(G)I-DLE’s Shuhua is angry at the face attack on the talkative water bomb
Shuhua, a member of the group (G)I-DLE, expressed anger over being attacked with a water gun on her face at “Water Bomb Seoul 2022.”
On the 26th, Shuhua hosted a live broadcast on (G)I-DLE’s official Naver V Live channel and said, “I have something to say.”
Shuhua said, “I just came back from Water Bomb and I didn’t know I was doing this in the water. I was so surprised,” he said.
“Who sprays water on your face like that?” Who said that? “I was wearing contact lenses, so I opened my eyes while avoiding water, but I couldn’t see it. I couldn’t see anyone for about 30 seconds,” he recalled of the Waterbomb stage.
And you said, “I told you to stop. Do you think it makes sense? Didn’t I tell you to be gentle? I told you to go easy, but why?” he said angrily, “I saw all the people who shot with their faces. Let’s not meet on the street,” he warned.
Earlier, the (G)I-DLE, to which Shuhua belongs, attended “Water Bomb Seoul 2022” held at Jamsil Stadium in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 26th and performed the hit song “TOMBOY” and other stages.
After Shuhua expressed her anger at the water gun attack, a video showing the audience shooting water guns at the members of the (G)I-DLE was released through various community sites. In particular, Shuhua floundered to avoid water when the audience shot water guns with her face while dancing, and eventually turned her back. Nevertheless, the audience continued to shoot water guns.
(G)I-DLE leader So-yeon also asked, “You can shoot everything, but don’t shoot only in the eyes.” when the audience shot the water gun while performing the stage.
Meanwhile, “Water Bomb” is a water festival where artists and audiences team up to enjoy music while fighting over water. However, water festivals such as “Water Bomb” have recently become a subject of controversy for excessive use of water while suffering from severe droughts nationwide. In addition, there were voices of concern about the spread of COVID-19 infection in relation to the hosting of the water festival. In this regard, the quarantine authorities said, “Since water-wet masks increase the risk of bacterial reproduction, appropriate measures such as mask replacement are needed,” adding, “If possible, we ask you not to proceed with the festival in the form of spraying water.”
However, organizers such as “Water Bomb” and “Psy Dipping Show” paid for the use of water, and many responded that it was inappropriate to try to regulate only the performance industry while large amounts of water are already being consumed in water parks and swimming pools.
As it is the “Water Bomb” festival held after three years of public debate, it is recommended that no further controversy over the performance occurs except for concerns over excessive water use and COVID-19 infection. However, the performing artist complained of discomfort due to excessive water gun attacks from the audience. I think there should be a time when you don’t follow the basic etiquette of watching a concert
