Winter (aespa) and Yeonjun (TXT) was almost injured at the 2021 KBS Gayo Daechukje
Fans are raging at the dangerous moment that happened during the 2021 KBS Gayo Daechukje.
The 2021 KBS Gayo Daechukje held on December 17th featured many KPOP groups, such as Stray Kids, ITZY, aespa, Enhypen, TXT, Brave Girls, StayC, Red Velvet, etc.
Topics related to the KBS Gayo Daechukje this year have attracted keen attention from KPOP fans. In particular, many fans have expressed their frustration about a dangerous situation that might have injured their idols.
All groups showed up on stage for the performance of the ending song “All For You”. While many idols were standing on movable stair props, the staff suddenly moved the stairs. This situation happened at the end of the show when lights were turned off, causing all artists to be terrified as they were not informed of the moving stairs beforehand.
According to several fancam footages, this incident made Stray Kids members trip to the front. Meanwhile, aespa members were spotted screaming loudly along with their panicky expressions. Winter almost fell off but was able to regain her balance thanks to Giselle. The loud noise from this incident also startled MCs Cha Eun-woo (ASTRO) and Rowoon (SF9), causing such chaos in the middle of a live broadcast.
Many fans criticized the event staff because of their unprofessionalism. Known as a prestigious annual event, its organizers still failed to ensure the safety of idols. Many idols were wearing high heels at that time and they might have lost their balance and fell off at any time. This incident also reminded KPOP fans of when Wendy (Red Velvet) was seriously injured at SBS Gayo Daejun in 2019.
