According to various media outlet reports back on May 12, solo singer Wonho and MONSTA X members Kihyun and I.M returned to Seoul's Gimpo International Airport on the same flight, after enjoying a private trip together to Jeju island.
Despite the fact that the three singers were away on personal matters, numerous press crews were present at the airport on this day in order to capture the stars on their way home.
Netizens responded to the coverage of Wonho, Kihyun, and I.M's airport arrival by the press with mixed comments. Some said,
"Celebs really have no privacy ;;"
"Just leave them alone honestly."
"Clearly, all those press cameramen and those sasaengs are at fault here. These idols weren't trying to advertise to the whole world that they are still friends. This wasn't a public schedule, but they still intruded on their privacy without a care."
"Why are the media outlets reporting these photos like 'Hey everyone, we're back from Jeju!'. So annoying."
"It doesn't seem right to criticize their private lives."
"Even if they are former group mates, do you expect them to go on a trip undercover or something?"
While others felt,
"Even if they are still close personally, from the fans' perspective, it's difficult to see."
"There's no way that people wouldn't have found out about this. They weren't thinking about the fans or about their public image one bit."
"Even if you're still friends behind the scenes, you need to be careful not to make headlines like this in public."
"It's a little uncomfortable seeing some members enjoying themselves on Jeju while another member is resting because of health problems."
"Well sorry for interfering in your friendship then."
"There's gotta be something every comeback..."
