But TOP wasn’t the only one under attack. Although there were fans who supported V’s action to follow TOP, some expressed their anger by criticizing him and saying that if there ever was a collaboration between the two artists, they couldn’t support him.

But why such a reaction? It turns out that TOP’s image in the kpop industry isn’t the “cleanest” according to some given his history of drug scandals.

As a result, many ARMYs have come to V’s defense and have shown anger at fans who criticize him, saying that those who have made negative comments about him are not real fans and do not deserve to be ARMYs. .

The hashtag “#FreeTaehyung” started trending on Twitter.

Unfortunately, interactions between K-pop idols are still sometimes viewed in a negative light. It is to be hoped that the two artists are unaffected by the negative comments directed at them and that their personal choices are respected.
