In an effort to combat the growing number of problems with fan crowding, WINNER’s bodyguards have gone the extra mile.
Fans have spotted the guards traveling in wide circles around the group in order to allow them space to walk and stay safe.

This “inner-cirlce” style helps prevent overzealous fans from getting too close. It’s especially unique given it’s WINNER’s fanclub name, too.
Other group guards have taken this method into account before, back in 2013 B.A.P had a similar event.
BTS’s own fans even worked to prevent other fans from crowding in Mexico earlier in the WINGS Tour.
SEVENTEEN has even had to so so.

Recently, Taeyeon was sexually harassed due to overcrowding at the airport.
GOT&, Wanna One and NCT faced serious safety issues at both Incheon Airport and LAX for KCON.
Overall concern about fan safety has increased, and now measures are being taken.
