Boy group Big Bang has cancelled a part of its upcoming Taiwan fan meet following numerous pleas from the parents of young fans. The South Korean band reportedly invalidated its meet up scheduled for 2 PM on September 10 and has apparently refunded all the tickets.
As per exclusive news story by TV Report, the media outlet revealed that the parents complained about the group's fan meet schedule in lieu of upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival (Chuseok) in Taiwanese middle school and high school. According to the report, the parents of the fans opened about their concern on students skipping classes to attend the meet up scheduled in the afternoon. Apparently, the organizers paid heed to the pleas and cancelled a part of its meet up. However, the second leg schedule of Big Bang's September 10 fan meet at 7 pm remains unchanged.
Meanwhile, a source form the boy's label stated that aforesaid fan meet was not confirmed upon: "The extra Taipei performances were not confirmed. Since they were not confirmed it's not correct to say it was cancelled," YG Entertainment relayed.
