Sure confetti cannons can be great and create some pretty cool effects but sometimes they’re idols’ worst enemies. Besides the confetti pieces themselves, the blast from the cannons can cause some serious havoc too like giving a scare to the performing idols.

Having been a victim of the confetti cannon before, ITZY‘s Chaeryeong was determined to defeat her nemesis once and for all and did so with a little bit of preparation and a shower of confetti!
