SM Cancels Halloween Party In Wake Of Itaewon Tragedy

SM Entertainment has cancelled its annual Halloween party in the wake of last night’s tragedy in Itaewon.

The agency was originally planning to stream the red carpet for its “SMTOWN WONDERLAND” bash online for the first time this year, but in the wee hours of the morning on October 30, it announced that not only the livestream but the entire party itself had been cancelled.

SM Entertainment’s full statement is as follows:

This is SM Entertainment.

We are informing you that the live broadcast of the “SMTOWN WONDERLAND 2022” red carpet, which was scheduled to be streamed live for free today for KWANGYA CLUB ACE members on the global platform Beyond LIVE for approximately one hour starting from 6:15 p.m., has been cancelled.

Because the “SMTOWN WONDERLAND 2022” event itself has been cancelled, there will be no livestream of the red carpet either. We ask for fans’ understanding.

Thank you.

On the night of October 29, at least 146 people died and another 150 were injured after being crushed in a large crowd during Halloween celebrations in the Itaewon neighborhood of Seoul.

We offer our deepest condolences to everyone who lost loved ones in last night’s tragedy.
