One of G-Friend's managers is receiving a lot of hate from the girl group's fans.

Fans were initially unhappy with the way this manager acted during a recent fan signing event, and they went on to bring up past instances of the manager "unnecessarily" touching the G-Friend members. During the fan signing, Yerin expressed she had something in her hair, and according to fans, her manager unexpectedly came up behind her and touched her hair unnecessarily. 

The manager in question was also photographed grabbing Sowon's hand as she greeted fans. Fans commented, "Other managers wait backstage, so why must he grab her hand?" They added that he could've easily called her instead of making physical contact.  

Amid the uproar, G-Friend's previous manager also spoke up, tweeting, "I was a manager during their 'Rough' promotions. During my time there, we didn't approach the members like this. I think the manager in the photos didn't receive proper training."

However, many netizens are disagreeing with fans, stating, "Am I the weird one? This doesn't seem like a problem", "Are these fans kidding?", and more.

What do you think?

damn, talk about overly prude fans. Or - since gfriend has loads and loads of creepy, perverted older male fans...... im guessing these are jealous men in their 40s?

These are pretty harmless, almost brotherly gestures more than anything. He's been their manager for a couple years now. I'm sure they're all like family by this point. Whoever's offended by this needs to chill.

Plenty of managers touch their idols. It's not grabbing and it's not groping so get over it.

Managers are trained to keep distance because of reactions like this. Because they know that the fans will be jelly and go cray cray. Some kpop fans be scary, some kpop fans be dangerous.

Thought their manager was beating them or something when I read the title... what's the issue? Or are the fanboys just mad that the manager gets to touch the girls that they can't?

i thought it was something else too. lol

it does not look like a big deal but in my 10 years as a kpop fan, I've never seen a manager touch a girl group member this way so i really can't criticize fans who are upset with it.
