The Lovelyz fan gave details about how the manager threatened him for glaring. The manager, taking the fan to a restroom, locked the door and placed his hands on the fan's shoulders in a threatening manner. The fact that the manager, after all the misunderstanding was sorted, refrained from apologizing added on to the controversy.
