With fans voicing out their concerns regarding the possible invasion of the group’s privacy, the issue quickly made rounds on the internet, and even Japanese news outlets reported about it.

This prompted the group’s agency BigHit Entertainment to investigate the incident and released a statement regarding the findings right after.

“After checking the broadcast, we have confirmed that the person in the back was one of our staff members. They’re staying in a place where outsiders cannot have access, and we are doing our utmost best regarding the protection of our artists,” the agency stated.
