Netizens are wondering if Dispatch is drunk or hacked after their latest TikTok posts…

Korean online media outlet Dispatch shared a photo of SEVENTEEN‘s Vernon on their official TikTok account. The photo was of Vernon at the Gimpo International Airport on his way to Japan.

It’s not uncommon for Dispatch to share its photos of K-Pop idols, even on TikTok. So, it seemed normal enough until it appeared that Vernon was being scanned…

Then a heart made out of snowflakes appeared before an edit of Vernon that softened all his features, so it looked digitally painted, appeared, with hearts shooting out from it. They captioned it, “Going to Tokyo.

The video went viral in just six hours, with 117.1K views and 21.7K likes at the time of writing.

It definitely puts one in mind of a fan account… But from the past. It’s not even so common for K-Pop fans to make edits like this these days.

All the edits are made through the free video editor CapCut, which is owned by ByteDance, the same parent company as TikTok. It may be some sort of collaboration or partnership between the companies.

Whatever the reason, it might be a brilliant tactic to go viral as the surprise of each video warrants tons of comments, and that, especially if mixed with negative, guarantees videos go viral on the video-sharing app.
