SM Apologizes For Manager’s Violence Towards Fan
On the 14th, it was reported that C.N Blue’s manager had been showing violence towards the fan when the fan tugged on the sweater of member in C.N Blue. However, it looks like SHINee might be facing the same manager problems.
In the video clip released, it was the manager of the idol group SHINee, slapping
the back head of a young female fan. Along with that video clip, the
netizens are roaring across various websites at this action.
SM Entertainment revealed through a phone interview on February 17, “The video was taken last August when SHINee was in the
process of moving between their schedules. We would like to express our
deepest apology to fans who have met with similar nasty situations.”
The SM rep also added, “We will make sure that such will not happen
again, and that all managers and staff of our company will do their
best. Again we would like to apologize for this.”
The video was posted on various portal sites on February 17.
The girl who had been hit in during the incident replied, “I posted
on the fan homepage that I was hit by the manager, but the management (SM Entertainment)
dismissed it as a rumor and deleted my post.” So along with the post
from the girl who was hit during that incident, the netizens angers are
growing. The netizens responded to the video by saying “Managers must
really hit a lot of times”, “In the back TaeMin is so surprised, and from what they wearing, it must be from their ‘Juliette’ days”. Some even questioned members of SHINee by stating, “I don’t understand SHINee members for just passing by when a fan is being hit.”
Netizens who saw the video commented, “Even though the fans who came
up close are a problem, the managers’ attitude are also a problem”, “I
am shocked that they did such a thing to a young fan” etc.
