ZEROSEs (ZEROBASEONE’s fandom) expressed their shock with the uploaded photos, and conveyed how uncanny it was seeing the incident.

Read their reactions here:

  •  “No, but this really looks like some uncanny valley content. Poor Zhang Hao.”
  •  “I’m a fan of another K-pop group, but this is just flat-out creepy. Can people cut it down a notch?”
  •  “But why? Why are they doing this?
  •  “So Koreans are doing this too now. It’s not like he’s asking to shoot some I.D photos.”
  •  “How can I even put words on this? It looks like they don’t even treat him like a person, it’s making my skin crawl.”
  •  “Wow, I’d catch mental illness I were in his position.”

Meanwhile, netizens added how much mental strength was needed in order to survive as an idol. They were also amazed with Zhang Hao’s calm reaction over the chaos, given how unnatural it was for someone to have their own personal boundaries breached.

They commented:

  •  “It takes a strong soul to be an idol because I will never have the capability to deal with this kind of stuff.”
  •  “I would get cancelled immediately for telling them to f**k off and leave me alone. These idols are so patient.”
  •  “I’d be pushing people away in a genuine manner.”
  •  “I would literally get looking like Tobey Maguire, like, get out of my face.”
