However, there was something aside from the performances that caught the eye of the concertgoers, particularly the inconsiderate, disrespectful way Seventeen fans allegedly acted.
A netizen, under a post titled 'I went to the summer festival today and Seventeen fans..' brought to attention the downright rude behavior of CARATs.
The netizen wrote, "I'm honestly at a loss for words. 100 of them would roam around in droves, holding cameras and cell phones among the regular fans and fan page admins, plopping down on strangers' laps and asking them to move it. Well, many fan page admins do act this way but for the first time ever during the summer festival, they had to halt recordings to rest a bit. And during the beginning of the performance, even though there is a camera [showing the stage], they were wrestling for the seats at the very front with the security guards and the fan page admins, and later, they bolted with their cameras lmaoooooooo. Man, it was so uncomfortable [to watch]. The recording was halted twice and the camera director even threatened to publicly execute them. I heard that Seventeen fans were bad and they were really bad. And y'all keep calling me a troll and saying shit like I didn't go to the summer festival and blah blah but I did go. Jeezus, so frustrating. Why would I insult Seventeen? I'm just pointing out that there are some crazy fans."
Opinions on this post seem to be divided, and some of the most liked comments read, "I was at the event and even [other] Seventeen fans were extremely frustrated. The fan page admins wouldn't move, and eventually, everyone at the front yelled in unison for the admins to move back like three times," "I'm seriously embarrassed as someone from the same fandom," "I went to the summer festival too but I have no idea what you're talking about lololol even before Seventeen came out, the queue was a total mess. It was just that the security guards ordered everyone to be more orderly during Seventeen's stage; that's why it seems like the fans were wilder. The other fandoms weren't any better haha," "This person's a troll for sure lolololol," "My friend went to the summer festival but it's not just Seventeen; it was disorderly from the very beginning," and more.
