Sasaeng fans cause major disturbance by following Wanna One onto their flight, make over 300 passengers reboard the plane


Sasaeng fans of Wanna One caused a major disturbance at the airport.

Around 3:25 pm on December 15, a flight from Hong Kong International Airport to Incheon International Airport got delayed due to 4 passengers, who suddenly requested to get off the plane minutes before departure.

The 4 passengers - 3 Chinese and 1 Hong Kongese - revealed to be fans of Wanna One in their 20s, purchased 2 first class, 1 business class, and 1 economy class ticket to see the idol stars on the plane.

Wanna One was flying back to Korea after the '2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards' in AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong.

The 4 fans attempted to get off the plane after boarding and seeing the members of Wanna One. However, getting off the plane after boarding is not permitted, and if a passenger leaves, then everyone else on the plane also has to get off and reboard for safety measures.

The fans continuously demanded leave, ultimately, making all 360 passengers reboard the plane. According to Korean Air, the flight attendants asked them to stay on the plane if possible but the fans caused a scene and demanded to leave. The 4 fans also demanded and received a full refund for their canceled flights.

Back in November, it was reported that Wanna One fans often purchased then canceled first-class tickets to see the idols up close.

This is the problem. They were refunded when they should have been fined for causing the delay.

If I were a passenger on that plane and missed my connecting flight, I'd sue both the saesangs and the airline.

Correction: What are women teaching their daughters? This is pathetic.

these "people" need to be banned by the airline so they can never ever use their service again, and even if someone else tried buying tickers for them, they should not be allowed to board. and that should happen to all sesaengs who do this kind of stupid selfish thing possibly causing other passengers to miss connection flights or important events and meetings. how did they get full refunds? even with flight protection you can only get that for serious reasons. horrible.
