aespa Members Revealed MORE Personality Facts After Getting Mobbed at Incheon Airport
On the other hand, life is not always sunshine and rainbow for the promising 4th gen queens. Amidst the shining achievement aespa reached with their first-day album sales for “Girls”, they had to experience uncomfortable situations during their trip home.
On July 10, aespa was seen arriving at the Incheon Airport upon completing their schedules for UN speech and GMA concert. During this time, a massive crowd gathered at the airport, waiting for the girls to arrive.
And as aespa members appeared, the gathering crowd became even more uncontrollable. While Karina and Winter seemed to have successfully passed them safe and sound, the wild crowd had apparently harmed one of aespa members, Giselle.

What Really Happened?
While nobody witnessed what had happened during aespa arrival, one of the fans’ cameras caught Giselle limping towards the airport exit.
Giselle seemed to have a hard time making her way back from the arrival gate, especially with the people in the crowd pushing her from both sides.
giselle was limping?!?? is she okay… pic.twitter.com/9LHxnO7qhp— —𝒎. (@aespanim) July 10, 2022
This incident is one of the many examples of the privacy issues aespa discussed in “SM Culture Universe” Ep 2. The lack of privacy and personal space resulted in many Kpop idols being prone to more harm when a massive crowd gathered without giving them some personal space. A similar mobbing case previously happened to Stray Kids Felix and Han.
This angers me so much I’m honestly so disgusted with the airport mobbing that happened to stray kids, hyunjin is being aggressively pushed around and Felix tripped then pushed into the door and han got pushed onto the floor hurting his arm.. wtf is wrong with these “fans” pic.twitter.com/igL27TYZEJ— 『𝓢🤍』 (@chaeunnwooo) June 20, 2022

While Giselle was having a hard time walking towards the exit, it was when more personality facts from aespa members came to light. And this time, it was aespa maknae and main vocalist Ningning who came to rescue her eonnie.
Without hesitation, aespa Ningning immediately wrapped her arms around Giselle to provide support and protect her from the wild crowd. Thanks to Ningning, Giselle had a chance to walk more safely toward the airport exit.

MORE aespa Members Personality Facts: Giselle Kept on Smiling and Accepting Fans’ Letter Despite Limping
And finally, more impressive personality facts came from aespa Giselle herself. Despite her limping and difficulties reaching the airport exit, Gisele kept smiling at the fans and reporters.
Moreover, when a fan greeted her and asked her to be careful, Giselle took her time to turn around and answer the fan’s calling. She then greeted other fans and even accepted their letters one by one. These heartwarming personality facts happened while she was limping and seemingly holding back her pain.
And all the time, Ningning was beside her, helping Giselle with her challenging situation.
With this terrible incident, aespa members have once again revealed their kindest and truest personality facts to the public.
