Girls’ Generation Hyoyeon is not a woman who would keep quiet if a man tries to do anything bad to her.
She had to defend herself from an unknown staff member a couple of times at a recent music event.
On September 15, Hyoyeon attended World Club Dome music event, she was a stage guest of Dimitri Vegas. She has shared an exciting video of the event joined by Dimitri Vegas and DJ Raiden as well.

Fans enjoyed the event and were happy to see Hyoyeon there. However, that happiness was cut short when an audiovisual video of Hyoyeon shouting a man in English spread online, fans were not happy with what they heard.
The video is shot chaotically and features her voice in the background, she was saying,
“Excuse me, don’t touch me. Don’t touch me.”
Hyoyeon repeated this sentence a couple of times, this scared fans who thought it suggested that someone was trying to physically touch the idol without her consent.
It is also believed he is a foreigner because she was speaking in English. The video quality is shot badly and doesn’t show the people in question, its not enough to determine who could it have been.
The footage spread online and netizens are trying to find the culprit and digest the situation as well, someone can also be heard saying,
“My stage, my rules.. that you don’t film me… otherwise you can (inaudible) go down stairs.”
However, everyone is hearing something different and some believe this is the man who has been disrespecting Hyoyeon and trying to touch her inappropriately.
As you’d expect both Korean and international fans were furious when they saw the video and heard what was being said, they can’t believe that Hyoyeon was treated like that at an event she was a special guest on!
Here is the video, watch and judge for yourself:
Hyoyeon asked to not to be touched not just once, but FOUR times.

What do you think of this?
At first I was furious but after listening to the video a couple of times and hearing how her voice disappeared in the background I have two possible scenarios.
He was trying to touch her without her consent so it seems, this makes me angry but there could be two possible reasons.
One of the reasons could be that Hyoyeon was supposed to get off the backstage but she didn’t and he was trying to escort her out and she refused or probably didn’t understand.
Or he could have been trying to do something inappropriate and Hyoyeon was furious.
Since he’s a foreigner there is good possibility he didn’t know who she was or that she was a guest or he couldn’t really recognize her face since you all know foreigners struggle to tell Asians apart sometimes.
I don’t want to lash at him too much not knowing the context of the situation because I don’t want to accuse someone of something radical without proof but again he should have not touched her without her consent and that’s something we all agree on.
I just hope that she is okay! I don’t know…. its not easy to tell by this video, it bad quality!
