“Stuff Of Nightmares”: Video Of A Sasaeng Opening Wang Yibo’s Van Door Goes Viral
K-Pop idols have many supportive and encouraging fans who simply want to enjoy the content their idol releases for them. But, unfortunately, there are also many sasaeng “fans” who cross boundaries as obsessed, stalker “fans.”
K-Pop idols and netizens have continually called sasaengs out. Recently BTS‘s Jungkook called out fans who followed him to his private schedules.
🐰 I wasn't gonna say this but… I'm so thankful for people supporting me and having interest in me. I really am. But please don't come find me when I'm working out, I was so surprised last time

And now netizens are calling out another alleged sasaeng who managed to open the door to Wang Yibo‘s van.
The viral clip shows the sasaeng fan walking near Wang Yibo’s van.
Before grabbing the handle of the van door, which shockingly opened. Even as the van kept moving, the sasaeng tried to get into the vehicle.
Before the driver stopped the van, getting out and preventing her from entering. And other staff also quickly moved her away from the van.

Why is the door unlocked?

Some netizens are suggesting that the door wasn’t locked because some car doors auto-lock after the car has driven far enough.
Reason why the door didn’t lock because these car have an auto lock. Automatic locked after going like 300/500 meters

Regardless, netizens are voicing their concern about how easy it was for her to get the door open.

And many are demanding stricter action against people like this who compromise artists’ safety.
People like this should be criminally charged and then they should let people know what the punishment was. Maybe if enough people get proper punishment they will stop stalking artist. Kind of sad to think that for a few seconds of greed she didn’t even think about him.
