EXO’s Chanyeol was recently seen at the airport being chased by sasaengs as he tried to run away and fans are extremely upset.
*Sasaengs are obsessive fans who often invade the privacy of celebrities through stalking or other behavior.
A video clip that caught the moment showed Chanyeol running in the airport as a group of fans chase after him. Chanyeol was apparently on his way to a vacation in Japan.
An airport is not a playground. It is not meant for people to run. Please leave Chanyeol alone and respect his space. He shouldn’t have found the need to run if those people respected his personal space. Please learn pic.twitter.com/PpPfyqIteC

This was certainly not the first time this has happened to Chanyeol. In fact, Chanyeol had previously encountered a similar experience in August when he could not hide his expression, especially after he was pushed.
Not long after, a similar incident happened again and his shoe even got ripped as a result. This time, he took it upon himself to upload a post on his Instagram asking fans to stop overcrowding the airport.
“To all the fans who greet me at the airport, I would appreciate it if you could keep order. We’re not the only ones at the airport. There are other passengers, people waiting for their beloved family members, young children and more.
If something had gone wrong, it could’ve been someone’s foot instead of my slippers that were ripped apart. Our security guards continually asked others to stop pushing, but there was no order at all.
Thankfully no one was hurt today, but I’m writing this because I’m concerned that these events will continue. I ask that you take precaution so that no one gets hurt at these public locations.
Thank you for always loving us, and I will aim to become someone who can repay that love.”
Fans are extremely upset about the most recent incident as it happened after Chanyeol had specifically addressed the issue not that long ago. Fans who saw the video were extremely upset about how some fans could not respect their artist’s privacy and felt terrible for Chanyeol who couldn’t even have some peace during his personal vacation.
how many times have chanyeol talked about behaving appropriately at the airport? how many times more must his privacy be invaded and how many times more must he be upset before this stops?

chanyeol shouldn't have to run from anyone ANYWHERE, especially not in a crowded place like an airport where there's families and young children. he's already scolded people for invading his space/privacy and endangering others by acting recklessly. leave him alone.
