BTS is used to being chased by fans, but it seems the Taiwanese press were not quite ready for the mayhem that unfolded when the group landed there on January 8.
While the group was visiting to film the lunar new year episode of “2015 Superstar Red & White Entertainment Awards,” the group caught the attention of local press by the sheer number of fans that followed them around.
The main free-to-air channel Taiwan Television (TTV) reported the phenomenon, focusing on the fans that had camped outside the studio 3 nights prior to the group’s taping of the entertainment show. TTV reported that more than 80 percent of the 12,000 audience members present at the taping on January 9 were fans of the group.

The fact that the group was asked to take part in the lunar new year show was also a big deal, as only the most popular Taiwanese stars appear on the special episode.
