On the evening of May 16, the historic ‘Gucci Cruise 2024 Show‘ was held at Geunjeongjeon, the central structure of Gyeongbokgung Palace, with many celebrities and fashion industry affiliates in attendance.
Immediately after the parade, fashion show guests and attendees moved into a ‘D’ Building
nearby for an after party.
Unfortunately, the after party quickly sparked noise complaints from many residents of surrounding buildings in the area. The first police intervention was at 9:29 p.m., but even after a warning, the noise continued until about 11 p.m., riot police accompanied by 9 patrol vehicles arrived in front of the building. The after party eventually received a fine notice for violating the noise control law.
It was pointed out that the after party organizers probably made the wrong decision in selecting Building “D” near Gyeongbokgung Palace for the event, as the building is known for its unique design and large windows. Some netizens have complained online that they can “hear the music in my room as if they had installed the speakers outside in the street”and that the “the laser lights were blinding”.
