According to South Korean news agency Insight, [KMF] management has been showing backstage clips of K-Pop idols preparing for their stage performance to fans who paid to see them. [...] the idols had no idea that they were being filmed and seem to have found it disturbing when they found out.
Hmmm?? So the backstage videos that we got from kmf is unknown to the artists?? So this is Apink members asking on instagram upon seeing the videos spreading around 'This is scary. We were filmed' 'Do these videos get released?' 'Does any member know that we are getting filmed?' pic.twitter.com/77eE22KjA4— 🍑🌟 (@kdaniel9600) August 2, 2018
Apink members also raising the issue because this is where they get changed so i believe they do feel uncomfortable that they are getting filmed without their knowledge and all that— 🍑🌟 (@kdaniel9600) August 2, 2018
