Following the event, many fans took to Twitter to share that YG Entertainment’s former CEO Yang Hyun Suk was also present at the concert. A picture of him sitting in the front row and looking at the stage while smiling also spread online.

It is a must for all concert audience members to wear masks and prevent actions, such as standing up and singing in unison, which will cause the saliva to spray out. Audiences who do not comply with the rules might be forced to leave the venue.

On the same day of TREASURE’s concert, YG staff reminded the fans that they could be sent off the hall if they violated any rules.

As a result, many are reacting negatively to Yang Hyun Suk’s actions, such as “Why didn’t you wear a mask?” “He should be reported,” “They said they would force the audiences to leave the hall if they don’t have masks, but why did they leave Yang Hyun Suk alone?” and more.

Meanwhile, Yang Hyun Suk stepped down from his CEO position after being involved in the “Burning Sun” scandal back in 2019. He was cleared of the charges on the allegations of arranging sexual entertainment due to “insufficient evidence,” but he is required to pay a fine on overseas gambling.
