The staff member apparently copied private information from fans who attended LOONA member Yves‘s fansign event and contacted them through KakaoTalk.
Staff: I’m sorry are you the person who was at the fan sign a while ago?
Fan: ?? Yes
Staff: I was the staff collecting tickets.
It’s just that you were so cute that I looked up your ticket and found your number. I was just wondering if you had a boyfriend.
I’m sorry if I surprised you.
Fan: Yes I have a boyfriend~
The staff member reportedly contacted multiple fans with similar messages. So far, three fans have reported him.
