Offline fan meetings are being shifted online due to a surge in the number of Covid-19 cases. 
 
Pledis Entertainment, Seventeen’s agency, announced on the boy band's fan community platform Weverse that its offline fan meet, “Seventeen in Carat Land,” has been moved online. The offline event was originally scheduled for Aug. 6 to Aug. 8 in Jamsil Arena, southern Seoul.
 
“The offline event is canceled in compliance with the government’s social distancing rules,” said the agency. “The decision was made to create a safer environment for the event, and for the safety of the fans.”
