GOT7 has one of the most dedicated (and largest) fanbases in K-pop at the moment, but the recent actions of some have caused a bit of concern to the boys.
In a new Instagram post from Mark, the GOT7 member spoke out against those who recently invaded the group's privacy by following them to their dorm. Having recently arrived back in Korea after a fan meet, Mark noticed that some cars were following the group back to their dorm from the airport, some of which were dangerously close. He requested that fans refrain from following the group as this is an invasion of privacy, writing that it will be hard to greet fans with a welcoming heart due to incidents like these.
Here's a translation of Mark's Instagram post:
“Hello, this is Mark! We returned to Korea after a fan meeting, and it has been raining a lot yesterday and today. To be honest, it didn’t feel great when we were going back to our dorm after arriving at the airport.”
“It rained yesterday so it was dark and the roads were slippery, but there were people rushing to follow us in cars, so I thought a dangerous situation might occur. I felt even less comfortable as I saw those cars follow us to our dorm.
As the dorm is our personal space, I wish our privacy could be respected. It gives us strength and happiness to see our Ahgases that always support us, but it makes us uncomfortable if we meet at a private space like our dorm, and it will be difficult for us to greet you joyfully.
We ask for your understanding. Thank you.”
