During the recent 2019 Seoul Music Awards, many idols were seated in circular tables near the stage, but the concert producers failed to realize that the idols’ seats were placed way too close to the pyrotechnics.
During the opening for BTS’s ‘FAKE LOVE’ performance, the pyrotechnics were set off multiple times. The explosions, immense heat, and fire frightened the idols as they ran up out of their seats.
The idols covered their heads and their ears as the explosions continued.
Furious fans criticized the event coordinators for putting the idols in dangerous situations that could definitely gotten out of hand.
the pyrotechnics were cool when it was shown on tv but damn sma is so stupid.
idols were literally beside the pyrotechnic machines and yall blasted those without warning them??? if someone got hurt the blame would inevitably go to bts bc it was their stage pic.twitter.com/dJI7cIx2gb

Yeah. SMA is at fault. If they knew that there will be pyrotechnics then the tables of the performers or even fans should be in a safe range. This isnt okay no not one bit

SMA needs to reconsider their pyrotechnics, or at least seat the artists further away. Someone could have gotten hurt because of their ignorant arrangement. https://t.co/bKVJ8cvjrb

Thankfully, none of the idols sustained any major injuries as they continued on with the show.
