During fan interactions at airports, a video of TH8 surfaced online, where fans moved in on the idol’s personal space and tried to record his personal information from his passport and joked about exposing it to the public. To this, TH8 reacted and pointed a finger towards the fans which garnered negative remarks from netizens.
