Of course, like all K-Pop idols, Felix’s fame and popularity will always have downsides. Netizens have raised concerns after posts shared on Weibo gained attention where the user has sent malicious messages with threats towards Felix.

In the posts, the user claimed they bought a laser pen with the intention of using it to harm Felix. Although they seem harmless, laser pens are known to cause extreme damage to people.

Many also shared that the same account has also been sharing misinformation about member Hyunjin, with many worried for his safety and wellbeing.

Although it isn’t uncommon for idols to receive threats, many fans have shared their concerns as Stray Kids are set to travel to China for a fansign event.

With many of the posts tagging the event, STAYs are rightly worried that the OP might attend the event and fulfill their promise to hurt Felix.

When the images were shared online, netizens demanded protection for the young idol. Over the past few days, fans have noticed the number of interactions with the post growing at an alarming rate.

While it’s not uncommon for idols to receive threats, netizens believe that companies take them too lightly and want JYP to take action. The fansign event with China is getting nearer, and many worry that this one user might be serious and could try and hurt Felix and the other members.

It seems as the event gets closer, the user is posting more alarmingly dangerous threats toward the idol. K-Pop companies have a duty to protect their artists, and many netizens hope JYP Entertainment will look into the user to ensure Felix and the rest of the members’ protection.
