NCT’s Sasaengs Called the Members during Concerts and Live Streams
NCTzens know well enough that sasaengs often called the members during concerts and live streams. There were already many members who went angry because of this incident.
Through NCT Dream’s VLive streams, we can see that Jeno is the member who got the most sasaeng calls. When Jeno live streamed himself with Jaemin, he suddenly got a call from an unknown number. Jaemin, who was also looking at Jeno’s cellphone, just turned off Jeno’s phone, chuckled, and sang randomly.
Seeing Jeno’s sullen face, Renjun believed that it was sasaengs’ act. He suddenly picked up the call and calmly said across the line “Please don’t call him again…” They both also showed the sasaeng’s number at a glance on the stream.
Having the same experience with Jungwoo, Taeyong also expressed the same frustration. He told his viewers that he was really scared with the unknown calls.
On another VLive, Doyoung made a live program called “Room Corner Concerts”, where he can sing live and interact directly to his viewers. In the middle of the song, he got so many spam calls. Realizing that the caller was alleged sasaengs, the main vocalist shouted at them without hesitation. After that, he stopped the call and continued singing.
NCT’s Sasaengs Followed the Members Wherever They Go
Apart from spamming calls during live streams, NCT’s sasaengs also have another “hobby”, which is following the members wherever they go. NCT 127’s and the Dreamies’ Haechan have experienced this incident so many times. In June 2020, a short video from one of the sasaengs showed their conversation with the 127’s maknae. He said that he would report them to the police if they kept following him.
Doyoung is also the 127 member who is often followed by sasaengs. A Pann user (Pann is a fan forum) once revealed one of Doyoung’s bold actions towards his sasaengs. He was seen taking back photos of the stalkers who followed him, by pushing the camera towards the sasaengs without hesitation.
NCT’s Sasaengs Gave Disturbing Comments during the Members’ Live Stream
Not only calling members in the middle of a live stream, sasaengs also often gave disturbing comments to the members during their streams. Most of these comments are trying to sexualize the members, especially the underage members like NCT Dream’s Jisung. Here are some of those comments.
“Show your six-pack abs”
“When will you show your abs?”
“Pull down the zipper”
“Please date me!”
Here is one of their streams where Jisung was sexualized.
Besides Jisung, NCT Dream’s Chenle also received so many sexual comments. Two years ago, the Twitter user went into a rage when a random person confessed that she was Chenle’s sasaeng, and that she had Chenle’s phone number.
She even made a drawing and the term “XOXO” from her blood. Fans believe that through the drawing, the sasaeng wanted to receive hugs and kisses from Chenle. She also said that she loved Chenle so much.
She also said that she would kill herself if she couldn’t meet Chenle and if she got sued by SM Entertainment.
Because of this post, many fans tried to take down her post and report her to SM Entertainment.
IMMEDIATELY REPORT AND THEN BLOCK THE ACCOUNT (BOTH INSTA &TWITTER) This saseng has been harrassing Chenle, don't interact with her, she is not in her right mind and threatened to commit suicide. #protectchenle #smentertainment #smprotectchenle pic.twitter.com/ZHwC65y1Hn

NCT’s Sasaengs were Camping at the Front of NCT’s Members’ Dorm
Sasaengs were also attacked by NCTzens because they were “brave enough” to follow the members all the way to their dorms. Haechan explained his struggles with these “followers”, because they were waiting outside of their dorm and followed them to the dorm.
He then further explained that this happened not only at NCT 127’s dorm but also at NCT Dream’s dorm. NCTzens actually had seen some moments where many sasaengs camped in front of the Dreamies’ dorm.
Haechan also explained that he and other members had apologized to their neighbors so many times because their neighbors kept complaining about those stalkers.
In another VLive broadcast, Taeyong also spoke about the same matter. Same with Haechan, he felt that this situation was really stressful for him. He told NCTzens that they insisted on entering the dorm together with him and other NCT 127’s members. Taeyong also revealed that he and his members felt uncomfortable and insecure, even for just leaving the dorm.
To end their live broadcasts, both Taeyong and Haechan advised their viewers to stop following them and waiting for them at the dorm. They also emphasized that they like to meet their fans, but not in that way. Taeyong even asked his viewers not to love them too much.
NCT’s Sasaengs Took Inappropriate Photos of the Members
NCT’s sasaengs also liked to take photos of the members that shouldn’t be disclosed to the public, and most of them are inappropriate. One of these inappropriate photos is from Haechan. After the police incident, the sasaengs went angry towards Haechan by releasing several photos of Haechan when he was drunk.
Other inappropriate photos also came from Haechan and other Dreamies: Renjun, Jaemin, and Jeno. In these photos, it’s very clear that the four Dreamies doing the middle finger pose.
In June 2021, other sasaeng continued to release another private photo of one of the Dreamies, Jaemin. Through his/her Twitter account, he/she posted several photos of Jaemin doing an online fan meeting. What’s abnormal about his/her post is those photos he/she shared were taken from weird and very close angles.
NCT’s Sasaengs Tried to Touch NCT’s Members’ Body
These last incidents usually happened when NCT members are at the airport. At the airport, many people tried so hard to walk up to the members and touch their members’ body. Luckily, this incident is rare nowadays, because the members’ bodyguards always protect them from those who want to approach the members.
That’s all you need to know about NCT’s sasaengs’ incidents. As an NCTzen, are you mad at the sasaengs for the fuss they’ve made against the members?
