And fans love all the different interactions between idol groups, like watching ATEEZ and ITZY enjoy Stray Kids‘ performance.
But there have been other unexpected viral moments, like the fight between fans trying to be the first to enter the venue.

Another similarly uncomfortable viral moment is of two women, who were initially believed to be the same person, at ENHYPEN‘s hi-touch. Many fans had adorable interactions with EHYPEN.
I gave a 🙇♀️ to Jake during hi-touch and he also 🙇♂️ back. . . and then after, HE WAS GIGGLING. . . LIKE THE CLASSIC JAKE GIGGLE… 😭😂 idk why. . . maybe he finds it cute 💟#ENHYPEN_JAKE #ENHYPEN #ENHYPENinLA #KCON2022LA pic.twitter.com/7jYXYbDlkf

But one fan ended up delaying the line and impacting the time other fans got to spend with the members. According to fans at the fansign and a video, the woman stayed in front of Jake, who was last in the line, and refused to move even as the staff tried to escort her off the stage.
This forced other fans to hurry through the hi-touch to make up for the time she took.
my friend ended up being rushed bc of one of the ladies and wasn’t even allowed to wave to the boys

And fans were understandably concerned for the safety of ENHYPEN since the woman was able to resist the staff for so long.
ma'am, you need to get some help. this is horrible. you didn't just made him uncomfortable but you could've traumatized him. https://t.co/T2UIHqEHIa

Fans also pointed out that another woman was shouting for Jake to marry her daughter, which they agreed must also have been uncomfortable for ENHYPEN. Allegedly the woman also tried to pay one-thousand US dollars for the hi-touch to ensure Jake met her daughter.
some of y’all don’t deserve to have hi touch or see enha at all 😭😭 why r u, a grown ass women, asking jake if he can marry ur daughter

Both ladies are so weird. Jake's not gonna marry her daughter, and Jake wont even remember the other lady after this… but now he might since she had to be pulled away from him🥲 Why is it always Jake 😭 https://t.co/ScscRYlxgK
