South Korean singer-songwriter-producer PSY’s agency P Nation released an official statement on Sunday expressing grief and condolences after a construction worker died while dismantling the set of the singer’s Summer Swag 2022 concert.
“We express our sincerest condolences to the worker who passed away after a sudden accident,” P Nation said in its statement, according to media portal Korea JoongAng Daily. “We also send our deepest condolences to the surviving family.”
“We will do our best to establish measures to prevent another accident like this from happening, with a sense of responsibility,” the agency said.
A Mongolian man in his 20s was working through an outsourcing agency. As per the report, “around 3:53 p.m. on Sunday, he fell 15 meters (49 feet) while taking down a lighting tower at the Gangneung Stadium in Gangneung, Gangwon, where PSY’s Summer Swag 2022 had taken place the day before.” He was rushed to the local hospital but died.
Meanwhile, PSY, who recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of his 2014 smash hit single ‘Gangnam Style,’ returned to the music scene after five years with his ninth full studio album Psy 9th, and the title track ‘That That’ was co-arranged, co-written, and produced by BTS’ resident all-rounder, SUGA.
