Netizens frowned at the recent bizarre action that some fans took in their effort to get close to their favorite idol stars.

On May 9, NCT's Jaehyun visited a poll site to vote for the next president of South Korea.  He was in line waiting for his turn when he was bombarded by avid fans holding professional-looking zoom lens cameras hoping to capture the perfect angle.

Wearing masks, the girls surrounded the poll site clicking the shutter button away at rapid speed.

Upon witnessing the unusual encounter, a netizen posted the incident on an online community board.  Netizen A commented, "Fans had the nerve to enter the poll site and take pictures of an idol.  The representatives warned them to stop taking photos, however, the fans ignored them and did not stop.  I quickly cast my vote and left the poll site because I was angry."

Another person mentioned, "I overheard one fan even calling up another on the phone saying that 'he might take the elevator so be on standby and get ready to shoot.'  I felt bad for him."

Fans are getting out of control going to extreme measures, just to get photos of their favorite idols. Even GOT7's Jackson suffered a back injury after getting in a car accident back in September 2016 when sasaeng fans stalked him.

I feel like Korea needs an IDOL holiday where no fans are allowed to approach or take photos of them for a week. so they can roam around.

what even is privacy to these people

isn't it illegal to be present at a voting site like that? I know such people would be arrested in many countries...

wow I feel sad towards Jaehyun, even in his voting he doesn't have any privacy and as well for the other artist who experience this kind situation.

You complain about them, but still post their photos to your site. Hypocracy much?

If korea doesn't have absent voter ballots like america does, i think they should start or idols should start voting this way. That way, idols don't have to go to the polls to vote and this stuff won't happen to them.

seeing this i srsly want to apologize on their behalf but it's not my problem that fans are acting this way, i hope they (fans) would understand it too and give their precious idols some privacy
