“I Hope HYBE Sends SM An Invoice” — Netizens React To ENHYPEN’s Bodyguards Keeping NCT Fans In Line At The Airport

“Congratulations on protecting ENHYPEN and NCT.”

There is a lot of controversy, and understandably so, over the “culture” surrounding K-Pop fans trying to interact with and get pictures of their favorite idols at the airport. These kinds of situations can easily become chaotic and even dangerous when fans get too close and don’t respect an idol’s personal space, especially when there isn’t proper security involved.

There have been countless instances of idols being mobbed at the airport, some to more frightening and dangerous degrees than others. Yet this has become upsettingly normalized for a lot of the so-called “fans” that participate in this behavior, which has led to some labels needing to increase their security in order to keep their idols safe.

Recently, the bodyguards in charge of protecting ENHYPEN‘s members went to intense measures to make sure the idols stayed safe, as can be seen in this clip.

Fans are praising their actions and determination to do their job well, while others are demanding that something be done in order to prevent this sort of thing from happening in the first place.

But it turns out it wasn’t just ENHYPEN fans that the bodyguards were holding back. According to the account of an NCT fan at the airport during this chaos, members JaeminJeno, and Jisung were taking the same flight as ENHYPEN, resulting in NCTzens being there too. And therefore, the bodyguards were protecting NCT as well, even though that wasn’t what they were hired for!

Caption: “Ha, this is ridiculous. NCT members and ENHYPEN were on the same flight, and NCTzens were quietly filming NCT, but HYBE’s bodyguards were making an issue. We told them we were NCT fans and not ENHYPEN fans, and they told us not to film NCT either.”

In a forum post on the topic, most people are on the side of the bodyguards and supporting their actions in protecting both ENHYPEN and NCT. Some are even saying that HYBE Labels should send a bill to SM Entertainment for the protection!

Though it seems like no one was hurt in this instance, it would be nice to see something done to prevent fans mobbing idols at airports in the first place.
