Oh My Girl's agency has responded to reports of sexual harassment by a concertgoer at a recent university festival.

On May 20, the girl group performed at a festival for a Daegu university, where a male concertgoer is reported to have yelled sexual remarks at Oh My Girl. The offender was caught on video, and another university student posted the clip to the school's SNS as well as online community, criticizing the foul-mouthed man.

The post put the man on blast, adding that there were elementary students and high school students present at the festival. The post further pointed out the man's sexual comments were even more inappropriate as one Oh My Girl member is only 16 years old. Unsurprisingly, the incident caused a lot of outrage among university students and other netizens.

WM Entertainment responded on May 24, "The members were in the middle of the concert at the time, so they did not personally hear any of the sexual harassment. On the agency's end, we plan to apply measures that will protect our artists."

    I think drunken bad behavior would be regarded as equally troubling as sober bad behavior as the university. Hopefully he'll learn there are actually consequences to acting like a beast.

    Worse things do happen to Asian Celebrities than what happened to OMG Group here. This video below is from a recent PRChina 'Fan Meet and Greet' between an actress and one of her 'admirers' present. At about 50 seconds, the 'event' takes place! ... :-((

    Perhaps the 'Fan' was hallucinating that he was a LINE BACKER in an NFL Tackle Football Game? ... :-((

    Apparently, it was some male person at least POSING as a FAN. If you look at the full video, that 'WACKY FAN' does like 'move up' and chat to another male there in the crowd (on the left side). Then, all of sudden, WACKY FAN does make his NFL Tackle Move. Hopefully this does NOT give SASAENG FANS in *other* Asian Nations any 'inspiration' ideas ...

    Man! She was stabbed multiple times! Another incident is where two members of AKB48 were attacked by a man wielding a hand saw!

    You'd think with the amount of stalking cases that end in the stalker trying to kill their target by now the police would take reports more seriously. I mean there was even that horror film Perfect Blue that dealt with dangerous idol stalkers that came out in the 90's, so it's not like this is a new problem at all.

    With actual POLICE, it MAY be that their viewpoint is that the K-pop Agencies need to *pay* for PRIVATE SECURITY (ex-POLICE) as they need them. DIFFICULT for POLICE to know how INTENT that some STALKER is to actually DO SOMETHING BAD.

    This is why places like LA actually have stalker divisions within the police force. In time all police agencies will need one, with social media we're all being pursued but nut jobs now.

    My guess is the girls probably heard it, but was professional enough to ignore him, and the agency did not want to admit the girls heard it, as they will have to respond to it, they just pretended that the girls didnt notice it happened and brush it off.
