Hello, this is Starship Entertainment.
First we would like to apologise to all fans as MONSTA X’s member Wonho will not be able to perform at the 2019 MONSTA X World Tour “We Are Here” concert in Kuala Lumpur.
On June 21st, MONSTA X flew to Malaysia for their world tour and when they arrived at the airport there, Wonho was unable to enter the country because he could not find his passport. Wonho then returned to Korea and was issued an emergency passport, and tried to catch the fastest flight back to Malaysia so he could perform at the concert, but we have come to the conclusion that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the concert and the event that will follow the concert. Our agency and Wonho have agreed that he will not be able to participate in the concert. Wonho will still return to Malaysia for all the fans who have waited for him and he is currently waiting to fly out.
We sincerely apologise for causing concern to all fans who have been anticipating and waiting for this event. We will make sure something like this does not happen again in future concerts of the world tour.
