According to Allkpop, on the night of May 16, locals residing near Gyeongbokgung Palace submitted 52 noise complaints. An abundant amount of police vehicles, including riot police, were deployed shortly afterwards.
On the same evening, celebrities and fashion industry figures flocked to the Gyeongbokgung Palace to witness the famous ‘Gucci Cruise 2024 Fashion Show.’ Taking place at Geunjeongjeon, it was a spectacular event that will be remembered for years to come. Some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, including Dakota Johnson, Jodie Turner-Smith and Elizabeth Olsen were seen attending it.
After the fashion show, everyone went to an after-party held in a close-by building called ‘D.’ Sadly, the loud music and chatter from the after-party created a disturbance for the nearby residents. Consequently, a few complaints were lodged against it.
