BTS V’s privacy was almost compromised after HYBE staff tried to do it

BTS V made it safely back to South Korea after a trip to Paris, leaving fans puzzled about what the country’s schedule is.

Earlier this month, the BTS member surprised everyone when he arrived at Incheon International Airport and was spotted in Paris a few hours later. HYBE did not reveal the details of his trip or mention where he was going then.

The lack of details, however, protected the K-pop idol. But a recent post revealed that its security and privacy were almost compromised by HYBE staff.

The news site said it waited until V left Paris before revealing the plan, saying a staff member – who was with him on his trip – had asked for $350 in exchange for confidential information about his whereabouts.

“Please do this to demand Taehyung’s protection and the prosecution of these malicious acts that threatened his safety! This precious member of BTS has received it several times this year through no fault of his own. Selling information about his schedule is literally putting his life at risk!”

ARMYs constantly criticized the company as V’s security could be very much at risk if the information was sold to other people.
