The saesang fans strike again!!! And they've set their eyes on GOT7's Youngjae. Now this is definitely not the first time we've seen an incident where crazed fans have engaged in obsessive behavior that threatens an idol's privacy. And it probably won't be the last.
Below is his message he left on his Instagram to the saesang fans. Hello. This is GOT7′s Youngjae. Everyday I gain strength from the love that fans give. However, there are some who take photos and videos at places like the airport or when we are spending personal time. I think we need to be more respectful of each other. (For example, at times when the entire screen of my cellphone is shown.) I’m worried that people following us and continuing to take photos when we are moving to a different location might fall. I would also like for people to be more careful not to disrupt other individuals in public places. I am also very worried about a dangerous situation happening to those who stay until dawn in front of our dormitory and to those who follow us in cars when we are going to a location for individual schedules. I would like to continue meeting each other in a safe and healthy manner. Thank you very much for reading my poor writing. I really love you Ahgases. Let’s continue to stay together for a long time.  >CREDIT<
I can't help but think back to the incidents with Chanyeol from EXO and BTS where their privacy was endangered many times. I just hope that Youngjae's words will get these fans to realize how their actions can affect the idols they love so much. I understand fans getting excited about meeting their favorite idols but when it comes to the point where they have to make a comment, that's when it becomes an issue. We should respect their privacy like we would want our own to be respected. Some people may argue that if I was in the same position I wouldn't be able to control myself or my actions. Correction. I wouldn't. Because I have common sense and morals. I can't say how I would act if I ever met one of my biases because none of us can really say. But I can say that I will at least give them the respect they deserve and not harass them in anyway. The fact that some people can actually do this without any remorse saddens me as a fan. I can only hope that these saesangs fans can quit their immature and inappropriate behavior.

What do you think of the growing issue concerning fans and idol's privacy?? Leave your opinions below.

honestly jyp has got this they have a blacklist going on for people who get the crazy and invade privacy....they can get blacklisted for ever if they don't follow guidelines for safety of the artists....I think all company's shoukd do that
time for restraining orders
all this will end when South Korea pass a law to protect their celebrity's privacy and enforced with a strong punishment as soon as is violated.. it will stop with all those crazy teens that don't respect their lives as human beings..
I didn't know it happened to Youngjae. I'm more disappointed than mad now, why can't idols be left alone? Why get can't they relax without having to worry about their safety. I hope Youngjaes message will get through to these people.
I'm proud to see that youngjae wrote such an adult and professional response to the crazy and inapropriat things happening around him and his fellow idols. paparazzi is one thing to deal with and is easy. it's another situation to deal with crazed fans whom you adore because they support you, but they also make you uncomfortable. and that's a really crappy situation for these boys to be in. I feel badly for them and I hope things settle down soon.
