Fans of different groups point lasers at Red Velvet Yeri during her graduation ceremony.
On February 7, thousands of students all over South Korea donned their uniforms for the last time at their graduation ceremony. However, what was supposed to be a happy and celebratory event, took a dark turn for Red Velvet member Yeri.
Behind the scene photos of the Yeri’s graduation from Hanlim Multi Art School revealed a startling image. During the young star’s graduations, a dozen red lasers were pointed at her — mostly at her face.
While eye damage from pocket lasers, like the one used on Yeri, is unlikely, there are some genuine concerns. If the manufacturer does not properly calibrate the pocket lasers to federal standards, they can damage the retina of the eye.
Notwithstanding, the harassment should not have taken place, and Netizens have expressed anger and exasperation at the incident. Meanwhile, Red Velvet recently returned with the R&B hit “Bad Boy.”
