SEOUL—In the wake of a tragedy that killed more than 150 Halloween revelers last weekend, South Koreans are reaching a consensus that the accident could have ben avoided. Officials didn’t have an adequate crowd-control plan for the partying-packed evening, and emergency calls warning of the dangerous overcrowding went unheeded. But the overcrowding was far from an aberration. As Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted throughout much of the world, partygoers and spectators have returned to large events en masse, fueled by the euphoria that has come at the end of a pandemic that kept people cooped up and apart from one another.
