K-pop idol group EXO’s manager was slapped with a fine on Wednesday for inflicting bodily harm on a fan who snapped photos of the stars at the airport.

The unnamed manager was fined 1 million Korean won for hitting a fan in the back of the head in August as EXO was returning from a concert in Nanjing.

The fan reportedly suffered from a neck injury that took two weeks to heal.

The manager, 34, had denied all charges, saying that he recalled seeing the victim but had never hit them.
