EXO’s Sehun Admits That He Gets Up To 100 Phone Calls From Stalkers Every Day
As fans we are all guilty of wanting to keep up with our favourite celebrities or idols, but one should NEVER cross the line and turn to stalking because not only is it invasive and illegal, it’s also troubling for your idols. Just take it from K-pop singer Oh Sehun from popular boyband EXO.
The 27-year-old singer was recently hosting an Instagram Live session with his fans when his video was suddenly cut off. Sehun returned to the livestream moments later, only to urge fans to stop calling him.
This led to speculation that his livestream was interrupted due to a phone call from possible stalkers. And true enough, Sehun confirmed this and explained that he no longer bothers to change his phone number anymore because the stalkers will still find a way to get ahold of it.
“Please, don’t call. I really get around 100 calls a day, but I purposefully don’t change my number. It’s because I still get calls when I change my number. That’s even more bothersome, so I don’t change it,” said Sehun, according to translations by Soompi.
Since his scary revelation, fans of Sehun have taken to Twitter to condemn the behaviour of these “sasaeng” fans, who are known as obsessive fans who stalk and invade the privacy of an idol in South Korean culture.
overly-obsessive “fans”? no no, sasaengs do not count as fans. as fans in general respect an idol’s privacy while sasaengs obviously do not. — kyoong (@kkaebsonggg07) May 11, 2021
Sadly, this isn’t even the first time Sehun had to put up with sasaeng fans as the singer had already posted a strongly-worded message on Instagram back in 2014 to try to warn stalkers against hacking into his online accounts.

His caption reads: “This is the first and last time I will say this. Why is it that I receive so many text messages every single day when I haven’t done anything? Messages saying authorisation number, password change, logged in with a different IP (address). If you continue this ridiculous behaviour, I will not stay put.”
