She managed to not be recognized in public.
On August 16th, Red Velvet’s Yeri shared a selfie and a video taken at the theater on her Instagram story, with the caption, “Going to the cinema alone”. In the update, Yeri was wearing a mask and a hooded top. Except her eyes, Yeri was totally covered so it would have been difficult for her to be recognized in public. Yeri appearing all alone at the theater without makeup caught the attention of many fans.
According to a post she shared on the same day, Yeri went to the theater alone to watch Park Chan Wook’s movie “Decision To Leave”. Yeri praised the movie after watching it. She said, “I just saw ‘Decision To Leave’… It’s just the best…”. She also expressed her admiration to director Park Chan Wook.
