2020 K-Culture Festival has now confirmed that Red Velvet will not be holding their fan meeting this weekend.
The festival is being held online from October 10 to November 29 and is organized by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of South Korea. Red Velvet was scheduled to hold a fan meeting through a live broadcast on YouTube on October 24 as Global Hallyu Ambassadors for the festival.
A report on October 23 by Herald Pop stated that Red Velvet had notified the organizers of their intention to not attend. A source from the festival later stated that they were in discussion about the event.
In the evening that day, 2020 K-Culture Festival posted on its Instagram with the message: “The Red Velvet online fan meeting scheduled for October 24 was canceled due to the artist’s circumstances. We ask for your understanding. Thank you.”
A controversy was sparked this week over allegations made about Red Velvet member Irene’s behavior and attitude. After an editor and stylist accused Irene of bringing her to tears with her harsh words, Irene met with her to apologize and issued a statement of apology on October 22.
