Everyone knows that managers can be idols' best friends, but they can also be quite nightmarish at times. Maybe a bit dramatic, but it's common knowledge that they are strict and watch over their idols' every moves, usually making sure they are following a diet and all the rules. There have even been cases of them becoming violent toward fans. However, have you seen them becoming violent toward the idols themselves?
Currently, a clip from BTS's recently dropped season greetings video is causing an uproar on the cyber-sphere, mostly by K-netizens so far. In the short clip seen in the Vine below, you can see the manager raising a hand as if to hit Jungkook, who noticeably flinches at the movement. This has caused the netizens to stand up and demand an answer for what's going on.
Koreans have gone to the boys' Instagram to write, "To go so far as this to your singers when we never even asked you to make a season greeting. Apologize to your singers and please quickly upload a feedback regarding the improvement of labor conditions. Make the content detailed. (don't apologize using members, don't say it was a joke or misunderstanding and that they're like family)," "Why are the kids holding the luggage, and why are the higher-ups not holding the luggage and why are they raising their hands at the kids ^^?" and, "A manager is there to protect the kids, yet why are they threatening them and making them hold all the bags?"
What are your thoughts?
