Popular Korean group SS501 arrived from Taiwan to HongKong 2 nights ago, attracting 500 fans at the airport to see their idols. Members Kim HyunJoong, Kim HyungJoon, Kim KyuJong, Park JungMin and Heo YoungSaeng appeared at the arrival hall at 10.30pm. Even though the company already arranged more than 10 security guards to maintain the order, but the enthusiastic fans still get into their way. When the 5 of them came out of the arrival gates, the enthusiastic fans closed in immediately, some of them even went into the restricted area, while others got a bird’s eye view by standing on the escalator. For their safety, the airport authorities stopped the 2 escalators near the arrival gate immediately. There are fans who fell and some pushed the security guards, the situation is chaotic. Some fans spontaneously shouted for everyone to calm down, but is not much efficient.

SS501 were stuck inside the crowd, not being able to move anywhere, however they did not forget to still wave to their fans and allow them to take photos. The security guards tried to open the path for them but to no avail. At this moment, someone suddenly pulled Park JungMin to run towards the staff passageway, though he has successfully ran out from ‘danger’, Park JungMin’s unglamorous and funny moment was caught on TV! The other 4 members had to wait at a shop nearby the arrival hall. They waited for about 30mins before finally being able to get on to their car to leave for the hotel. When they arrive at the hotel, there are about 3~4 cars following them, and some fans attempted to give a huge soft toy as a gift to their idols.
