On April 22, LE SSERAFIM arrived back in Korea after their successful performances at Coachella 2024.

Yet, while netizens waited for the members on the live broadcast, many were surprised to see a small man surrounded by bodyguards.


Netizens quickly realized that the man was the controversial leader of the religious “cult” Shincheonji, Lee Man Hee.

The group has had many controversies, whether it is accusations of exerting influence on politicians and political parties, actively infiltrating other churches to convert other churches’ members, and also links to the breakout of COVID-19 in Korea.
