Kyary Pamyu Pamyu cancelled S. Korea concert of WORLD TOUR 2013 due to rising sun flag

Enews24 Korea has reported that Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s S. Korea leg of her 100% KPP World Tour 2013 scheduled for March 10 had been cancelled. 


According to the same media, Kyary was scheduled to perform a concert at Seoul UNIQLO ax this month.  But it was abruptly cancelled two weeks ago for reasons not disclosed. Because the cancellation took place before tickets go on sale, there was no refund issued.


According to people familiar with the matter, the cancellation was the result of the uproar caused by the Rising Sun flag Kyary posted on Twitter on December 31, 2012.  It was a picture of her as the sunrise image with the message “Happy New Year on New Year’s Day this year. It came across as “reminiscent of the Rising Sun flag that Korean netizens  were hotly debating about. 
After some initial backlash, the photos were removed from her account. However, by that point the damage was already done and words had quickly spread through Korean forums. This comes months after she gained positive feedback from Korean fans regarding the incident with K-pop group T-ARAKyary Pamyu Pamyu posted several tweets that appeared to admonish the group for bullying fellow member Hwa Young and eventually causing her to leave.


Last month, "100% KPP WORLD TOUR 2013" first concert opened in Belgium. Followed by performances in France and the United Kingdom.  Kyary Pamyu Pamyu planned to travel to Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the United States next.
