A member of K-pop boy band Monsta X’s security staff died in the US during the group's concert tour.
Agency Starship Entertainment made the announcement on Monsta X’s fan cafe on June 13.
Monsta X held their “No Limit US Tour” from May 21 to June 11 in New York City, Fairfax, Detroit, Chicago, Sunrise in Florida, Atlanta, Fort Worth, Phoenix and Los Angeles.
"An employee of a security company who was working with us has passed away during the tour in the United States,” the agency said, according to SBS News.
It added, “Our agency can't help but feel miserable about the sudden heartbreaking news of someone who has been working hard.”
The agency said it made every effort to handle the situation locally with the company to which the employee belonged and the funeral process will be done with courtesy so there will be negligence.
"We sincerely ask you to refrain from producing speculative and groundless reports, including the personal information about the deceased, for the remaining bereaved families," it said.
