Jungkook is sacared of the sasaengs
As a surprise event for Army, On April 5th (KST), Jungkook did a live broadcast. The youngest of BTS was having a good time sharing TMI (To Much Information) and answering fan questions.
In the middle of the Idol’s streaming, he got a call at his hotel room. He tried to pick up but nobody answered. The telephone kept ringing, every time with the same result. At this point Jungkook thought it was a prank-call.
Eventually, the main vocalist of BTS, showed his concern about it. "I'm getting goosebumps" Just like a horror movie, the sound of the calls were scary, the idol said he didn’t like it. Then, the artist faced the stalker:
Who are you? Don’t do it. I don’t like the ringing sound.
The serious moment obligated the idol to show the phone to the camera. At the end, the staff of the K-Pop band took the phone away to check the calls. Immediately the Army went on the social media to manifest their concern. The phrases “Leave Him Alone” and “sasaeng” were trending on Twitter.
