Good for them.

That sasaeng shit AJ posted about is fucking wild. I feel like these guys are having such a rough time in America, first the constant comparisons to BTS, then I heard they've experienced some racist bullshit as well. Then their asshole fans offering them money in the street and touching shit on their tour bus??? Jfc

fans offered them money on the street? Like, have some money? or like, take off your shirt, here's some money?

what racist bullshit? I'm not doubting it, I just keep seeing references to experiencing it but what it is.

It was an asshole fan who thought a Twitter meme would translate to real life, as in a "take my money" sort of thing. Sf tacky and awkward for the boys

The post calls it racist but I think they were just a moron who thought they were being funny. There was another post compiling a bunch of other (supposedly) racist stuff that's happened to them while filming in America but I can't find it ugh

thank you for the link. I saw that AJ story too and it was horrific. When I think about the levels of intrusiveness idols must routinely deal with, I don't understand how they don't all have at least panic disorders ....

I don't dive deep into stan stuff online so it's hard for me to know comparatively where idols get it the worst, or if things in America just seem to happen more because it's in English. Not that it matters, cause shitty behavior is shitty, but I am still interested in things they face in different places.

The radio station tagging their pics. BTS without shame was ridiculous. And letting fans on their bus is wild. I know people don't really respect kpop but there's treating people as not that popular and straight on not giving a shit.

I'm excited for their performance because I really like their performances but man I'm so sick and tired of the stupid shit they've had to face.

i feel so sad hearing how busy their schedule is :( esp after hearing those dumb “fans” invading the tour bus. They were so great in phoenix so i feel like crying
