Mamamoo won’t be performing at this year’s K-Asian Festival due to issues with “organizers”.
This announcement appeared on their official Twitter account on August 12.
One Moomoo already translated the Tweet.
No other artists scheduled to perform at the festival have made any similar announcements as of yet.
Mamamoo are not the first to back out of the event, though. Blackpink were also supposed to attend the festival, but as of July 30 their names have stopped appearing on the official lineup. Some have speculated that their cancellation may be due to the fact that MTV Video Music Awards are happening a day after the festival – August 26, and Blackpink are nominated in the “Best K-pop” category.
Moomoos on Twitter don’t seem too pressed about this turn of events. They are urging the girls to take this opportunity to get some rest.
