Amidst the chaos of fans crowding for a glimpse of RIIZE at the airport, Anton displayed remarkable compassionate personality. Instead of being shaken like before, RIIZE Anton decided to take a small action which touched fans’ hearts.
The Chaotic Airport Arrival Happens Again – RIIZE Swarmed at the Airport
RIIZE recently traveled to Paris for the Louis Vuitton fashion show as the new ambassador. At the airport, they encountered challenges due to a dense crowd. Numerous fans gathered at the airport, leading to congestion. To navigate through the crowd, the group required substantial security assistance. The members struggled with limited space as intrusive cameras surrounded them.

RIIZE Anton Showed His “Saint-Like” Character
Member Anton was noted for his compassionate and “saint-like” personality. Despite concerns for his safety, he intervened to prevent a security guard from being overly aggressive with the fans. The guard was forcefully pushing the fans away. Anton, appearing startled yet resolute, took action by grabbing the guard’s arm to restrain him.
Anton worries about how his fans are being pushed around.

Conversely, many fans criticized those who crowded the airport, driven by a desire to see the group. They also expressed anger towards the security guards for handling the situation.
“Although the orderliness at the airport was a mess, if you just ignorantly push the fans away like that, who’s going to be responsible if a secondary accident occurs? Are you going to take measures if another accident occurs?”onyourmark_go

저렇게 무식하게 밀다가 2차 사고라도 나면 지들이 책임질 수 있냐고…
또 사고 일어나고 대책 세울거냐고요 https://t.co/s1sn1YCLSf
Fans Demand SM Entertainment to Beef Up the Security
Previously, RIIZE Anton was also shaken and reportedly close to tears when RIIZE arrived at Gimpo International Airport from Japan. As the group exited the enclosed area, fans immediately swarmed them. Anton appeared particularly overwhelmed by the situation, looking visibly distressed and on the verge of tears.
you just have to be another level of disgusting to continue to mob riize like this when they're so visibly uncomfortable. https://t.co/i44W5OP9dI— koko (@lettertosohee) December 14, 2023
As similar incidents have happened several times, fans demand SM Entertainment to beef up their security.
