A fan said, “People bullied him on Instagram till the point he changed what he posted. It's so sad because he only told us to listen his MV but people commented weird things so he changed it ~ He always tries to read what our fandom write to him so we think he read those comments!” And added, “He's the sweetest person. He always asks how we are doing, "Make sure to eat your meals" "Sleep well" "I love you" Even when he's extremely busy or tired, he comes to say sweet words to us~ He's not just a body~ Respect WONHO Respect Lee Hoseok!”
