They need to make the stages safer for kpop singers. This crap has happened a surprising amount of times before. To SNSD too.

These poor girls are tiny, they can seriously injure themselves if they end up falling more severely. Like, you have to consider just how thin they are and the bruises that could result from a fall. I have really banged up legs and I'm not as tiny as them because I constantly knock my knees around into things.

They were tough to keep going, had no other choice. Stage staff needs to make conditions safer onstage. Like, put something down or clean up anything slippery before a perf starts.


What, do non-Koreans not injure themselves when falling? I think this video is evidence that it's okay for them fall; They just bounce.



There's a problem in kpop specifically where the companies absolutely insist the groups or acts to perform on unsafe stages, even in the rain and such. It's just not good for anyone. Even if they "bounce", doesn't mean the girls don't get injured, they're tiny little things, I said this earlier, if anything they don't have a lot of protective cushioning to keep them from getting hurt. Those things both are concerning to me. Especially the companies not exactly caring about their groups safety.

They have no weight behind them, as you've said. They don't need cushioning. They're clearly able to get back immediately after slipping.

Ehh alot of the performers im a huge fan of do crazy shit on stage all the time like Iggy Pop, Yamantaka Eye and David Yow so this doesnt really seem all that bad to me. Its kinda humorous to see such an organized proceeding fall apart though.

Saw it when the news first broke.. and while I applaud them for continuing, their companies, the organizers, just everything.. they really need to stop making them perform in these conditions.

I've seen this before, primarily T-ARA comes to mind when they were forced to perform in very cold weather in next-to-nothing performance costumes. How do you expect your artists to do well and earn you anything if you treat them like this and threaten the ability for them to even perform down the line? It's very sad..
