Apink‘s Hayoung discovered and responded to a post shared by a fan who was selling her merchandise.
The fan shared a Tweet that was captioned, “I’m selling Apink Oh Hayoung’s fan. Please DM me.”
Having coincidentally discovered this Tweet, Hayoung responded to the post herself with a comment that read, “Good luck with sales….!!”
The way Hayoung had responded to the post has made many fans assume that she was disappointed and hurt by the fan’s post. The poster quickly responded by explaining that she was only selling the merchandise to buy tickets to her fan meeting.
Unnie I was trying to buy fan meeting tickets last minute……
Seriously, I’m not lying ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
In fact, the fan may have been telling the truth. Apink was scheduled to hold a fan meeting from April 20-21, 2019, at Sejong University. It seems that the fan urgently needed some money to attend the fan meeting and her only option was to sell the merchandise she collected.
Fans hoped that Hayoung was not hurt by this misunderstanding.

“It’s because she wanted to go to your fan meeting…don’t take it the wrong way..!”
Hayoung never responded again, but fans hoped she would understand why the fan had to take such measures.
