It looks like fans were upset with Ailee for being on her phone during SHINee’s performance at the Seoul Music Awards, and she just made a post on her Instagram to both apologize and give her side of the story of the incident. She posted a photo with a caption which read, "I'm so sorry for being on my phone during SHINee sunbaenim's performance. But as soon as I opened the app, I was the first one to type 'SHINee' but the performance had already ended. I really support SHINee sunbaenims. - written by a timid girl."
The app that Ailee is referring to is the banner that you can choose on your phone, as she was attempting to hold up her phone showing SHINee’s name on the screen to show her support, but it turns out that the performance ended before she had the time to properly display the banner. What do you think about this?
