SEVENTEEN is currently on tour for their 2019 JAPAN TOUR HARU organized by Pledis Entertainment & Pledis Japan. The shows will take place from April 2, 2019, in Fukuoka, Shizuoka, Saitama, Chiba and will conclude on April 24 at the “Osaka-jo Hall” in Osaka.
On April 4, after their presentation at the “Marine Messe Fukuoka” venue, a sasaeng fan of SEVENTEEN‘s Woozi snuck into the hotel floor where the members are staying, to place a Chanel gift bag in the doorknob of Woozi’s hotel room.
She uploaded a picture of the bag on her Instagram stories with a text that said “I can’t give this to him at the box at the venue so I put it in front of his room. I chose a fragrance that is close to what Woozi likes, please use it! I attached a letter too”. According to the translation of Twitter user @leejihuwun.
Carats were outraged by what the sasaeng did and demanded Pledis take action on the matter.
Pls help tweet #플레디스_팬클럽_여행_취소해 @pledis_17jp @pledis_17 Pledis shouldn't push thru the Okinawa fanmeet if this sasaeng can easily bypass security and go in front Woozi's room!!!!! https://t.co/e5ImajTwkO

Some of them even asked Pledis to cancel their 3-day Okinawa Fanmeeting Cruise.
A sasaeng left a gift on woozi's room!
This is really alarming, pledis please cancel the trip NOW!

Additionally, they have questioned the security and safety measures Pledis takes with the members of SEVENTEEN.
Literally that woozi sasaeng can fight me and I will end her life, this is a MASSIVE invasion of privacy. What were hotel staff and security doing?!? What are pledis staff and security doing?!? How tf did that bitch manage to get past them all.
