Netizens have mixed reactions after seeing BTS‘s Jungkook greeting fans during his overseas schedule.
Recently, Jungkook was spotted at Incheon Airport heading to another overseas schedule. While it wasn’t confirmed where he was going, the idol was seen with a camera, so many fans assumed he would share his travels soon.
On October 17 (local time), a video was posted showing fans waiting outside Jungkook’s hotel. When the idol came out, he greeted them like a gentleman, even giving them a “Prince-like” bow.
Yet, while many fans focused on how sweet Jungkook was being and praised the fans for being so respectful…
Omg! Our beloved Jungkook❤still humble and sweet🥰😍😘 https://t.co/RlAEgLJBi6

It wasn’t surprising that the majority of fans saw problems with the video. In particular, the fact that fans were waiting outside of Jungkook’s hotel was labeled as “sasaeng behavior” was deemed inappropriate, and many couldn’t believe Jungkook was so calm.
What the fuck ??? This is sasaeng behaviour stalking him in front of his hotel and lobby ? Where the fuck is your brain ? Asshole ??? https://t.co/l2tuiGgSne

Jungkook has always been honest about respecting his privacy, and while the idol was happy to greet those waiting, it’s not surprising that ARMYs weren’t happy with the video.
