A bodyguard of K-pop boyband NCT Dream may face charges in South Korea for allegedly pushing and injuring a fan.
According to South Korean news outlet Korea JoongAng Daily, the incident occurred on February 20 at Incheon International Airport. At the time, NCT Dream were returning from an overseas event and fans had reportedly crowded their airport to see the boyband.
On that day, the bodyguard, an unnamed man in his 30s, allegedly pushed a fan and caused them to “hit a wall and break her rib”. Doctors then allegedly told the fan that their injury would take five months to heal.
The fan reportedly filed a complaint to the police against the bodyguard. According to Korea JoongAng Daily, prosecutors are reviewing the possibility of pressing charges.
