If you're a true K-pop fan, don't ever do this.

One thing that K-pop fans love to do is wait at airports in anticipation for when their favourite groups touch down. Generally speaking, flight details for K-pop stars is considered private information thus it is not revealed to fans. But for some over-zealous sasaengs, they have reportedly found a way to get their hands on the flight details of all their favourite stars.

JTBC tested this supposed way out by messaging a Twitter account that could supposedly provide this information, and after paying a reported 30,000 won for flight information and 20,000 won for seat information, the reporter received all the flight details of a K-pop star in less than an hour. It is reported that since information regarded seats is being sold, the people behind these leaks are airline insiders.

While the leaking of this information is a big issue, the bigger problem is that this information can be used to target important political figures.
