Popular South Korean girl band NewJeans recently hit headlines, courting a lot of controversy about shooting for a project on the streets in Taipei, Taiwan. A couple of pictures and videos of the group surfaced on the internet showing them filming on the streets. While the pictures instantly went viral, an alleged staff member was also seen commenting on the related posts, asking fans to take down the pictures of the “secret project.”

However, this didn’t go well with a lot of NewJeans fans, who were seen calling out the staff for their behavior. Besides that, many eyewitnesses also made similar claims against the staff. “NewJeans came to Taiwan for shooting, but they didn’t have the proper permits for road closures. They only had a temporary permit, but then the staff assessed passersby,” a user wrote.

This has sparked a heated debate on social media, leaving loyal fans hurt and adding criticism against NewJeans and its staff. Accusations of improper permits for road closures were also leveled against them.
