every K-Pop idol has loyal fans who support their work. Not only fans who support positively but there are also a handful of people who are excessive and obsessive so that it interferes with the artist’s personal life.
They even use extreme methods to meet idols more closely. Here is a series of stories of K-pop idols who had scary experiences when dealing with sasaengs.
1. Taecyeon and Chansung 2PM
Recently, Taecyeon and Chansung talked about their terrible experience with sasaengs while abroad. Taecyeon explained that while they were going to Singapore for a concert, the members were staying at a hotel and he shared a room with Chansung.
At that time, both of them did not wear clothes when sleeping. Suddenly they heard the hotel room door open followed by the giggling sounds of five to six women. Chansung was surprised that someone in front of him immediately shouted and Taecyeon immediately issued an expletive in English.
Instead of apologizing, the women cursed back at Taecyeon. Both also reported the incident to the hotel and as an apology, the two 2 PM members were given champagne.
2. Kim Jaejoong
One of the 2nd generation idols once told of his life for 12 years followed by a sasaeng while attending a Late Night Studio event. This sasaeng followed Jaejoong when he was still promoting TVXQ and JYJ. Often these rabid fans try to break into his apartment door so that he has to change the door lock frequently. Not only that, but the fans also bought an apartment unit near Jaejoong so they could continue to be with their idol. Jaejoong has many cars so that it is not easy for the person to follow.
3. Super Junior’s Heechul
Heechul told the madness of Super Junior’s sasaeng. When he opened the door and entered his apartment, the sasaengs were already inside and hiding in the corners of the house. Not only that, but they will also take the members’ underwear to be photographed and hang their underwear there. Heechul was also chased by a sasaeng until he almost had an accident. These things make him think that the sasaeng is the enemy.
4. Suga BTS
One of the BTS rappers has experienced a terrible incident. He was almost forced to kiss by a sasaeng. In a video, a person can be seen running towards Suga and forcing him to kiss him.
Surprised Suga immediately walked away from the person assisted by staff. Unpleasant incidents with sasaengs have also been experienced by BTS members several times when they were filming in Sweden. After the members finished eating at a cafe, they were immediately chased by a group of fanatics.
In 2014, a sasaeng made a post saying that he sold D.O’s underwear and got it directly from EXO’s dorm. In addition, these sasaengs have also released conversations of EXO members while playing online games and disrupting Baekhyun’s sister’s wedding. Even now, they continue to disturb the members’ lives by calling hundreds of times, following their activities, and waiting at the apartment door.
