IVE allegedly ignores Stray Kids Bang Chan’s greetings at Music Bank Paris 

Netizens believe IVE was the idol group that Bang Chan mentioned on livestream.

On May 15th, Stray Kids Bang Chan was starting his regular “Chan’s Room” livestream to interact with fans. In the session, the male idol recalled memories of the Music Bank in Paris that took place in April. Notably, Bang Chan publicly voiced his opinions about an alleged discourteous behavior of a new-generation idol. Specifically, he shared that he was greeting a group but they did not greet him back. This led Bang Chan to feel disappointed in present-day idols that they did not consider greetings as basic courtesies.  

Moreover, the idol also indirectly referred to the colleagues in question to have no connections to him: “I’m not going to say names, but I guess some people that I don’t know, I guess it’s like that. Maybe that could be the reason why because there’s no connection. Maybe, they could’ve been shy or nervous”.

However, on May 16th, IVE fans uploaded a clip to dispel the circulating rumors. From the video, it seems the girl group was busy waving to their fans they did not notice Bang Chan greeting them. However, IVE Yujin did notice him and was about to exchange greetings. Yet, he ran off too quickly.
