I’m excited and happy to perform,” she continued. Moreover, during her speech with the audience, Taeyeon talked about what she hoped the concert would be for the audience.

“I want to present a concert that is remembered as a scent,” she said. However, it rather than thinking of her request as referring to a smell, she was more so hoping that they would have an all-around memorable and positive experience.

For the singer, she also wanted it to be something that she could think back on fondly. “I feel sad when I go home after the show. I hope this will be a performance that I can nostalgically remember.”

Chinese Newspaper Asks If K-Pop Fans Are a Threat to Airport Security

Yesterday, the South China Morning Post published an article about the potential threat throngs on K-pop fans pose to airport security.

K-pop boy group EXO arrive at Wuhan Airport in China

Charming and charismatic, visiting K-pop stars always attract large crowds of fans who wait in droves in and around airports for a chance to see their favorite stars in person. However, their presence and a few’s extreme behaviors can be an inconvenience to other flyers and create a dangerous situation.

Jun Mai, the author of the article points out that so far this year Beijing’s Capital Airport’s Terminal 3 has experienced seven reported incidents caused by “impassioned fans.” Just this month, fans of the group Nine Percent forced their way through a boarding gate, boarded a plane, and made their wait to first class where the group was settling in. As a result, the plan was delayed for about two hours.

Causing such a disruption and breaching security can have grave ramifications. This is doubly important considering changes to international aviation laws due to terrorists who have hijacked planes.

In addition to paralyzing airports, fans may have broken laws regarding personal privacy, having somehow obtained information about celebrities flights. Furthermore, their presence can be detrimental to the health of the very stars they want to see.

Celebrity Security

Last August, Girls’ Generation Taeyeon posted a message to fans on her Instagram. In the post, the singer addressed the anxiety attack she had when a massive crowd of supporters greeted her when she disembarked from her plane. Though unintentional, the large crowd pushed and shoved the singer causing her to fall.

Due to the size of crows, airport security could bearly keep them at bay. Videos of the incident and Taeyeon’s subsequent post highlighted the safety challenges that entertainment agencies and their stars face.

As a result of the continued interruption, the Chinese government has implemented a new law that began on May 1. Under this new law, people creating a disturbance at check-in counters or blocking passageways may be subject to a social credit record demerit or banned from flying for up to one year.
