Displaying your love for your favorite artist is all good and well...that is until you step over some boundaries.

It seems that some ARMYs, in their eagerness and fervor to be close to their favorite group, forcibly imposed themselves by breaching BTS's privacy and personal space. 

A picture of Jimin at the airport in Taiwan shows that the crowd shoved and pushed too vigorously in their excitement, which led the idol to trip and fall. SUGA and Jin also almost fell from all the milling from fans who were eager for a closer look at BTS. 

The actions of these ARMYs was enough to compel BigHit to post an official notice on Twitter, requesting fans to follow etiquette, watch out for their own and the boys' safety, and also respect BTS for the people they are.

Take a look at the full notice below.

"[NOTICE] BigHit Entertainment notice regarding the BTS Tour in Asia

BigHit Entertainment would like to share our regrets over the recent incidents when some fans showed their affection for BTS in a wrong manner. Such attitude of a small number of people can and do cause harm on a lot of people, including BTS members.

BTS is participating in '2016 BTS LIVE [The Most Beautiful Moment in Life on stage: epilogue] tour for countries such as Taiwan, Japan and so on. Some fans… 

-used the same airlines with BTS on purpose and kept trying to talk to BTS or taking pictures of the members, despite restraints by BigHit staff and security guards. 

- tried to sit next to BTS members on board,

- attempted to get a hold of BTS members by making physical contacts and etc.

BigHit Entertainment takes safety of BTS and fans as number one priority and does its best to secure the safety of BTS members by allocating as many security guards as possible on site. We also politely ask fans to stay safe and to follow the fan etiquettes. 

If any of the incidents on the above list happens, BTS and fans will be affected directly. It will also damage the image and future activities of BTS very seriously. To prevent such unpleasant incidents and to help BTS successfully finish the tour, Big Hit Entertainment hereby asks all the fans to follow the etiquette and rules mutually agreed among fans around the world.

BTS and BigHit Entertainment are always grateful for your love and support.

Thank you for your kind cooperation and understanding.

From BigHit Entertainment"

It seems that those crazy fans haven't heard about personal space and respect. Even tho they are celebrities it doesn't mean that you can treat them as some trash. Those crazy sasaengs dragging whole BTS fandom down.

they're rising stars so for sure they're going to have crazy fans. the fans should just control themselves, it's self discipline for goodness' sake but  just because there are obsessed armys doesn't mean you have to give up especially if you're just a normal/quiet army. i'll be forever an army even if the fandom sucks for antis or for some people. you don't give up on the people you look up to just because of some fans. damn. lol >_<

Wow - it sucks that this has happened to them - but can I just say how good BigHit is at managing BTS? They really take interest in looking after these boys successfully - despite some public backlash they receive from KNetz. They are always usually on top of releasing statements when necessary and even revealing their protocol when it comes to their safety. They really seem to have their act together as a label (at least concerning THIS group) and it would be great to see other entertainment companies follow suit. You go, BigHit.
