Not A Single Leak: Thai ARMY Earns Praise For Respecting BTS’s Suga
The more famous a K-Pop idol becomes, the harder it is for them to keep upcoming content under wraps. Even BTS themselves have unintentionally dropped spoilers.
Naturally, fans have been on alert for leaks ever since news broke that Suga (also known by his soloist stage name Agust D) would be dropping his debut solo album, D-DAY, on April 21 at 1 PM KST or 12 AM EST.
The music video for Suga’s single “Haegeum” was under lock and key, despite having been filmed on the streets of Bangkok, where some fans could have caught a sneak peek.
In the past, some of BTS’s filming locations–such as the “secret venue” for their virtual America’s Got Talent appearance–have been spoiled by leaked photos, video clips, and word of mouth. Thai ARMYs, however, kept their lips zipped!
Now these fans are earning praise from ARMYs around the globe for not posting spoilers online and for respecting Suga’s privacy.
im so proud of thai armys. yoongi literally filmed his music video on streets but we never got A SINGLE LEAK. not a pic, a vid or even the information. no one knew why he was in thailand. THIS is how you respect the artist.

Yes! My Thai friend said that she saw Yoongi the other day but only confessed to me today. The people there are really respectful and I'm proud of her.

In addition to keeping Suga’s secrets, Thai ARMYs also showed love for the star by streaming his music, significantly impacting his Spotify stats.
