Despite their small size, insects can be quite frightening, especially if they take you by surprise. On several occasions, idols are have been taken by surprise on stage with flying bugs. Here are a few times idols reacted to bugs, sometimes running away in fear and sometimes dealing with them like a boss!
1. Seolhyun (AOA)
During one of AOA’s performance, a huge mantis jumped right onto Seolhyun’s leg.
Rather than panicking, however, Seolhyun just froze and waited calmly as the other members helped her get it off.
IU is an idol who doesn’t even bat an eye when she sees insects. It is almost shocking how unaffected IU was when this decent-sized bug landed on her lap! She simply flicked it off like it was a piece of dust and went about her business. Some fans have said that the way she flicks off the bug is like the way she flicks of haters!
3. SinB (GFRIEND)
When a bug started getting near SinB on stage, she automatically started running way away from it and it almost looked like she was about to cry!
4. Yerin (GFRIEND)
Unlike SinB, Yerin doesn’t seem to be too afraid of insects as she was seen kicking one away on stage. Although Yerin was kicking it away, SinB still seemed frightened by it!
5. Jungyeon (TWICE)
Jungyeon casually kicked a bug away during the middle of a performance like it was nothing!
6. Solar (MAMAMOO)
It seemed pretty obvious that Solar scared when a bug approached her, but she tried to act like she was fine afterwards.
7. Hani (EXID)
Hani completely took off as soon as she saw a bee, right in the middle of a performance!
8. Taemin (SHINee)
Taemin was so startled by a bug that he knocked the hat off of his head.
The expression on his face truly says it all.
In another performance, Taemin didn’t know what to do with himself with all the bugs around him and while it was frightening for Taemin, fans couldn’t handle his cuteness.
9. Hana (gugudan)
During a nice meal outdoors, Hana shooed away an insect as if it were the most natural thing in the world!
10. Baekhyun (EXO)
Baekhyun screamed right into the mic during an interview when the other EXO members showed him the bug they removed from his shoulder.
In fact, there have been many instances when Baekhyun seemed terrified after being “attacked” by insects on stage.
Bonus: Hyeyeon (BESTie)
Hyeyeon is not only unafraid of insects, she is a big fan! She has uploaded photos of huge cicadas on her finger, introducing it as a “friend” in the past.
Apparently, she had more of these “friends” as she also posted a cute photo of herself with her friend, dragonfly.
