One netizen who attended the 'KIAF 2021' VVIP preview event wrote,
"It was so good to see this particular person at the 'KIAF 2021' VVIP preview on October 13, BTS's V (heart). I really know how to recognize people well. In 2019, I ran into RM even though he was wearing a mask and a hat, and I greeted him. Today, it's V~
Me: 'Hello, can I get a picture with you?'
V: 'I'm sorry. I've already heard this about 50 times today.'
Me: 'You live in Samsung-dong, right! I live in that neighborhood too.'
V: 'Is that so. We might run into each other at the neighborhood convenience store then.'
There are so many convenience stores in our neighborhood tho... isn't he such a jokester..."
