Most of the idols in the K-Pop genre suffer from the actions of the Sasaengs, which are a type of fan who are obsessive, abusive, and are always following and stalking their favorite artists, making them feel unsafe and worried about how far they would go for them.
Between all the famous artists, there is BTS‘ V, who recently suffered strong abuse from a Sasaengs who went into his residency’s elevator with a marriage license application, making the ido have a bad time. For this reason, here we present to you the previous 4 of his most terrifying moments with this type of fan:
1. Chased at the airport: In April 2017, the idol arrived at Gimpo Airport when he suddenly realized he was followed by many fans who were screaming. The way he started running and turning to check the fans was evident; he was really scared.
2. Surrounded by Sasaengs on flights: During a live broadcast from 2019, the BTS member revealed that somehow these fans find their fight information and manage to sit close to him or the other members. “These actions made us feel uncomfortable. I wish they didn’t do it, as it really scares me”.
3. Chile visit: During the 2017 Wings Tour, the BTS members were in Chile, where they were completely harassed and followed by sasaengs everywhere in hotels and restaurants, so much so that they did not have any opportunity to rest during their whole stay in the country.
4. Hair pulling: After a recent event with the Celine brand, V was waving his fans and getting into the car when a sasaeng grabbed and pulled his hair. After the photos and videos were shared on social networks, many shared their shock and disapproval for this aggressive action towards the artist.
please don’t do this ever again. Trying to grab taehyung’s hair is never okay. You can tell he is so happy seeing his fans but keep it respectful 🙏 pic.twitter.com/P2Uw8GxOHH

It is important to highlight that these actions towards any artist are an abject act that could be counted as harassment and could be punished with legal action, as the agency behind BTS has stated before, so it is expected that fans support the idols in a very respectful way.
