There was not even as much as an arm’s distance between the student crowd and the girls, thus leading Aespa not to have much privacy. Not only that, but the students even broke security roles and met Aespa on stage taking photographs with them.

After the event, the students posted photos of them with the girls with quite inappropriate comments towards the female idols. Fans as soon as they found out about this incident were totally raged.
