Fans Reportedly Dash Through Changi Airport To Catch Arrival Of K-Pop Group NCT 127

Fans Go On Stampede In Changi Airport For Korean Boy Band NCT 127

Most people have probably gone through a phase where they idolise a celebrity or band, especially during their teenage years.

One would usually collect all of the star’s albums, go to all their movies, and hang posters of them all over one’s bedroom wall.

However, others can take their idolisation to new heights, like these K-pop fans who reportedly dashed through Changi Airport to catch a glimpse of Korean boy band NCT 127.

The band had been in town for their Singaporean concert, which took place on Saturday (2 Jul).

According to a comment by OP, they were there to greet South-Korean boy band NCT 127, who flew into town for a concert held yesterday (2 Jul).

They arrived at the international airport on Friday (1 Jul) on the same flight the OP happened to be on.

While OP was not on the way to catch the band, she was trying to get to her mother, who was caught on the other side of the stampede.


Netizens poke fun at fans with humorous comments

As one can expect in bizarre incidents like this, netizens came through immediately with rib-tickling comments.

One user joked that if a zombie apocalypse actually happens one day, he would surely die as he would mistake the sight of people running as fangirls chasing their idol.

Another remarked that Physical Education (PE) teachers would be proud as they had been training their students for a moment like this.

NCT 127 held concert at Singapore Indoor Stadium

The South Korean boy band put on a show for their Singaporean fans on 2 Jul at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

It was their first-ever show in the country since the Covid-19 pandemic, as they had last performed here in Jul 2019.

The band consists of nine members: Moon Tae-il, Johnny Suh, Lee Tae-yong, Yuta Nakamoto, Kim Dong-young (Doyoung), Jeong Yun-o (Jaehyun), Kim Jung-woo, Mark Lee and Lee Dong-hyuck (Haechan).

However, one member – Yuta – was not present at the concert on Saturday as he had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Hope no one was injured in stampede

As crowded as Changi Airport may be nowadays, you don’t see such a large crowd running through it every day.

We hope no one was injured and the artistes were given ample space to move through the airport.

There is nothing wrong with worshipping idols, so long as we remember to stay safe and be respectful of stars’ personal space.
