San E has become a target of extreme criticism on various online community boards after a recent performance of him alongside Red Velvet’s Irene had gone viral. Although San E felt his performance was charming, viewers immediately noticed just how uncomfortable Irene appeared and it is becoming a hot topic.

During the ‘Ansan Friendship Super Show,’ a program dedicated to celebrating the good-natured relationship between South Korea and Vietnam, rapper San E, Red Velvet’s Irene and GOT7’s Jackson were special MCs for the event. While waiting for the program to begin, a fan-cam captured a rather odd interaction between Irene and San E that viewers deemed inappropriate. View the unsettling clip down below.
