J STAYC and the rest of the group were traveling abroad for a scheduled event. As is common with KPop idols, fans gathered at the airport to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars and to exchange brief greetings. However, one fan felt that J’s greeting was not polite enough. This fan, who considers themselves an eonnie (a respectful term for an older sister in Korean), expected a more formal greeting from J.

As J waved to the fans, he did not fully turn his body to face the fan who was shouting for attention. This led the fan to criticize J loudly, accusing him of being disrespectful. The situation quickly escalated, causing J to feel confused and taken aback by the harsh reaction.

A video of the incident went viral on social media, showing the fan repeatedly scolding J for his perceived lack of respect. The fan’s insistence that J should be more respectful because they were older did not sit well with many viewers.

The fan’s aggressive behavior and repeated corrections of J’s actions were met with widespread disapproval from other fans and KNetz (Korean Netizens). Many praised J for handling the situation calmly despite the public reprimand.

One netizen commented, “What’s with the way he talks? Is he (the fan) a bully? From being followed to the airport, being called rude things like that. It’s not easy being a KPop idol.”
