This fool who calls himself a leader of the same group is acting like a fool talking about a ‘meat shield,’ LOL. He never apologized,  and even then, Bae Jinyoung’s fans were told they were doing too much, right?

If I’m with Jinyoung, then I’ll survive until the end because there is a ‘meat shield’ right next to me.
