Not only the WEEEKLY members who were preparing for the evebt, but all the people involved in the showcase, including officials from the agency, were evacuated to a safe place.
The Fire Authority has now put out the fire. The new girl group carefully waited until the evacuation order was over, but inevitably had to cancel the performance itself for safety reasons.
WEEEKLY debuted at 6 PM KST on June 30 after releasing their first album, ‘We Are’ with the title track ‘Tag Me’. They are the first girl group to be introduced by Play M Entertainment in 10 years, and has drawn attention even before their debut as an ‘Apink‘s Sister Group’.
