Popular South Korean performer DJ Soda has said she felt "shocked and scared" after she was openly groped by audience members during a music event over the weekend in Japan, adding that she had "never ever experienced anything like this" in a decade of performing.

The renowned DJ and model, who has more than 5 million Instagram followers, took to social media platforms to slam unidentified individuals, including a woman, who she said touched and grabbed her breasts when she descended the stage to interact with fans at a music festival in Sennan, Osaka Prefecture.

"I'm so embarrassed and humiliated that I can't believe this incident has happened," she wrote Monday, adding that it will likely "be hard to get close to the fans from the stage" from now on.
