A fight broke out between fans in the front row of an Enhypen concert over the weekend in Macao, K-pop news site SK POP says.
The Saturday night scuffle reportedly prevented the K-pop boy band from descending from the stage to mingle with the audience – a popular feature at Enhypen’s shows – leaving the rest of the audience disappointed.
According to SK POP, the fight broke out when one fan claimed that another fan’s poster was obstructing the view. After a physical altercation, SK POP says the two were seen bleeding and being carried away on stretchers.
The fight was reportedly intense enough to prompt Enhypen member Jungwon to attempt to mediate, unsuccessfully, from the stage.
Afterwards, social media was awash with comments from concert-goers and K-pop fans. “My god the situation is genuinely scary,” posted one. “Enhypen must be very disappointed with some of the Macau engenes” posted another, using the name for Enhypen fans. “This is so embarrassing,” posted a third.
The seven-member Enhypen performed three sold-out shows at Galaxy Arena on 26, 27 and 28 January as part of the band’s Fate world tour.
The fight happened on night two of Enhypen’s concert series, which reportedly drew a total of about 32,000 fans.
Enhypen’s was the second K-pop event this month to stir up drama. Earlier in January, Seventeen’s concerts prompted a government-led investigation into complaints over excessive noise and traffic issues. The concert also led to damage at the venue, the Olympic Sports Centre Stadium.
