6 Times K-pop Idols Dealt With Sasaengs Themselves: EXO Baekhyun, GOT7 Youngjae, More

Among the hundreds of thousands of fans of K-pop idols are those who are called “sasaengs.” These individuals are described as obsessive fans who will go to any extreme to get closer to their favorite artists. Aside from stalking, they are also known for invading the privacy of the singers by taking photographs, going to their homes, and more.

While some K-pop idols prefer to not engage with sasaengs, there are some who are brave enough to deal with them themselves- below are six examples.

The first one on our list is EXO Baekhyun, who has long been suffering due to obsessive Eris. One time, he received an unwanted phone call from a sasaeng, who harassed him for “bothering” his co-member Sehun. But, he dealt with the situation perfectly.

During a certain live broadcast, the idol seemed to have had enough of those fans, and so directly told them that he hates them.

Baekhyun said, “Even at this time when I’m spending time with all of you, sasaeng fans are still calling [me].. I hate it, I really hate it. But I love all of you EXO-Ls… I hate sasaengs.”

GOT7 Youngjae is another K-pop idol who has been frustrated with sasaeng fans for years. In fact, he often voices his anger towards them. For instance, back in 2020, the main vocalist was spotted by a sasaeng fan and was photographed without his permission. The singer expressed his anger over this incident on Instagram.

He wrote, “Don’t come up to the shop. And was that a threat? You can’t just take a picture of me chatting with other people at a cafe without my permission and then ask me, ‘Can I post this?'” He then answered the fan’s question by saying, “If you want to see a person’s life get ruined, go ahead and upload it.”

One of the common things sasaengs fans do is to get as close as they can to their favorite K-pop idols and take photos or record them. BTS V experienced this situation at an airport, and while he was walking, he immediately took action to prevent them from getting too close to him. He got his phone and pretended to take pictures of the fans who were behind him. When he did this, the fans quickly stepped back.

NCT Yuta always shows his sweet personality to NCTzens, but he isn’t like that towards sasaengs. As a matter of fact, when a group of sasaeng fans were hanging outside NCT’s dorms one time, Yuta was seen flipping them off and telling them to “get lost.”

A few years ago, Changmin was caught dragging a sasaeng fan out of a taxi he was supposed to ride. A clip of this incident was spread online. Actually, there were several fans inside the taxi, but Changmin only dragged the one sitting on the right side.

Male K-pop idols aren’t the only ones who have the guts to deal with sasaeng fans themselves, even female artists can do it.
