[UPDATE - Video] 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.”
If you haven’t sampled their album yet, be sure to check it out here.

[the5santa] アルバムの発売を記念して、サプライズで新曲を披露する予定でしたが、あまりにも多くの方達が集まってくれたようで、やはり安全を考えると中止しかないとスタッフから聞いた時は…とても残念な気持ちになりました。

Translation : We wanted to give a surprise to everyone by showcasing SHINee’s new songs to celebrate their first Japanese album. Unfortunately, we have to cancel the event for safety reasons, because there were too many people. We are sorry..
