BTS’ V Asks Stalker Fans to Stop Following Them: “It’s really scary.”
When you’re a globally known staff like BTS, it method you’re going to have a large number of devoted fanatics. Sometimes too devoted. It’s why BTS’ V referred to as out stalker fanatics the day before today, explaining that those saseang—which means “private life”—intruders can on occasion take issues somewhat bit too a ways. Somebody wanted to say the laborious fact, and 23-year-old V in spite of everything made up our minds to.
V, whose actual title is Kim Taehyung, took the chance to deal with fanatics all over his fresh VLIVE broadcast. Thanks to VLIVE’s respectable translation, we all know what Taehyung mentioned all over the livestream—and it contained some sudden but fair confessions about superfans. “I should say this on our team’s behalf,” he started, “You know how we get on planes by ourselves? We fly on a charter flight.” Taehyung is referencing the truth that BTS now fly privately—however its due to a daunting reason why.
“We actually want to fly on a regular flight,” he persisted. “But when we travel long distance or short distance, fans may know beforehand that we will be boarding and sit next to us, or in front of us.” That wouldn’t be so dangerous if other people in reality saved their distance; however, after all, that’s now not how fandoms have a tendency to paintings.
“There are those fans,” he added, prior to explicitly outlining why those types of fanatics are problematic. “In those private spaces, we don’t get to relax as much as we want to. So we were a bit uncomfortable. [And] to be frank with you, we don’t want you to do that. […] It’s really scary.”
The flight scenario that Taehyung used for example indisputably isn’t the one example of stalking or coping with sasaengs that BTS—or let on my own different Ok-pop teams—have handled previously. BTS’ Jungkook as soon as addressed sasaengs all over a VLIVE broadcast himself after the fan referred to as in. “This is a call from a fan. It’s saying ‘You’re doing a V-Live and I just called to check.’ What I do is, I immediately blocked the call. I actually get a lot of calls from sasaeng fans,” he reportedly stated on the time.
If you like BTS, then you could have to know that one of the best ways to display your reinforce is to admire the fellows—particularly when it comes to their house and privateness. Now you’ve best heard it from V and Jungkook your self.
