A netizen recently brought to attention the chaos that had ensued at the Incheon International Airport this past July 15, the day EXO members departed Korea for the SMTown Concert in Japan.
The netizen, under a post titled 'EXO-Ls, who even got articles written about their class,' shared screen captures of article titles which allegedly read, 'EXO-Ls' disorderly conduct paralyzes Incheon Int'l Airport,' 'The 'worst fandom' EXO-Ls rule the airport with chaos,' and, 'Aren't human lives more important than EXO?' The OP further uploaded a handful of photos showing EXO-Ls running rampant on busy, trafficked bus lanes, and crowding around the entrance to a terminal.
The OP wrote, "[EXO-Ls] ran dangerously around on the lanes trafficked by airport buses, taking over the roads, causing general chaos and inconveniencing everyone at the airport, which is why the article titles are like this. No wonder the reporters were dumbfounded at the ridiculous way they behaved. The average idol fandom respects their own image and the artists to not act this way, but these guys don't seem to care whether they harm their oppars or other people."
Netizens on this post commented, "What's even funnier is that they reserved places (reservation spots) at the aiport~~~~~^^;....(picture shared at bottom)," "They should at least maintain public order. And not regret only after getting into an accident," "Damn, I'm scared shitless just thinking about bitches like that chasing me around.." "Poor EXO..they must be so embarrassed seeing articles like that. Please keep to the order and peace. For yourselves, for others, and for your artist. That's not something to be proud about," "Are they still going around like that? Jfc tsk tsk," and more.
