It seems that the love from one of Crayon Pop’s fans is a little bit too strong. While the five cuties performed in Seoul on November 14, a male fan pushed himself on stage to try and hug member ChoA — sending security into red alert.
An 11 second video of the surfaced online today, showing the “Bar Bar Bar” cuties in shock as the overzealous fan rushed up to 23-year-old ChoA, who is clearly unsure of what’s going on.
Crayon Pop’s agency, Chrome Entertainment, released a statement explaining the situation. “The members were coming off stage, and a man ran over with his hand outstretched,” it reads. “So, she proceeded to shake his hand. However, he suddenly pulled ChoA into an embrace, and she was very shocked.”
The spokesman continues: “We have never seen him before. Even the fans on site said they didn’t know who he was. Thankfully, ChoA twisted her body away from him so she was able to avoid any kind of sexual contact. We’re thankful it was just a small ordeal.”
It’s unknown what happened to the unknown male fan, although a spokesman for the group tells IdolWow! the company has no plans to take legal action.
