Fans immediately began to question the safety of the jungle gym set. Without proper floor boltings to hold it down in place, unlike regular jungle gyms, the structure could be dangerous. Even if 2m is not a tall height for most, the structure still looked flimsy.

This flimsy thing is a jungle gym? I’m speechless. Ah, this is so dumbfounding, f*ck.

Criticism was directed at the production company and SM Entertainment for not double-checking the safety.

As safety is a top priority for any event or filming, fans are highly disappointed at those in charge of the commercial and the boys’ safety.
