Man storms onstage during ballad singer Huh Gak’s performance Thursday
An unknown man stormed onstage during ballad singer Huh Gak’s performance at Pohang University in North Gyeongsang Thursday night.
Videos of the incident taken by audience members have been posted to YouTube.
Huh was singing his 2011 song “Please Don’t Forget Me” when the man went onstage, snatched the microphone away from Huh and raised his hand, seemingly threatening to hit the singer.
Crew members immediately jumped on stage and escorted the man off stage while he screamed that he “could not sleep.”
Huh’s agency Big Planet Made told local press that Huh is “fine except for being a bit shocked” and that “after the incident, Huh proceeded to perform the rest of the show.”
Online users criticized security and crew members for not taking precautions against intruders or the safety of the performer via comments on YouTube.
Huh debuted in 2010 after winning Mnet’s singing competition show “Superstar K2” and is known for songs like “Hello” (2011), “The Person Who Once Loved Me” (2012), and “Empty Words” (2018).
