MANILA, Philippines — South Korean actor Park Bo-gum’s upcoming fan meeting on Saturday in Manila was postponed because of the recent earthquake.

Park announced the news on Wednesday via his Twitter account.


“#PrayForPhilippines I’d like to inform you that the event in the Philippines scheduled for April 27, Saturday, has now been postponed due to the recent earthquake,” Park wrote.

The actor also apologized to fans who have been anticipating his visit to the country.


“I apologize to all who have been waiting for the event and ask for your kind understanding,” he said.


“My heartfelt condolences and consolation to the victims of the earthquake and their families. I’ll pray for the Philippines, and may God’s protection and care always be with all people in the Philippines,” he added.

This was after a 6.1-magnitude quake struck parts of Luzon on Monday and a 6.2-magnitude quake struck Eastern Samar on Tuesday.

The fan meeting has been moved to June 22, 2019, according to a Facebook post by Park’s agency Blossom Entertainment.
