The '2016 Ulsan Summer Festival' took place recently, and many K-Pop fans flocked to the event to see their favorite acts perform in the flesh.

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.

In the carat fandom its already known that some seventeen fansite owners are very manipulative for money and are disrespectful, some even spreading rumours about SEVENTEEN. These 'fans' seriously ruin Seventeen and our fandoms image :( why dont they think about the consequences before doing these things. I hate to keep seeing negative articles about Svt and their fans because people will end up hating us.

And its really annoying how Akp posts this negative article about Seventeen based on one or two netizens accounts of the situation. Was it really such a big deal and controversy with many people complaining that it had to become an article? This just shows you want to ruin our image and spread hate because Seventeen are rising in popularity

Lol allkpop stop posting negative comments about seventeen and carat's,that's all I see you guys do,the fact that you write negative comments about boy groups all the time,first exo,bts and now seventeen and Nct...But yet I'm waiting for you to write negative things about girl groups,how come netizens never dig up the past on girl groups or say anything bad about girl groups,lol I know they are not innocent like you guys portray them to in other words stop posting negative post about guy groups.

Ikr i never heard about this issue before because literally I'm always updated on recent seventeen news and i heard nothing about immature fans. Yet AKP posts an article based on a few netizens accounts of the situation, when it may have not even been such a big deal. The more negative articles they keep posting about us the more hate we're going to recieve :|

Nothing about immature fans at the Ulsan Festival *

I agree the fact that they believed what one anti fan said about carat's... Compared to what the actual truth was that all fan's were unruly and to point out only carat's is wrong,I hate how they always target guy groups,especially digging back as far as elementary school

Allkpop get your facts straight and don't listen to one delusional anti fan of seventeen,just trying to make carat's look bad.

Lol someone got executed?

"..even before Seventeen came out, the queue was a total mess."HA, so, is it only Carats?AKP is dissappointing as always. How could you titled this article like that bc of one netizen's argument? Seventeen is really getting more popular right now. :))

Lol those immature fans, not only carats but all of them. I should call their parents to pick up their children before they getting wilder

SVTCARAT Wednesday, July 27, 2016

you suck allkpop

BlueTails Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Lmao this article is trash. Why would allkpop post an article like this? Oh yeah. Cause it's allkpop. Mere clickbait, 100 percent bias and TRASH. XD the photos prove nothing and apparently it was almost every fandom acting a bit disorderly. Yet stupid writers here writing shit based on the troll comments of one person? While all the other comments seem to say otherwise? Pfft. I can confirm one thing though. For such trash articles about a group, it surely means svt are gaining relavence and popularity

Young fandoms usually cause problems but they eventually smooth out and become good fandoms, often after being criticized and realizing how it affects the group they are a fan of. I'm a Carat too btw^^

What are fan page admins? And the journalist is surely bias. Please be neutral and do not use judgemental words when writing articles. This one sounds like even the writer dislikes & condemn the fans. Am not Carats, but dislike it if articles are blatantly bias and besides, the were other fandoms who behave equally bad but just didn't make it to the news.
