The 2023 MAMA Awards was an eventful moment for ATEEZ as they accepted an award for being a worldwide favorite. But their acceptance speech took a hilarious turn when Yeosang saw a fan’s unfiltered reaction to being noticed.
As the group’s leader Hongjoong gave his acceptance speech, the camera captured a fan holding up a Yeosang fan sign. When the fan noticed she was on camera, she freaked out. Her raw reaction sparked laughter from the audience.
However, they weren’t the only ones laughing. Yeosang nearly burst into laughter, smiling as he covered his face to hide his own reaction. That wasn’t enough, though.
The fan’s reaction was so funny that Yeosang couldn’t stay still. While still covering his face, he tried to turn away. Eventually, he settled on keeping his lips sealed so he wouldn’t laugh.
The hilarious moment went viral as ATINYs laughed at their reactions. They even pointed out how the funny moment was replayed at the end of the show for everyone to enjoy a second time.

Although Yeosang tried to hide his reaction, that made the interaction between him and the fan even funnier.
