Fans who attempted to kiss BTS’s Jin have been reported to the police.

On June 14, Seoul Songpa Police Station confirmed that they had received a complaint through the National Petition System regarding a potential violation of the Sexual Violence Punishment Act.

A police official stated, “We received the complaint through the National Petition System, but we have not received a formal complaint. We have not booked the suspect yet,” and added that they will review whether to proceed with a formal investigation based on the details of the complaint.

Earlier this day, a BTS fan (referred to as A) revealed on an online fan community that they had reported individuals who attempted to kiss Jin during a recent hug event to the Seoul Songpa Police Station. A stated, “I reported a violation of Article 11 of the Sexual Violence Punishment Act, ‘molestation in a crowded place,’ through the National Petition System.”

The previous day on June 13, Jin conducted an in-person event for this year’s “BTS FESTA,” where he greeted fans and offered hugs (or handshakes) to 1000 fans following his military discharge.

While most fans interacted with Jin respectfully, a few attempted to kiss him. Photos and videos capturing these moments show Jin appearing flustered and quickly turning his face away.
