Jeon So-yeon of (G)I-DLE asked everyone not to attack her face with water guns at “Waterbomb Seoul 2022.”
On Jun 26th, (G)I-DLE participated in the “Waterbomb Seoul 2022” festival held at the Jamsil Stadium. On this day, (G)I-DLE performed their hit songs “Tomboy” and “My Bag” to heat up the festive mood.
During the performance, (G)I-DLE enjoyed the festival by using a large water gun installed onstage aiming toward the audience.
However, some (G)I-DLE members, including Jeon So-yeon, were unable to open their eyes properly due to the continuous water flow aimed toward their faces. In the end, Jeon So-yeon said, “You can shoot everything, but don’t shoot my eyes. I want to see my fans,” she politely asked.
Shuhua of (G)I-DLE, who went on V LIVE after finishing the “Waterbomb Seoul 2022” schedule, also drew attention by mentioning the water gun story. As soon as Shuhua started the livestream, she said, “I have something to say. I just came back from the Waterbomb and I didn’t know the water would be like that. I was so surprised.”
She continued, “Who said that? I really couldn’t see anything. I tried to avoid the water because I wore contact lenses, I opened my eyes but I couldn’t see anything. I couldn’t see anyone for about 30 seconds. Didn’t I tell you to stop? Do you think this makes sense?” she shouted angrily.
Netizens responded in various ways, saying “Why are you guys shooting at their faces when you are already told not to do it?” “There is a problem with them purposely aiming and shooting,” and “It can’t be helped because it’s a waterbomb event.”
Meanwhile, (G)I-DLE recently successfully finished their first concert “2022 (G)I-DLE WORLD TOUR [JUST ME ()I-DLE]” in Seoul.
Starting with Seoul, (G)I-DLE will perform in a total of 16 regions, including LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, and Houston.
