4. Sasaeng fans ruining BTS’s resting time when they went to Chile
Some sasaeng fans seemingly ruined BTS’s resting time when they went to Chile. These sasaeng fans ended up gathering outside BTS’s hotel, and it got to the point where a staff member had to tell them that BTS switched hotels because there were too many sasaeng fans at their previous hotel.
Despite telling them this, the sasaeng fans didn’t budge. The staff member also told the sasaeng fans that BTS just wanted some rest, but the sasaeng fans still wouldn’t move.
The staff member even told them that everything he was saying was a request from the BTS members themselves, but nothing seemed to work.
