This massive group of aggressively excited fans is the second incident this week, following NCT U’s swarm of fans in Thailand. Other instances of fan hysteria have been popping up recently, including BTOB‘s Sungjae and Peniel being touched on the face, and GOT7‘s Jackson begging saesangs to leave him alone.
