Big Hit Entertainment Releases Statement About Sasaeng In J-Hope’s Birthday Stream
February 18th was the birthday of BTS’ J-Hope and the idol celebrated it together with fans through a live broadcast.
Some fans, however, noticed a person peeking into the hotel room the members were in and assumed the person was a sasaeng (over-obsessive fans).
ARMYs were outraged after seeing the sasaeng reach the members’ hotel room and demanded that Big Hit improve their security.
Hope had opened the vlive’s live broadcast. While he was streaming, we, BTS’s fans, have noticed that there was a saesang fan who had opened the room’s door. So we are very worried about the safety of our members.
Please strengthen security work.@BigHitEnt @BTS_jp_official pic.twitter.com/tUyyv5s9cW

Big Hit Entertainment has since released a statement clarifying that the woman in the video was a staff member, and that she was not a sasaeng.
After confirming the facts, we found out that (the person) was a staff member. The area is off limits to outisders. We are ver strict on the protection of our artists.
