DIA fans upset after staff member “Chokes” Chaeyeon backstage

Fans captured a video of DIA’s staff member putting his hand around member Chaeyeon’s neck.

Chaeyeon and a staff member were recently captured on camera interacting backstage. The staff member was seen placing his hand around Chaeyeon’s neck in what appeared to be an aggressive fashion, however when they saw they were on camera their expressions appeared to become more playful.

When photos and a video surfaced, mixed responses came up from fans. Some believed the aggressive choking gesture was rude and too much to be called playing, not to mention Chaeyeon could have gotten hurt. Others believed the two were simply having a little fun. What do you think of the video clip?

  • Even if they’re joking around putting your hands around someone’s neck doesn’t look fun
  • Aren’t they just joking?
  • Even if they are there should be a limit
  • If they do that in front of fans, how bad does it get when fans aren’t around?
  • I don’t like stuff like that even if it’s just jokes…it’s too much
