On May 20, the girl group performed at a festival for a Daegu university, where a male concertgoer is reported to have yelled sexual remarks at Oh My Girl. The offender was caught on video (1:51~1:53), and another university student posted the clip to the school’s SNS as well as online community, criticizing the foul-mouthed man.
The post put the man on blast, adding that there were elementary students and high school students present at the festival. The post further pointed out the man’s sexual comments were even more inappropriate as one Oh My Girl member is only 16 years old. Unsurprisingly, the incident caused a lot of outrage among university students and other netizens.
WM Entertainment responded on May 24, “The members were in the middle of the concert at the time, so they did not personally hear any of the sexual harassment. On the agency’s end, we plan to apply measures that will protect our artists.”
