K-Netizens Defend BTS’ V Regarding The ‘Airport Incident’
K-Netizens are defending BTS member V pretending to record a fan at the airport.
On July 7, BTS safely arrived in Taipei, Taiwan to attend their schedules for ‘SBS Super Concert in Taipei 2018′.
However, it became a total chaos in the said airport, because some of their ‘fans’ tried to get too close with them, and invaded their private space, resulting of BTS getting mobbed.
However, it did not just end there.
A girl followed and started filming BTS’ V. V reciprocated the actions, him pointing his phone to the same girl who has followed him, mimicking the girls’ actions.
Fans are claiming that V didn’t actually filmed the girl, rather, he just pointed his phone towards her. They also added that V had his phone in ‘selca mode’ the whole time.
taehyung making that girl feel what they feel everytime they’re being mobbed and shoved with phones and cameras in their faces @ the airport is my favorite kind of tea today. i don’t even see a slightest bit of rudeness in this at all. you go tae.

This incident resulted a huge buzz in the online community. Some of the netizens criticized his actions, while the others defended him.
ㅇㅇ | Celebrities will give no sh*t if you just stood still and went “Wow~ a celebrity” and took a picture from afar. But when you approach them for closer than 1 meter and shove your camera, you really think that they wouldn’t feel the least invaded? It’s not like V hit her or swore at her, he didn’t do anything that was threatening? If you think that he has short temper, think about your own temper if you were at his place ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He can’t even do anything in situations like that but remain quiet and cry only when he reaches home
ㅇㅇ | This makes me lose hope ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Look at how he crouch down just so they can move ㅠ I can’t understand why people are protecting the sasaeng and swearing at V here
ㅇㅇ | Sasaengs aren’t fans but criminals; isn’t it obvious that we should protect the celebrity instead;;;
ㅇㅇ | Didn’t he make the wise decision at that moment? He didn’t even have any security, and that But-suni
(붙수니 = sticky fans aka fans who literally stick their bodies against you, not sasaengs but they’re notorious)
and those sasaengs were following him right behind, as an idol in this situation, he couldn’t even do anything, so he just put his phone on selca mode and pretended to film her. It’s pitiful to see.. People who are saying that it wasn’t on selca mode, just look at this picture. I’m more shocked at the fact that no security was around him in this kind of situation.
ㅇㅇ | Those Twitter feminists are seriously hopeless ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Their double standards are severe and they just block their eyes and ears. Don’t you know how those foreign female celebrities flick off their paparazzi? ㅠㅠㅜ they get called girl crush, f*cking wise, and they get admired for that…… But when it’s V, he gets sworn at for not respecting the sasaeng’s rights just because he’s a man and he’s doing that towards a women, and if we called her out for being creepy, we get called misogynists
Even a monkey in a zoo has a guard, but what is this.. He gets touched and scratched, there are hundreds of people right in front of his nose taking pictures and threatening him. But when the victim himself puts his phone on selca mode, he’s the one getting sworn at ㅋㅋㅋ V’s human rights are completely being disregarded while the one who’s shoving their cameras in his face is the one being protected??
