But with the popularity that BTS has gained over the years, it’s a fact that die-hard fans will go to great lengths just to be near their idols.
In a live broadcast on Naver’s livestream service V Live, BTS’ V answered fan questions on December 14, Soompi reported.
Among the things that V talked about in the 37-minute live stream were his newly-permed hair, the countries he would like to visit, and sasaengs—which is defined as obsessive fans who stalk or engage in other behavior that invades the privacy of a Korean idol or public figure.
V shared, “We travel separately on a chartered plane. We also want to take a [regular] plane, but when we have long-distance or short-distance flights, some people find out in advance [which plane] we are taking and sit in the seats in front of us or next to us. In those private spaces, we don't get to relax as much as we want to.”
He continued, “In a place like that, we can’t rest comfortably. It was very uncomfortable. To be frank with you, we don't want you to do that. It's scary.”
