Sasaengs on the rise

It's funny how you would expect the amount of sasaengbum to decrease thanks to all the coverage they have been received. It is a known fact there are many who have been laying low and hiding out waiting for the coals to cool before going back to their normal stalking habits. However there are many who knowing that no actions will be taken and counting on the lack of punishment from their law enforcement agencies they continue their celebrity hunt. Recently I have seen articles talking about a newly popular boyband know as EXO(Exo is divided into 2 groups Exo K & M one in Korea one in China) one which here is a link that talks about Chinese fans of Exo M being sasaengs and mentions one thing we have not spoken much about male sasaengs.

Male sasaengs don't seem to be as common and the ones I have heard about personally well I cannot say if they were sasaengs or simply anti's fans of one group who liked certain female groups. I have seen photos of some of these males having knifes and have heard that some males rape females who belong to other fandoms which I personally think is ridiculous because I love so many groups but I would be seen supporting super juniors flag if I were to go to a concert because they are the first group I came to love and the one that I know the most about and probably view as my favourite group.I love other groups all the same but I would have the blue also because it's my favourite color.

I will now copy something a friend of mine shared in relation to Exo M's fans
Part of this can be read in the link above which also shows a photo someone took of the dorm .

There is one fan recently posted at baidu tieba, saying that she/he has become a sasaeng fans for a few days, with three other girls which are the head of the sasaeng fans in China. The three girls started to follow Exo-m car on 1st of April, and when Exo-m got back to Beijing on 9th of April, the three girls have followed them back to their dorm. The three girls have the card of their apartment so they could easily sneak into their place. There is also a sasaeng guy fan everynight waiting outside of Exo-m dorm. The three girls are all Uni student. They are tend to skip uni and follow Exo-m all day.

All of them would use Weibo to show off the conversation between them and Exo-m, although it is just some normal conversation, but they would exaggerated the conversation. They all would wait outside of Exo-m dorm, company and rent car to follow Exo-m everywhere they go. On 10th of April, the three girls follow Exo-m to the Sina Interview place and get chase by police dog.

When they saw Exo-m members, they would keep asking personal questions such as, how many girlfriends you have before and why Kris always change your name. They asked Tao how many girlfriend he had before and some of them had went to Luhan resident area. The manager is very angry about the fans. Last Saturday, the few sasaeng fans never go home but stay outside of their dorm and shout members’ name very loudly. They always want to give members present, buy food for them and become their friends and they would call their bias: husband.

Recently, the three girls are less active than the guy fans. The chubby guy fan is more active and has been following exo-m everywhere they go. The manager has warned him many times, saying if you like Exo-m, then you shouldn’t do something that would harm them.

Among the three girls, one is Chen’s fan, one is Lay’s fan, and another is Tao’s fan. They seems to be the twins of Exo-m (which means wherever you see exo-m you will see the three girls). They also know a reporter so they would easily know Exo-m schedule and where they stay. Few days ago, they have been caught by the security guard of the dorm and cried in the security office.
The day Exo-m record FengYunBang and Youku they all hide inside of the garage and waiting for Exo-m. The manager is very sick of them so let Exo-m to go from the backdoor so they would not meet the sasaeng fans.

The fan who posted this in Baidu has regretted about her action previously as a Sasaeng fan and has decided not to do this again. But for the other sasaeng fans that she knows, have been keep denying that they are sasaeng at Weibo and their ID are all exposed. The fan hope the sasaeng fan could stop the action and give some freedom to Exo-m

EXO-M almost got into a car accident because these sasaeng fans hired taxi drivers to follow the EXO-M van.
