While Korea Music Festival 2018 was an event where K-Pop fans all over the world have been looking forward to, what transpired behind the scenes was something that they did not expect and most definitely not one that they would have approved of.
According to South Korean news agency Insight, the management has been showing backstage clips of K-Pop idols preparing for their stage performance to fans who paid to see them. The biggest problem was that the idols had no idea that they were being filmed and seem to have found it disturbing when they found out.
Apink members were alarmed when they found out that they were being filmed. Member HaYoung posted on Instagram that she wasn't aware that she was on camera while backstage, discussing the issue with other members.
In light of such event, K-Pop fans have been in uproar and netizens on various online communities have been criticizing the management.
The management has not yet responded to the situation.
