The government agency issued a statement hours after the supporters of K-pop boy band vented their rage on social media against Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 employees for their treatment of the ENHYPEN members as they went through security screening.

Videos that are making the rounds on social media show an unnamed female employee conducting a body search on the members of the K-pop boy group while clearly giggling. Fans said that the incident went against MIAA no-contact security policies, which stated that pat downs should only be performed in “exceptional cases.”

Other videos showed airport employees filming the members of the group, which fans pointed out was against the etiquette rules published by ENHYPEN’s management company BELIFT LAB, which indicated that recording at airport security checkpoints was not permitted.

Here’s the official statement of OTS:

Meanwhile, ENHYPEN is a South Korean boy band composed of seven members: Heeseung, Jay, Jake, Sunghoon, Sunoo, Jungwon, and Ni-ki. The group is formed by Belift Lab, a joint venture between CJ ENM and Hybe Corporation, through the 2020 survival competition show I-Land.

It was on February 3-5, 2023 when the group known for their hits “FEVER,” “Drunk-Dazed,” and “Polaroid Love” held their first world tour “Manifesto” in Manila. Their concert took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
