SM Entertainment’s singers started “SM Town Live World Tour III” in Los Angeles on May 20. After seeing SHINee’s performance, people are indicating that the stage was too dangerous.
On May 21, a video almost six minutes long of SHINee’s performance
was uploaded onto Youtube. In the video, around 26 seconds, the middle
part of the flat stage starts to rise up. On top of the high stage that
is about two to three meters off the floor, the five members are dancing
powerfully. The problem is that the space of that stage is very small.
SHINee is dancing while trading places, however, it seems like that
if they take one extra step forward or to the side, they will fall off.
Even if they accidentally tripped, it seems like they will fall off the
stage. Also, the stage was moving slightly up and down during the
concert, which made it harder for the members to keep their balance.
Most of the netizens who saw the video said, “It looks very
dangerous.” One netizen wrote, “It seems like that SM is truly crazy for
making them perform on a stage made like that. Surely, they did’t make
other groups with more members like Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, and EXO,
perform up there too, or did they?? Or was it only SHINee?? I can’t
believe it! What kind of situation is this.” Another netizen said, “I
can’t understand why they made it so small like that. While watching the
video, I was so nervous the whole time..What if, while dancing, they
bump into each other by accident…I am worried that the small stage will
be used in the future at every SM concerts.”
