Choi Siwon of popular idol group Super Junior prevented what could have been a major accident.
The singer along with the rest of his Super Junior members stepped onto the red carpet for the first annual ‘Gaon Chart K-POP Awards‘ on February 22nd.
Hundreds of Korean fans as well as a large throng of fans from China, Japan, Hong Kong, and more arrived hours prior to the event to try and catch a glimpse of their favorite Hallyu stars.
Once Choi Siwon’s photo op with Super Junior came to an end, he approached the fans who were fervently cheering his name.
Seeing this, the fans began running closer towards him, causing the safety fence to start leaning over. At that moment, Choi Siwon threw himself at the fence faster than the security guards at the event to prevent the fence from collapsing under the fans.
It could have been a situation where a lot of the fans could’ve gotten hurt, and the fans who were touched by his manners began cheering ‘Super Junior’ to express their gratitude.
Also at the ‘Gaon Chart K-pop Awards’ were B2ST, Secret, Wonder Girls, Girls’ Day, IU, A-Pink,Huh Gak, Kim Bo Kyung, Davichi, B1A4, Kim Yoo Jung, Lee Sae Eun, Yoo Ria, and more.
