No BTS? Give me New Jeans... Jamboree K-Pop Concert, cast members for 'Crazy Meal'
No BTS? Give me New Jeans... Jamboree K-Pop Concert, cast members for 'Crazy Meal'
The appearance of the girl group New Jeans at the Jamboree K-Pop Concert has been confirmed.

According to the performance industry on the 7th, New Jeans, who recently returned to Korea after a performance in the United States, are expected to perform on the stage of '2023 World Scout Jamboree K-Pop Super Live' as much as birds.

The Jamboree K-pop concert was originally scheduled to be held on the 6th at the Saemangeum outdoor stage in Buan, Jeonbuk. However, as heat-related patients continued to appear due to the continuing heatwave, the venue and schedule were changed and the venue was confirmed as Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th.

As the schedule was suddenly changed, news of some singers and MCs such as Nmix, Verivery, and actor Jang Dong-yoon were reported to have failed to appear.

Because of that, the success of the Jamboree event, for which a budget of 110 billion won was invested, was in the fog. What the government put forward was the appearance of world star BTS. However, it was not clear whether or not they would appear.

As of today (7th), there are 4 days left until the Jamboree Concert is held. During this period, it is necessary not only to coordinate the schedules of BTS members, but also to plan performances and prepare performance equipment. It is difficult in itself to match the schedules of those who are currently solo or serving in the military. In particular, in the case of V, he is in the midst of preparing for the release of a solo album.

Also, even if the appearance is confirmed, the time to prepare for the stage is too short. It usually takes 3-4 days to install stage equipment. It is unknown whether the stage installation will be completed due to the typhoon. Even if you go on stage, you can't think of choreography or rehearsals. Top singers like BTS are sensitive to stage equipment and planning. It is because of the recognition that they have to show the best stage worthy of their name.

It is pointed out that for such a realistic reason, the performer has been rapidly turned from BTS to New Jeans. A situation where BTS' appearance could not be guaranteed. Analysts say that Hive released its label group New Jeans in response to government pressure. In fact, there is no place where you can recruit New Jeans a few days before the appearance. In the name of a national event, it is inevitable to point out that private companies were forced to do things they did not want to do.

Currently, the 'Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree' event is being criticized for hasty administration. This is because there was a stir due to poor management, poor environment, and suspicion of sexual crimes. The results of the government and organizers' frustrating response and operation are eventually going back to K-pop artists and entertainment companies. It is worrisome that the water riding incident under the name of a gift for the Jamboree participants implies national violence.
