Published Categorized as Kpop

The Philippines Office For Transportation Security has issued an initial statement addressing the viral video of what ENHYPEN had been through in Manila’s airport.

ENHYPEN recently departed from the airport back to Korea, and during their airport screening, chaos erupted and videos of the situation went viral causing anger among fans.

In one viral video that has amassed over 1 million views on Twitter, the airport staff can be seen hovering around the boys as they go through screening, people with official badges from the airport gathered around to snap photos of the idols crowding the area.

The person who was responsible for ensuring necessary security procedures was seen giggling, and smiling as she carried out a pat-down on the boys and asked them to lower their masks. Fans say such procedures are unnecessary as they must follow COVID-19 protocols and patting down was not one of them.

Since the situation escalated and various videos went viral, the Office For Transportation Security took to Facebook to issue a statement addressing the matter, they wrote,

It has come to the attention of the Office for Transportation Security (OTS) that there is a video circulating on social media, showing that airport Security Screening Officers allegedly exhibited unprofessional behavior and the unwarranted filming during the conduct of security screening procedures on a group of departing Korean artists at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
The management is currently investigating the matter to determine the extent of violation committed based on existing rules and security screening protocols if any, and impose appropriate administrative sanctions, should it be necessary.
While we understand the excitement brought about by the presence of these Korean artists, we remind not only our personnel, but all airport users, that unauthorized filming at our security screening checkpoints is not allowed as a matter of policy.
Rest assured that the OTS shall never tolerate any unprofessional behavior towards the riding public.

Here is the viral video below!

Stay tuned for more updates on the situation!
