TWICE’s Nayeon now under police protection due to obsessive stalker

Nayeon was frightened by how the stalker attempted to approach her multiple times on a plane

TWICE‘s member Nayeon is now under police protection due to an incident happened yesterday (January 1), when the stalker tried to approach Nayeon while boarding a plane in Japan to return to Seoul.

According to JYP Entertainment, they weren’t able to respond to the situation right away, and that the alleged stalker, identified as a German, followed and attempted to approach Nayeon multiple times on the plane, even after being restrained by bodyguards. Nayeon also seemed very anxious and uncomfortable, yet unharmed.

Nayeon posted on TWICE’s official Instagram [now deleted] The post in Korean reads: “Please go back home. Please stop. I beg you.”

An obsessive stalker with the name “Josh” was suggested to be the culprit. According to his series of tweets, he wasn’t a fan of TWICE or anything like that, he just fell in love with Nayeon and he wants to approach her to confess through a love letter that [Josh] wanted to give to Nayeon.

Angry fans [ONCEs] suggested his arrest and deportation.

The label also warned the stalker to halt his actions, but he ignored their warnings and attempted to force his way through, and demonstrated problematic behavior by raising his voice and clashing with security guards.
