That is exactly what some fans did for SM's recent vacation to Hawaii in celebration of their 20th anniversary, and from the pictures circulating online, it appears that the artists weren't able to get a moment of peace and quiet from all the hubbub caused by the people tailing them wherever they went. Fan-taken photos of various SM artists were shared through online community posts, and it shows the artists enjoying (or at least trying to) enjoy their vacation, taking pictures, lazing about in the warm sand, and splashing in the water to cool down.
Unfortunately, the artists couldn't get away from the swarm of fans no matter where they went, followed around as they went about their business in Hawaii.
Netizens on this post were incredulous at the photos, blaming SM for revealing the date and locations of the vacation and not taking the artists somewhere more remote. They wrote:
"It looks more like a sasaeng rally..."
"I heard Red Velvet even went with their hair all tied up and that they hid tightly under their hoodies but they are going to be exposed all the same. If [SM] were really planning to give them a break, then they would have left more quietly."
"It's a shame they won't have a proper vacation and rest."
"That's a vacation?"
"I didn't realize it was a trip SM jointly planned with fans loool I never got to apply!"
