Not only have fans of WayV been voicing their concerns about the treatment of the group by their own staff, but fans are also coming to the defense of NCT‘s Haechan against one of their bodyguards.
The bodyguard in question took to his Instagram story to share an interaction he had with Haechan. After sending him a message, that was nearly erased upon sharing, he didn’t receive a reply from the idol, even though it had been marked as seen.
He wasn’t pleased with the lack of reply. Taking matters into his own hands, he added text to the screenshot of the conversation and expressed his anger at Haechan viewing the message and ignoring it. What made fans upset was the way he referred to Haechan, calling him a “son of a b*tch.”
He had the AUDACITY of calling H*echan 이.새.끼. (s0n of a b1tch basically) and it's EXTREMELY RUDE. He shouldn't be allowed to be or breathe next to the boys, @SMTOWNGLOBAL get your shit together and fire him #드림위더스_OUT pic.twitter.com/1Jxr9vP39G

The explicit and unprofessional words have fans demanding that SM Entertainment fire him and focus more on protecting their artists from situations and people such as this.

Other fans have even delved deeper into the matter, finding out that the bodyguard was not a part of SM Entertainment’s staff but from an outside company. Because of this, he shouldn’t have contacted Haechan directly and instead went through the group’s manager. They’ve also accused him of leaking schedules on his Instagram account.
see this sh!t?? haechan didn't have to reply to his ugly ass, just like he had no business contacting him directly… you have something to say? contact his manager, do your job like you're supposed to and keep your nasty mouth away from our boy.

Regarding the entire situation, SM Entertainment has yet to address any of it or even WayV’s matters.
