1. [+253, -28] I heard from someone who works for events like this and they said that it costs 100 million won to invite Wanna One. When the rest of us are leaving the house at 7 to get on the hell subway so we can get our self esteems crushed by our bosses at work to still get paid less than these kids at one fan meeting, do you think we really care about them getting their cheeks pinched once? There's nothing 'tough' about their job. They should be grateful they can even work like this.

2. [+151, -10] It's the same for male idols. Fans need to really stop with the uncomfortable skinship for both female and male idols.

3. [+122, -13] Didn't they expect this when they became idols? They already make unimaginable amounts of money once they make it... What job in the world isn't 'tough'?

4. [+21, -0] Go work a normal job if you can't take it

5. [+18, -0] What's a little cheek pinch when you have the opportunity to make enough money to own your own building in your twenties

6. [+16, -0] It's not like they're selling their bodies. Their fans are their ATMs, what's a little cheek pinch? ㅋㅋ Is this a joke? How are we supposed to feel bad for them when they make such easy money? If anything, I'm jealous.

7. [+15, -0] They should not be complaining about a bit of a cheek pinch when these fans are spending all sorts of money for them to even be holding these fan signings..;; They're 'customers' who've spent hundreds on them..

8. [+15, -2] Male idols suffer the same too. They have to do whatever their orc looking fans ask them to do and hug them and everything. Although yeah, I do admit female idols have to smile a lot more.

9. [+11, -1] Just shut up. You all make way too much money to be complaining about this.

10. [+10, -1] There are people who suffer accidents and die at their jobs, people who work in environments so terrible... that's what you call 'tough', not this.

11. [+10, -17] Wow, the comments are shocking. Why should celebrities have to deal with such treatment just because they make a lot of money? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ None of this is fan service, it's personal greed. If they really like their idol, a hand shake and a hug should suffice. Why would you make them suck on a pacifier and pinch their cheeks? ㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+9, -0] Would you rather get your cheeks pinched and make 100 million won a day or work to the bones under tons of stress for 10 years to save 100 million won?
