“Is it so difficult to say hi?”… Despite having apologized, BTS’s V under controversy for his attitude upon arriving in Korea
As BTS’s V returned from Paris, France, netizens are criticizing his attitude.
On June 28th, V arrived in Korea through the Gimpo Business Aviation Center after attending CELINE’s fashion show in Paris, France. He was supposed to land at 8:55 a.m. KST, but showed up past 12:20 p.m. KST because his flight was delayed.
Min Yoo, Head of VIP celebrities at Celine posted a clip of Taehyung returning to South Korea on her instagram story.

V appeared in a black hoodie, yellow shorts, and comfortable slippers. He got into the car immediately as soon as the door opened, without greeting reporters and fans who were waiting for him.
V’s attitude sparked controversy because it was contrary to that of BLACKPINK’s Lisa and actor Park Bo Gum, who returned to Korea at the same time. This caused disappointment to reporters and fans who were expecting V’s greeting. Both Lisa and Park Bo Gum waved and did heart poses to reporters and fans with bright expressions.
After that, V said on the fan community Weverse, “I’ve arrived” and apologized to the reporters and fans for getting in the car right away.
Although V has apologized, Korean netizens continue to criticize his attitude, leaving comments such as “I feel embarrassed for him”, “Is it so hard to say hello?”, and “The difference in their attitudes is so obvious”.
On the other hand, there were also netizens who defended V, saying, “Are you swearing at him because you feel inferior?”, “V usually greets. He was probably just tired”, and “He can do that if he is tired.”
