Hands off! EXO’s Lay was the victim of very handsy fan during the group’s first EXO PLANET #2 — EXO’luXion concert in Bangkok, Thailand, today.
A photo of the 21-year-old singer — whose real name is Zhang Yixing — surfaced on social media soon after the June 20 concert showing the idol standing close to the crowd while an overzealous female fan seemingly reaches out and attempts to put her hand down the waistband of his leather pants.
The identify of the front row fan is unknown, but it hasn’t stopped photos of the incident spreading like wildfire on numerous social platforms, including Twitter and Weibo.
And it comes as no surprise that news of the alleged molestation didn’t go down well with dedicated fans (EXO-L’s) around the world, who expressed their outrage at the invasion of Lay’s privacy.
A fan even got to hold Yixing's pants. Wtf. No angle trick or something. I saw it anyway and it was too obvious that she's gripping it.

The concert took place at Bangkok’s Impact Muang Thong Than arena and saw 12,000 fans fill out the sold out stadium. Says an event organiser, “It registered as one of the loudest concerts we have ever had. The fans were very excited.”

No comment about the incident has been made by SM Entertainment but something tells us there might be one or two extra security guards standing by the audience at their next Bangkok show on Sunday.
Tell us: Did Lay’s superfan take things too far?
