To recall, the “King the Land” star graced the 77th Cannes Film Festival red carpet, wearing a Monique Lhuillier mauve pink floor length gown, showing off her flawless beauty.

But as she took the center stage and waved to the crowd for photos, she was interrupted by the security. She was asked to leave the stage, which prevented her from taking another pose.

Based on the videos and photos circulating on social media, YoonA was obviously taken aback by the situation, which left her no other option but to do what the security said.
