Two female students were arrested on Sunday (30 April) for misusing their boarding passes to meet Korean hip-hop artist Simon Dominic at Changi Airport’s transit area.
The two, aged 16 and 19, had bought air tickets to get access to the transit area, but had no intention of departing Singapore, the Singapore Police Force said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (3 May). Investigations are ongoing.
So far this year, 36 people have been arrested for misusing their boarding passes, the police said in the post.
Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore understands that the girls were waiting for Simon Dominic, a popular rapper in South Korea and the co-CEO of Korean hip-hop label AOMG (Above Ordinary Music Group).
Simon Dominic was in Singapore to perform alongside fellow Korean hip-hop artistes Jay Park, Loco and Gray at the AOMG ‘Follow The Movement’ concert on Monday (1 May). He was last spotted at Universal Studios Singapore with Gray on Tuesday (2 May).
