Photos of fans -- who are reportedly managers of EXO fan pages -- taking photos with huge camera lenses right behind or next to Seventeen and other idols are being shared on Korean online communities, angering numerous fans.
Some of them are not only violating Seventeen members' personal space with their cameras, they even use the members' backseats as a stand for their lenses.
The rude behavior did not end there. A person who attended the award show took a video of EXO fans rushing into the entertainers' section and trying to take photos.
오늘자 AAA 시상식에서 무개념짓한 엑소홈마들을 좀보세요 엑소 상타니까 갑자기 연예인석 침범하면서 우르르르 내려와가지고 대포꺼내들고 ㅋㅋ 경호원들이 뛰어와서 하지말라고 바락바락해도 경호원 밀치면서까지 찍은 엑소 무개념팬분들 반성좀하세요 먹칠제대로하네 pic.twitter.com/NS5rnfAgeC— 개팔이 (@xrpbRsXbsjAxu9l) November 16, 2016
The tweet describing the situation says:
"Look at these EXO hom-ma (homepage masters) who behaved thoughtlessly today at AAA (Asia Artist Awards). When EXO was receiving their award, they suddenly rushed into the celebrity section with their cameras out. Security guards ran over and asked them to stop, but the fans yelled and pushed back the guards."
EXO fans were probably not the only ones who caused chaos. There were complaints about fan behavior in general. One person tweeted a photo with the caption:
"Look at the manners of these people at AAA. Why can't the staff at these events stop this and why are these people so rude? Do they not know the lines that shouldn't be crossed? Whee In looked uncomfortable and Moon Byul moved to a different seat."
Here are some more photos of fans who are just way too close to the celebrities who seem very uncomfortable:
What do you guys think about these type of fans? Are they just too eager to take photos of their idols? At any rate, it seems like the '2016 Asia Artists Awards' was a pretty chaotic event.
