Before the long-awaited 2PM met disaster with Jun. K falling from a moving vehicle Sunday, the day seemed perfect and Ok Taec-yeon was happy.

Ok aired a V live broadcast in the time between the meet and greet event and the actual concert to take viewers around the arena.

“The day is so good, I’m stepping outside for some sun,” Ok said as he took the camera outside the Olympic Park’s Handball Stadium.

“What a perfect day. ... It’s nice to throw a concert on a day like this,” said Ok, breathing in the fresh air.

As fans started to take note of the star’s location through the V app and swarmed in, Ok went back inside the restricted area and this time took the camera to the backstage area for a sneak peek.

Ok showed the viewers the “Quick Booth,” where 2PM changes clothes between performances.

He finished the live broadcast in anticipation of meeting fans on stage, but little did he know the concert would be suspended following Jun. K’s accident.

Jun. K, while singing on a moving vehicle during the show, fell and fractured his right elbow and right ring finger. The show was canceled as the star was rushed to a hospital.

JYP Entertainment announced it would refund tickets for the canceled show.

It is yet unknown if the band will still be able to pull off the “6Nights” concert that was scheduled to go until March 5.

These concerts are 2PM’s first show in a year and nine months, and the last with all six members for the next two years, as Taec-yeon and Jun. K are set to enlist for their mandatory military duty this year.
