Sasaengs have been every K-Pop idol’s biggest problem. Their obsessive behaviors towards their biases have put them in a distress. Recently, EXO’s Baekhyun has experienced another level of sasaengs’ insanity as he greeted his fans on Instagram live streaming.
Baekhyun did a live streaming on his Instagram on April 17. He casually talked to fans about his latest single “Take You Home” and his thought on the music video. Baekhyun even sang a piece of his latest single to fans, Korea Boo reported. However, Baekhyun’s intimate moments with fans were suddenly interrupted. Fans noticed that Baekhyun seemed to have connectivity problems multiple times during the live streaming.
Baekhyun quickly got back to his live streaming and explained to fans that he’d been receiving a lot of phone calls from unknown numbers that resulted in the connectivity problem. One of his fans suggested putting the phone into airplane mode and switching it to WIFI so he wouldn’t be bothered by phone calls. He instantly took the fan’s suggestion and continued to talk to his fans.
The EXO member couldn’t hide his annoyed face because of the incident. However, Baekhyun still maintained his cool and apologized to fans for the interruption. He admitted that it was unbelievable those crazy fans could find his phone number.
This is not the first time Baekhyun had to deal with sasaengs. Back in 2013, Baekhyun’s overly-obsessive fan showed up at his older brother’s wedding with their cameras waiting for him and EXO to arrive. The wedding, which was supposed to be a special moment for the whole family, turned into chaos as sasaengs running to and fro hoping they would get closer to Baekhyun.
EXO members really have a hard time with sasaengs. Previously, they almost got kidnapped by sasaengs that rented a van identical to EXO’s, deceiving the members to get into the van. Former EXO member, Luhan, has even written a song to express his distress about sasaengs that constantly trying to get into his personal life.
