An SM Entertainment employee, one of EXO's managerial staff has received a fine after he allegedly assaulted a fan at the airport.
On August 19, 2014 at the Incheon International Airport, the EXO fan in question was trying to take a photo of the boys when the 34-year old manager stopped her. According to reports, the manager slapped her on the head causing her to hit her head on her camera. She also suffered from neck injuries and was treated in the hospital for two weeks.
The manager denied the accusations, telling the court, “I did not assault her or inflict any type of injury on her,” despite admitting to seeing her. However, the court decided against him and he was fined a million won (approx. $1170).
