A personnel of the Manila International Airport has been slammed by fans of Kpop boy group ENHYPEN for her unprofessional behavior in patting down the members and unabashedly showing her glee at being able to touch them.
The video which went viral prompted the trending topic Nakakahiya, and has also been shared by ENGENES (ENHYPEN’s fandom) from different countries.

Some called out her inappropriate behavior and even shared the only times when a pat down is required, given that the travelers have already gone through scanners.

Unprofessional also became a trending topic while MIAA Hear Us had fans calling for sanctions against the staff’s inappropriate behavior.
1. The staff didn't do that to Jay and the manager
2. Sunoo and Jungwon took off their jackets but staff kept touching their bodies
3. There are walkthrough metal detectors and Xray security scanners, isn't that enough?
