BTS is one of the hottest groups around and unfortunately that can come with some major drawbacks. One of the biggest drawbacks to being so popular is having sasaeng fans who are willing to go any length to satisfy their obsession with their idols.
The boy group has had plenty of scary run-ins with sasaengs in the past. From being mobbed at the airport…
To being chased down the streets, but fans are extremely worried about a recent incident that took place up in the air.
ARMYs have recently been stunned to find out that sasaengs boarded the same flight as BTS and were quick to disembark from the airplane as soon as they landed to catch sight of the members once more.
The original post of the incident was said to have been uploaded by a Big Hit Entertainment employee who was sitting in the economy section of the plane and witnessed the whole event.

Luckily, BTS were said to be in a completely different section of the plane.
While it hasn’t been confirmed that these are indeed sasaengs and not just weary travelers desperate to get off the plane, many netizens are saying that the footage points directly to the typical behavior displayed by these extreme individuals.
Fans are convinced they are sasaengs. They are not happy that this happened and have been calling them out for their behavior.
One of Bighit staff posted this on their Instagram story showing how many saesang are on the same flight as BTS They are running to the exist bc business and first class get off the plane first This is disgusting behaviour leave BTS alone pic.twitter.com/RHy8c3fMsu

I love bts as much as the next person but I wouldn’t even go as far as trying to be in the same plane as them. What kind of sasaeng behavior is that? Like y’all don’t have a life? 💀Your oppars aren’t gonna fall in love with you; move on.

And have even been rallying to raise funds for a private jet so something like this doesn’t happen in the future.
I honestly just want to raise money to get BTS a private jet just so they don’t have to fly with these saesangs anymore. For gods sale, give them privacy and respect them. I love them too and want to meet them, but purchasing a plane ticket and following them to another state is

If yall are planning to gift bts the private plane, tell me where to donate and how? Because im doing this right now if its possible. I cant see my boys being surrounded by sasaengs like this.

Who wants to collect funds to buy BTS a private plane and hire more bodyguards?

All this talk has, in turn, sparked the conversation about idols’ safety. Last year, the same thing happened to Wanna One…
While earlier this week, EXO-Ls pointed out any manner of bad things could have happened to EXO when they found out the members had been riding in the economy section of the airplane.

jebdjsbs why are some people making it about class it’s the fact that jongin’s over here sharing packaged peanuts with a girl that’s tried to steal his underwear last week

At its core having EXO in economy on a plane from Taiwan to Korea (2 places where they have many fans) is a safety/privacy issue??? Like ofc they deserve business class for their success but they shouldn’t be put so close to people who may not respect their privacy/space…wtf SM

And although BTS were sitting in a different section of the plane than these sasaengs, ARMYs are now picking up the conversation too.
