BTS' Jimin talked about the recent death threat made against him.

At a press conference held in Seoul on May 24 for BTS' Love Yourself: Tear album, the BTS member was asked about the anonymous death threats made against him online.

Referring to a similar incident from last year, Jimin said: "After the incident last year, it was my second time hearing this kind of news, so I was a bit flustered. But I think that the fans were more worried than I was. Personally, there were so many people waiting for me that I didn't have the time or energy to be swayed by such words".

He also said: "Our staff take good care of us, so I don't think that there's any need for our fans to worry".

BTS will be showcasing their Korean comeback globally on Mnet on May 24.
