A baby’s appearance in NMIXX’s concert in Seattle raises concerns from fans

First of all, why? Second, why? And third, BAKET TIH?!

K-Pop fans are seriously on a whole other level. Like, some are literally parents who are bringing their kids along to concerts already.

After NMIXX’s “Nice to MIXX You” showcase tour in Seattle, a fan’s video became viral after it was seen that an NSWER (NMIXX fandom name) placed their baby on-stage. In the video, Kyujin was seen gently picking the baby up and returning him to their mother without any hesitation, although she may just be as panicked as everyone else watching the video.

NSWERs and other K-pop fans were absolutely gagged by the viral video and began questioning the entirety of it. Fans that witnessed the whole scene also came on Twitter to voice out their reactions, and honestly? Same.

Fans did a little more digging into the “NSWER parent giving baby to NMIXX” situation and found out that the same person is also a STAY (Stray Kids fan) and did the same thing with Stray Kids.

Honestly, there are lots of things to unpack from this situation. One, how was the baby even allowed inside the concert venue? In the first place, concerts should be one of the places babies shouldn’t even be seen in. That shouldn’t even be questioned because of course, it’s always going to be loud in a concert.

Two, couldn’t the mother leave their child with a relative while they went to the concert? Like, we get it, the mother might be a single mother and all. But how could she just endanger her child by bringing them along to a concert instead of leaving him home with someone she trusts?

Three, a K-Pop idol handing your baby back to you isn’t supposed to be an “OMG GOALS” moment. That, in itself, should make you question whether or not you’re fit to be a parent, to be honest. Heck, your fave might even be the one judging you for doing exactly that. Interacting with your favorite idol is one thing, and them handing back your child is another.

And to think that the NMIXX member that “interacted” with the baby is also the youngest in the group. Quite uh…questionable, no?

The good side is the baby is safe. The bad side…well…that whole thing.
