SHINee’s Japanese fan event gets shut down by the police

SHINee‘s popularity in Japan has caused local police to shut down an event 30 minutes before its scheduled launch.

Japan’s Sankei Sports reported that SHINee had planned to carry out a secret event commemorating the release of their new album ‘The First’ on December 7th in Tokyo’s Shibuya area.

An advertisement stating, “Find the 5 Santa Claus whose name starts with an ‘S’”, was posted in front of JR Shibuya Station, which drew approximately 1,000 fans.

The local police came onto the scene and stated that the event had to be shut down since there was no prior notice given, and they were concerned about the risk of accidents due to the sudden influx of people.

As a result, SHINee had no choice but to end the event, and relocate to a parking lot in the vicinity. Member Key remarked, “It’s a shame that we couldn’t meet everyone,” while Jonghyun stated, “We want to repay [the fans] during the fan event on the 24th.”
