Viral video capturing paparazzo’s remark about NCT’s Johnny stirs fan outrage

Johnny Suh
  • A video of a paparazzo muttering, “He doesn’t understand a word I’m saying. F*ck,” while trying to get K-pop idol Johnny’s attention went viral on Twitter and TikTok.
  • Johnny was born in Chicago and is fluent in English – a fact he previously had to point out to a reporter in 2019 who told him, “By the way, your English is phenomenal.”
  • The NCT member is the fifth male K-pop idol to attend the Met Gala, joining the ranks of EXO‘s Lay, PSY, Rain and Super Junior‘s Siwon.
  • Johnny teamed up with Vietnamese American designer Peter Do for his three-piece outfit for the pair’s first Met Gala.

A paparazzo’s comment at the Met Gala about Johnny of K-pop boy group NCT has stirred outrage online. 

The photographer can be seen and heard in a video calling out to Johnny, “Johnny Suh, over here! On this side, please!” Unable to get Johnny’s attention, the paparazzo mutters under his breath, “He doesn’t understand a word I’m saying. F*ck.”
