DSP Media has recently been busy shutting down several K-Pop idol girl group April's fan sites, and the fans are rejoicing.
Yes, you heard that correctly. They are rejoicing after hearing the news.
And you may no doubt be asking why fans would be happy to see their idol group's fan sites being shut down.
The reason is simple. It's because the majority of these fan sites are actually hives for sasaengs, or so the real fans believe.
The problems that sasaengs pose for K-Pop idols and their agencies is quite serious. In the past, some have even almost killed some idols, notably TVXQ members. And there was even a case where a sasaeng fan attached a GPS tracking device onto a vehicle that was supposed to drive Wanna One members to their destinations.
Thankfully, DSP Media's recent actions show that they take the issue with sasaengs very seriously and are doing their best to protect members of April.
