tokyo.
The notice stated, “Kangta, who was set to appear in the concerts, will be withdrawing his participation due to his poor (health) condition. He has been trying to recuperate in order to stand on stage again, but it looks like it will be difficult for him to do so.”
They concluded by stating, “We apologize for sharing this news just before the concert. We ask for your understanding.”
The news comes following a series of events where he and racing model Woo Joo Ahn clarified their relationship after she posted old videos of them together, which was then followed by claims from TV personality Oh Jung Yeon who implied that Kangta cheated on her with Woo Joo Ahn when they were dating. Woo Joo Ahn has responded to Oh Jung Yeon’s post while Kangta has stayed silent on the issue.
The Tokyo SMTOWN concerts will be held from August 3 to 5.
