Pledis has announced a trip for Japanese Carats to spend 3 days at a resort in Okinawa, Japan with a few planned events involving SEVENTEEN.
The events are said to be a fanmeeting, a group photo with the members, a Q&A session, and hi-touch. But, Carats are using the hashtag #플레디스_팬클럽_여행_취소해 to get Pledis’s attention to cancel the trip in fear of SEVENTEEN’s safety.

Carats are adamant about canceling the trip, especially after the sasaeng incident involving Woozi. They view the trip as another opportunity for sasaengs to wreak havoc.
seventeen's privacy and security should be your TOP priority. if you can't protect them from sasaengs, what more if they are in the same trip. CANCEL THE OKINAWA TRIP! 😡#플레디스_팬클럽_여행_취소해

Carats all over the world are standing in solidarity by using the hashtag because SEVENTEEN’s safety is the top priority.
JCarats and KCarats are seeking for Carats help to trend this hashtag for Pledis to cancel the fanclub trip because it could be an opportunity for sasaengs. Above all else, Seventeen. Seventeen before Carat.

Considering the cancellation of NU’EST W’s fanmeet last year, this isn’t the first time Pledis has come under fire for scheduling fan-meets at the expense of its artists.
