[Pann] Eric Nam being inappropriately touched on broadcast

Pann: The icon of sexual harassment is a male celebrity

Eric Nam has suffered countless moments of sexual harassment on TV but just because he's a male being harassed by a female, everyone either laughs it off or producers don't even bother to edit it out.

In the first instance, a woman pretends to kiss him over the lips with a tissue in between but pulls the tissue out last second and kisses him on the lips without permission or warning.

In the second instance, the crowd of women demand that he tell them about his first sexual experience and touch him inappropriate (sticking her head up his shirt).

This third instance is self explanatory based on the caps.


1. [+212, -1] This is straight up sexual harassment. Maybe they think Eric Nam's so innocent that he won't say anything about it but they always do this to him and I feel so bad.

2. [+201, -1] I feel bad for him ㅡㅡ I heard him talking on radio and heard he came over from America and didn't even have his first kiss until he was over 20 years old with someone he really loved. Why's he being treated like this on broadcast all the time ㅡㅡ

3. [+199, -1] I saw the actual episode for the first set of caps and Eric Nam handled it well, asking her why she is doing this when she's his mother's age... but it was really surprising to me even as a viewer. Jun Hyun Moo was horrified too. Eric Nam's known to be such a good person and it makes me sick to see someone use his lack of broadcast experience like this.

4. [+61, -0] Eric Nam's charming... maybe because he looks so nice and easy that they think they can treat him like this.. I feel bad for him ㅠ

5. [+58, -0] They're lucky he's so nice and innocent. Can you imagine if any of this happened to a female celebrity? Sexual harassment against males needs to be seen as just as big of an issue as sexual harassment against women. And that ajumma who kissed Eric Nam should put herself in his shoes and see how she feels when some grandpa forcefully kisses her on the lips ㅡㅡ

6. [+54, -0] It's quite obvious they're taking their sexual desires out on him;;;

7. [+45, -0] This makes me so uncomfortable. I've always been a fan of him whenever I see him interviewing foreign celebrities and he's a good singer too and such a nice person.. Amazing how he doesn't even cringe when things like this happen to him.

8. [+39, -0] They really shouldn't use his innocence to touch him inappropriately like that
