FFC-Acrush recently performed at a concert in Zhejang and was a part of the "Husband Exhibition" sensation. Among Chinese fans, most especially women, the word "husband" is mostly associated with male pop sensations and bands.
In an interview with Quartz, Acrush's manager said that instead of being termed "husbands" by female fans, he would rather that they be called "handsome youths" to dispel any gender association.
Furthermore, the members of the group are said to have been forbidden from discussing their real sexual preference with people, most especially to the Chinese media.
