In the midst of all the recent celebrity bullying scandals, a past story about an Afreeca TV BJ (broadcasting jockey) who revealed that BTS’s V was his ‘service boy’ in school has resurfaced online.
The story takes place back in July of 2015 when an Afreeca TV BJ revealed during a live stream that he attended the same elementary school as V.
Hearing this, many viewers asked him if he was close with him in the chat. His response was totally unexpected.
I don’t make friends with ba**ards like that? Ok? I am a little jealous of him now but I wasn’t friends with him, we were more of a food chain relationship. We aren’t friends so stop trying to say that we are, we’re not. Yeah we were a food chain relationship. Man I should have just become a trainee. F*차 if I just practiced like crazy for a few years I would have been better off than that bas*ard. Now I just have to hear things like this and get cursed at by hyungs after starting this Afreeca TV live stream…my heart really hurts. It looks like BTS is starting to gain popularity again? Tahyung you really succeeded haven’t you. You used to do be our ‘snack shuttle’ and now you’re more successful than me.

After this incident blew up, the BJ posted an apology video online for his actions four years later in 2019. The video has since been privated.
I heard the story about V’s past birthday party incident and I want to inform you that that was not me. The reason why I am posting this video is due to my past live stream from 2015 where I said some harsh things to BTS’s V. I understand my mistake and am truly regretting it and am reflecting and will continue to reflect on my actions. The stories about the snack shuttle and the birthday party are being spread online. Firstly, the snack shuttle was not something that I directly requested from V. I am truly sorry for my mistakes and even though it has been four years since that live stream, I still live with regret and reflection.
