IOI is embroiled in a new controversy - but this time, for nothing that the girls themselves did. Rather their manager has grabbed the spotlight for a recent fan cam that has angered netizens for his rude behavior.

IOI's official fan cafe posted a video entitled "A video of the manager yelling at them to quickly get in after 'The Show' recording" on May 10.  Just as the title states, in the video, you can see member Yoo Yeon Jung folding her umbrella and getting into the van, smiling affectionately toward her fans.  While she's sweetly greeting the fans, you can hear the voice of a man, presumably the manager, yelling at her, "I told you to quickly get in!" showing irritation.

At this, fans wrote, "Please do not be like this," "Why is he yelling at the members?" "He's too much.  What's he doing?" and more.  Insight attempted to reach out to the girls' agency, YMC Entertainment, but was unable to get through.

What do you make of it?  It wouldn't be the first time managers had to be strict bordering on mean!

dont really see how this is controversial... if hes been telling them to hurry, and they kept stopping and waving and speaking to fans despite their schedule, i would get annoyed too with them. not saying shouting is good, but at some points its necessary.

Isn't this the manager's job? I mean, he doesn't have to be a dick all the time, but he's not there to coddle the girls either. I'm glad ppl are finally supporting Yoo Yeon Jung, but this isn't a controversy.

Well, because if the members don't move fast & get on the next scheduled venue, the fans & media over there would complain "why is IOI late & so unprofessional?"... as long as the manager doesn't abuse the girls, I don't see any other better way of rushing for their busy schedules.

BoBo101 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Bruh, I get that's it's his job but where does it say he had to poke her with the sharp end of the umbrella??? This is not the same reaction that would've occurred if it were Somi or Sejeong who was yelled at!

BoBo101 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

And before anybody says he didn't poke her in the video , there were multiple accounts if him pushing the members along with his umbrella but mostly Yeonjung bc she was mostly in the back

galaxyifan BoBo101 Wednesday, May 11, 2016

there's no proof of your umbrella abuse thing, besides why are you reacting this way? It's an umbrella, not some dangerous weapon, it's made of plastic, and the end is round, not sharp. If you're late, and you have girls to take care of, and these girls walk very slowly and don't want to hurry up, wouldn't you get pissed and push them a bit in front of you? I'm not talking about shoving, I'm talking about pushing someone to hurry up. You need to stop overreacting, the guy's doing his job, leave him some space, he isn't a criminal because he yelled at someone.

BoBo101 galaxyifan Thursday, May 12, 2016

Wow, look at yourself. You honestly think people are ad bc he pushed some girl? Or yelled at her? It's a big deal bc of the person he did that too. The #11 girl, the only one with exceptional talents and the one that tossed and pushed around everywhere.

BoBo101 galaxyifan Thursday, May 12, 2016

And look at the video, that girl had a foot inside the car when he started yelling at her. That is not part of his "job", his job is to manage the girls.

galaxyifan BoBo101 Thursday, May 12, 2016

he slightly pushed (according to you) ONE girl stop dramatizing, because there's no proof of that anyway. He isn't tossing your 11 precious girls, he yelled at one girl! It happens! he's human too, mistakes happen! What's so wrong with this? He isn't a monster. People are indeed overreacting, just because she's an idol. I know, I'm a fan of idol groups myself, and as soon as someone touches your bias you start a war (when I say you i mean people in general, not especially you, don't take it the wrong way) and this is what's happening. What happened sucks okay, but not more than that, won't you try to understand the guy either? Isn't he a being as well? Do only your precious girls count?

BoBo101 galaxyifan Thursday, May 12, 2016

I get that the guy could be stressed, it happens. But more people are showing sympathy for the guy than the girl and in what world does that make sense? In the end, it was his loss, both engery- and job- wise. The girl was nearly in the car, he kinda overreacted.

BoBo101 galaxyifan Thursday, May 12, 2016

But many people have been using the claim that "he's yelling them like family, bc he cares, etc" but the thing is. he's tired, yes, but how do you think the girls' are? Their schedule is packed full, that's why they were walking slow. Family is supposed to be sympathetic, and encourage them, not bring them down.

jiggawatt BoBo101 Friday, May 13, 2016

Considering their new controversy of being late, maybe 'poking' the girls to stop dallying and get a move on is a good thing.

galaxyifan BoBo101 Friday, May 13, 2016

okay so if your mom yells at you she's being the worst mother and she's bringing you down? Is that what you're saying? What world do you live in

BoBo101 galaxyifan Friday, May 13, 2016

Well, she's certainly not the best one, especially if she knows I've been working all day and I'm tired. But then again, I may be too immature to realize that my opinion isn't true because it doesn't match up with yours. My world must be gooey-chocolaty compared to your poor rock-solid one. Like Annie said "its a tough-nut world"

Rebel_Patriot Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Another scrawny piece of shit eunuch tough guy with little Korean girls. No excuse for such abusive behavior towards females. This ass-faced subhuman pile of worm shit needs to be fired, or better yet, hopefully a lighting bolt will fly into his asshole (or mouth... can't tell the difference) and put him out of our misery. What a pathetic nutless dishonorable scum.

AnonnymousDevil Tuesday, May 10, 2016

can i hit the manager on the face?

galaxyifan AnonnymousDevil Wednesday, May 11, 2016

what for? doing his job? you know he yelled at her, things like that happen, maybe they were late, and she was taking all her time, you never know. Judging someone based on a video is very immature, and asking if you can punch him is so childish I can't believe you said that

Katrina_Chan Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Do any IOI fans know why IOI was nominated for The Show even though Seventeen got top 3 on Tudou for both streaming, gifts, and MangoTV?? IOI was fourth on Tudou, and we'd like to know why :) No hate on IOI though! They're all a very talented group, but we are curious as to the decision because the rules state that top 3 are nominated.

dimasindraputra Katrina_Chan Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Yea I noticed that too. Probably it because Seventeen overlap IOI rank just a few minute/hour before the voting closed (CMIIW). It is a pre-recorded show, so maybe the pd and the team already started some recording from the morning, post the teaser, make bumper and etc etc and there's no time to re-adjust it. Hope this explanation help! :)

periwinkledomo Tuesday, May 10, 2016

the manager is in charge of 11 girls. it's his job to make sure theyre on time and his job to make sure theyre safe. if any one of them were to be hurt by the fans or if they are 30 min late for an event, people would blame the managers for scheduling things badly and not protecting the members well enough. so the manager yells sometimes so he gets his job done. its not rly his job to make sure the members are all coddled and treated like children.

Rebel_Patriot periwinkledomo Tuesday, May 10, 2016

He is a scrawny ass-faced nutless eunuch scum who needs a good beatdown to remind him that bullying little girls is always disgraceful behavior regardless of any lame excuses.

BoBo101 periwinkledomo Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Does that mean he had to poke her with the sharp point of his umbrella too?

galaxyifan Rebel_Patriot Wednesday, May 11, 2016

ok everyone this person's a troll so don't overreact to his or her comment

bobfish Tuesday, May 10, 2016

YMC have never managed idols before, I imagine there are going to come up short in a number of areas due to a lack of experience with it.

galaxyifan Tuesday, May 10, 2016

omg that guy didn't hit her or anything he yelled at her, that happens from time to time he isn't an a**hole just because of that! maybe he was stressed, maybe they were already late, you never know wtf is wrong with netizens

BoBo101 galaxyifan Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Yeah, he kinda did. He poked her with the sharp end of the umbrella if you look closely.

galaxyifan BoBo101 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

she was the one holding the umbrella... and poking isn't beating someone up? i poke my friends when they're in front of me and they walk slowly you know they aren't dead, it's an umbrella not a knife

BoBo101 galaxyifan Tuesday, May 10, 2016

No, I found out that he was pushing them, well mostly yeonjung, along with his umbrella before this was recorded.

BoBo101 galaxyifan Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Let's use your viewpoint in another matter: Well, hackers of idols aren't really criminals, they're only superfans, it's not like they posted nudes or anything. And I post pictures of my friends all the time and go through their stuff too.

BoBo101 galaxyifan Tuesday, May 10, 2016

I'm not saying that he could've had other stuff but she was already in the car and if he acts like this in front of camera imagine behind? He also could have scolded her in the car, it's embarrassing for her. It's more the intention behind the actions than it is the action.

galaxyifan BoBo101 Wednesday, May 11, 2016

my point of view? wtf? hackers of idols aren't criminals? what are you even talking about?! the guy barely poked her (according to you) managers have to act like second parents, you know parents yell sometimes at their kids right? you know poking isn't beating up right? you know that when you're late, stressed, or anything you don't have the time to think about cameras and you yell without thinking right? do you even think about the manager? do you even know this guy? or this whole situation before jumping to conclusion? She's an idol, she'll face much more embarassing than someone barely yelling at her. Besides she was taking all her time so fold her umbrella, what if they were very late? You don't know anything about this situation. And please, about your hacker thing, could you at least say something that makes sense? There's absolutely no link between what I said and that comment, could you explain to me what does my so called point of view have to do? Superfans that post nudes oh my Lord. Just because I said that an umbrella wasn't a knife and people could get stressed and yell sometimes, seriously?

BoBo101 galaxyifan Thursday, May 12, 2016

If he acts like this in front of camera imagine behind? It's more the intention behind the actions than it is the action. And especially bc this person isn't popular, everybody is defending the manager, yeah they have to get there in time, I know IOI has a busy schedule but it's not as if he's doing what the girls are. Ofc the girls are tired from their schedules and Yeonjung doesn't deserve to be treated like pushover.

BoBo101 galaxyifan Thursday, May 12, 2016

She already gets enough antipathy from netizens, she doesn't need it from the people who are supposed to take care of her. It's fine, he yelled it happens, but what's really disheartening is that more than half the comments are about how it was her fault or how the manager doesn't deserve this hate and I'm like wth?
