Teen Top’s Niel says, “Please stop the crank calls”
Niel, a member of the boy group Teen Top, spoke candidly of his difficulties caused by crank calls. On May 8, he tweeted, “Hello, everyone. I’ve experienced something embarrassing recently. I understand how much you love me and I really appreciate that, but I want you to stop calling me directly, especially late at night.”
He continued his plea for fans to refrain from calling, saying, “To those who make such crank calls, please stop doing that. I’ve been so embarrassed that I don’t know how to say. I know you’re my fans who love me, so I’m asking you not to do that again, please!”
He also added, “I didn’t know how to express myself yesterday. I’m sorry to most of my fans, who haven’t made crank calls. I tweeted because I was so upset. Please stop calling! I deeply appreciate your affection toward me, but I ask you once again.”
Netizens who heard the news showed their support, saying: “Change your phone number.” “You don’t need to be polite to those people. Just do not answer calls from numbers you do not know.”
Recently, Niel has drawn public attention when it was revealed that he got a proposal from a girl from JYP Entertainment.
