TWICE was at the airport to head to Japan for their “TWICE SHOWCASE LIVE TOUR 2018 ‘Candy Pop'” and while waiting in line to head through security, several lasers were pointed at the members’ heads.
Some of these lasers were shot dangerously close to their eyes, which can cause severe damage to the retina and even blinding in severe cases.
While the TWICE members did not seem to notice the lasers, and continued to smile and wave as they made their way through the airport, fans became outraged, wondering who would do such a thing.
Anti fans using laser pointers to distract and even harm artists is unfortunately not a rare occurrence in K-Pop. During her time with I.O.I, Chaeyeon was also targeted with a laser pointer during a performance.
