INFINITE fans are divided over Dongwoo's actions.

In Korea, it is common for fansite masters to hold exhibitions both to raise money and for fellow fans to see the beautiful photos that they've taken. However, it's not that common for an idol to show up to an exhibition by his fansite. Dongwoo showed up to an exhibition and took photos with cream on his cheeks and nose, suggesting there was cake involved. His hand was also caught in a photo with the fansite master drinking wine with her close friends.

Some fans are critical of his decision to not only attend the exhibition, which is problematic in itself because it's a way for fansite masters to make money off of idols and their fans, but also the decision to have wine with the fansite because it creates a sort of hierarchy among fans. However, others are defensive of Dongwoo, saying it must have been an innocent visit.

Woollim Entertainment told eToday, "It's true that he went to the exhibition. But he went just to congratulate her exhibition."

Leave him be. Honestly,Dongwoo is such an free and wonderful person who doesn't care about your idol image bs. He is just living like a person. Stop trying to clip his wings. Not many idols will interact with you so freely, especially not if they are on level of Infinite who are still one of the biggest groups in Korea. We have been with Infinite for long years, the fansite too, and yeah, they have special position but it's not surprising if you follow someone for 7 years and meet them that often (and btw. i met the fansite master too and she is very nice). But even though i am nobody, Dongwoo also greeted me and interacted with me anyway. He is not making any differences there, i promise. He is the last person in k-pop who deserves to get any shit, he is genuinely great guy. I will be pissed if Woollim bans them from interacting with fans because of someone trying to drag him into something because they are jealous he is maybe dating.

I... don't really get what happened??? This article wasn't written well. I thought these exhibitions usually were for raising money to do something in the group's name (like donate to charity or put up a congratulatory sign as an ad)

I think it a big deal for fans, bcause his dating a non celebrity it like his dating his fans so fans feel unfair . If it a celebrity i dont think fans would react like this
