On February 20, KST, the group departed from Japan, returning to Korea for upcoming schedules, including Jeno’s upcoming appearance at Milan Fashion Week.

While the group were leaving Japan, the crowd, while excited to see them, remained calm behind barricades, allowing the members to wave farewell.

Once the group arrived at Incheon airport, it seemed like things would remain calm, similar to the situation in Japan.

However, as the group headed to the exit, fans attempted to get close to the group, turning the arrival into a mobbing situation. Security can be seen attempting to instruct the crowd to back up, with little results.

Security got much more aggressive in protecting the artists, forming human barricades to keep fans from getting too close to the group.

Staff can be seen pushing back fans, even shoving them back hard enough that they have no choice but to move.

The group are able to make it outside relatively quick, though the crowd continues to push and shove.

While security treating fans roughly has previously trended with mixed opinions, NCT DREAM have often endured awful airport mobbing. Chenle even spoke out after his mother was involved in a mobbing situation while he visited home.

Because of this, fans online have praised the security for taking steps to keep the group safe.
