A group of young fans are receiving a lot of backlash from netizems after releasing footage of themselves on NCT 127's tour bus without the permission of the group. The boys are currently on tour in the United States and are traveling to different venues via tour bus which is likely like their mobile home away from home while on the road. That personal space was invaded by these fans who not only entered the bus by touched the groups stuff and beds. According to one of the fans the bus driver let them in.
The original video has been removed, but not before news of the matter spread. One of the fans posted about the video and their actions on Twitter:
"Okay I would like to clear things up. No, I did not break into the bus or bribe the driver. He let us in. I didn't post this for clout or attention. I just wanted to thank the bus driver for the magnificent opportunity. I'm sorry if I upset anyone. I did not mean to invade their privacy or try to be weird. I just wanted to share this really cool experience. I should have thought before posting it. I didn't realize, I was just excited. I'm sorry for this. I didn't mean to hurt anyone."
Despite apologizing to fans and NCT 127 themselves, the fan posted again asking "who's tour bus should i break into next??" Despite this probably being a joke many have found this to be in very poor taste.
What do you think about this incident? Do you think these fans should be treated the same way that sasaeng fans are in Korea? Or do you think they didn't weren't aware that they were taking things too far?
