DEAN Detained At US Immigration Ahead of LA Show Without Explanation, Wanted To Deport Him To Korea

By  | 

It could have been a roller coaster ride for DEAN.

DEAN was scheduled to perform at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles on Friday, December 9 (PST). However, an unexpected incident has put him through an ordeal. He was denied entry at the immigration office where he had a layover before heading to Los Angeles.

Despite what had happened, DEAN was released after a day, and managed to have sufficient time to fly to Los Angeles without disrupting the show.

DEAN’s manager has now came forward to release a statement on this incident:

Dean wants to thank everyone who came to the show in LA yesterday for all the support!

Dean was supposed to arrive in LA Thursday morning with plenty of time to get some rest and rehearse for the show. For some reason, the immigration personnel in the U.S. city where Dean had a layover on the way to LA detained Dean and refused his entry into the US. Even though Dean has the proper Visa, they put him through intense questioning, took his cell phone, took all his luggages, placed him in a holding facility, and were going to deport him to Korea.

The immigration officials would not give any explanation why Dean was being held and would not let anyone talk to him or see him. His management and label worked frantically to try to understand what was happening and how to get Dean released. Dean and his team kept fighting because Dean wanted to get to LA to perform for his fans.

Finally on early Friday morning of the day of the show, Dean was released and had just enough time to fly to LA. The doors were opened late because Dean was still rushing to get to the venue. He got to the venue and didn’t even have time to do a proper sound check.
Dean performed not having slept in almost 2 days. Even with everything Dean had been put through, he insisted on not canceling the show. He still performed almost all the songs he has released to date for his fans.

Dean would like to thank everyone who helped resolve the misunderstanding. Dean especially wants to thank all his fans for the love and support they showed him. He always appreciates his fans support but it especially meant a lot after what he was put through the two days leading up to the show.
