Meanwhile, fans came in defense of Saerom. A fan explained in the comment section saying, "People are so easy to jump to conclusions without knowing the full story and the context. What our leader said might sound really bad if not taken into context but seeing how they were laughing and joking around before she said that, it might not be like what you guys think it is. Either way, it is okay for idols to be tired and vocal about it. They are humans too and like everyone, they also have those kind of days."
