[+ 4819, – 212] VIXX and Kim Dong Hyun helped him out… and the manager took him to the hospital….the emergency staff did nothing. Actually was there even emergency staff on site?
[+ 4213, – 198] There were no doctors on site. According to fans they just sprayed cooling spray on him and put a camera into the face of the shaking boy and told him to wave. Later they’ll probably sub it saying doctors tended to him….
[+ 3609, – 177] It’s their job to practice and perform every day. How does it make sense that there are no doctors in place when the people on the show are all performers…
