Voyeurism into the Kpop fandom Part 2 B - Crazy Fangirls....not to be left out Fanboys can be too

So I realized along with my crazy fangirls post I should have said fans.... So let me correct that now. Because not be outdone let's include fanboys. I won't get into great detail as I don't have a lot of experience with it (ya know cuz I'm a girl) but who doesn't remember this incident at the beginning of last year?

SNSD's Taeyeon attempted abduction while performing Angel Price Music Festival. That's right a fanboy walked right on stage and attempted to pull her off. Luckily for her Sunny was right there and paying attention. Sunny can be seen following them and then grabbing Taeyeon to stop them. And props to the MC of the event who started wrestling with him to let her go until security got there. Watch it here>>

Now I'm not here to debate if the performance should have continued or not. But I will say that it's a crazy situation. Once again it shows the lengths that certain fans will go to obtain the person of their obsession. (and here you thought I was just being mean) There's an article HERE on AllKpop about the incident.

What I find more disturbing is that SM Ent. decided NOT to press charges because he was student and very, very sorry. Article HERE.

*ok personal opinion*
So it's no wonder that SM has such a bad reputations concerning their artists. From slave contracts to kidnapping SM has practically covered all the bases. I mean really?! No pressing of charges? That sends a great message. "Hey as long as your a good student and very sorry, you can grab one of our idols off stage during a live performance it's ok. As long as we catch you and you don't hurt her/him, FREE PASS." Throw in SBS Gayo Daejun 2011 and no wonder their new motto is becoming 'EAT FOOD'. Check out this Tumblr for a good laugh.

How scary for her. Where the hell was security when he got on stage, though. Dang crazies!

No one knows. He totally just snuck on stage past everyone. You can tell from the fans that they thought it was a part of the show... Scary isn't it?

You know for like 5 mins i forgot all about that attempt, was like SM wanted it swept under the rug and no one was to speak of it scary.
