A recent video going viral on K-pop stan Twitter shows (G)I-DLE’s Shuhua breaking down on stage mid-performance and Yuqi escorting her backstage. The five-member girl group are currently on their first world tour titled JUST ME ()I-DLE. The video was captured during their latest concert, held in Mexico City on August 12 (US time).

Pamela Lima, a journalist, captured the exact moment when the 22-year-old Taiwanese K-pop idol, presumably after stretching her limits, sat down on the stage and motioned that she could not continue the performance.

Group mate Yuqi broke her formation and walked towards her to help her get up. She then escorted Shuhua backstage as the other members, though concerned, continued their performance.

Shuhua was feeling sick; she was resting and is now ready to continue the concert / Shuhua pidió una pausa durante la canción y descansó para regresar al final del concierto #GIDLEinMexico #GIDLE #Shuhua

The situation left Neverland, the TOMBOY group’s fandom, concerned about the idol’s health. They attributed it to the tour dates not having enough gaps between shows. They directed their attention towards CUBE Entertainment, the group’s agency, and requested them to take better care of their artists.

Fans voice concern for (G)I-DLE’s Shuhua seeing her struggle on stage at latest world tour performance

Shuhua's been exerting extra effort to improve and do well these past months and I'm afraid it's taking toll on her health, not to mention having little to no time to rest. I hope the girls know that health should be of priority ㅠㅠ #GetWellSoonShuhua

(G)I-DLE’s Shuhua, the group’s maknae, had a tough time during the Mexico City stop of their world tour, JUST ME ()I-DLE, on August 12. While the other members performed the concert without any hint of exhaustion, the maknae, towards the end of it, could not continue with the performance and sat down on stage mid-way during My Bag stage.

Shuhua seemed extremely exhausted since the idol seemed to be struggling to get up. With Yuqi’s help, she went backstage to rest. She returned to the stage towards the end of the concert after taking rest and performed i’M The Trend and TOMBOY with the rest of the members.

the way yuqi sprinted to help shuhua and then stayed with her the entire time after she came back 😭😭😭 she’s the perfect older sister i love her so much
I just want to say that Shuhua didn’t like actually collapse, she stopped and then sat down and signed that she couldn’t do it anymore, then yuqi helped her stand up and took her backstage. Shu did go back to say goodbye to nevies and then sang im the trend and tomboy
Yuqi was with Shuhua the whole time after she came back 🥺🥺🥺🥺 I'm so happy Shuhua has Yuqi😭💙
the way yuqi stayed by shuhua’s side during their final speech, they’re making me cry

Fans both praised the (G)I-DLE’s youngest member's professionalism and voiced concerns regarding her and the group’s health. From singing and dancing continuously for hours on end to keeping the energy of the audience up, concerts are extremely demanding. A proper break and rest period is what allows performers to progress in the long run.

However, since the end of July, (G)I-DLE has been performing in different cities with a maximum of three days’ gap in between. This month alone, they’ve already performed six times, counting the Mexico City concert. The exact dates are August 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, and 12.

Fans criticized (G)I-DLE’s agency, CUBE Entertainment, for not giving the members enough time to recuperate. They lashed out at the company while simultaneously using #GetWellSoonShuhua to send the idol love and support.

shuhua we are so proud of you no matter what. please please rest well & take care of yourself
cube:- didn’t get enough security for the airports- didn’t help the girls carry their luggage- didn’t book good venues- only gave them ONE day in between performancesand now shuhua collapsing?? tell me, what does cube do that actually helps them….
it hurts me so bad seeing shuhua collapsing like that. cube, pls take a good care of your artist and make sure they have a good rest, that's the least you can do. #GetWellSoonShuhua
shuhua collapsing onstage is not okay. earlier on weibo when someone asked why she was up because it was late in mexico, she said she was preparing & getting ready for the performance. this is not okay. cube needs to prioritize the girls health and make sure they’re resting.
shuhua please rest well and recover soon okay? sleep well, eat well, and drink lots of water. CUBE please take care of your artist, I am begging you!! they need to rest!! I am so worried for shuhua, please get better soon! #GetWellSoonShuhua

Meanwhile, (G)I-DLE's last stop in the United States will be in Monterrey on August 14. The group will be able to rest well after the Monterrey show since their next tour dates have a good enough gap.

The quintet will then head to Asia to perform in Jakarta (August 27), Manila (September 11), and Tokyo (September 16 and 17) before rounding it off in Singapore (October 1).
