Taiwanese celebrity couple Zax Wang and Ji Qin had a close shave with the blast that took place outside Bangkok’s Erawan shrine last night. According to local media in Thailand, the death toll of the explosion has reached 27, while many locals and tourists suffered injuries.
The pair, who was in the city for a holiday, had visited the famous temple the day before and initially planned to pop by again yesterday. Their plans got delayed after shopping in a mall nearby, leading to their decision to head back to the hotel instead.
Shocked by the news, Zax and Ji Qin remained in the hotel premise after they returned.
In a Facebook post, the former 5566 member wrote: “There was an explosion in Bangkok. We were there yesterday and we almost wanted to go there just now. We changed our itinerary at the last minute and detoured to the hotel. We hope that the gods will bless everyone and that the number of casualties will stop rising. It was really a close shave with death. So scary! Pray and treasure [our] fortune.”
