Sasaeng fans, sasaeng fans, sasaeng, fans.. are they really fans? Several Soompiers have shared their thoughts that no, they’re not and some have wondered how they’ll think about their actions 5-10 years from now. It’s sad that this part of the fandom exists in the K-Pop world. It’s unfortunate that it’s so easy to follow celebrities because Seoul, and South Korea in general, is quite small making it convenient for such unwelcomed stalking.
Super Junior’s Lee Teuk recently posted on his twitter wishing that his sasaeng fans would leave him alone at least for today as it’s his last day before entering the military. There have been previous incidents where celebrities expressed their disdain because of the length sasaeng fans would go to show their “love.”
Here are a few of the many incidents revealed by idol groups in the past. Please feel free to add more to the list. Don’t know how, but hopefully the celebrities can live in peace.
