Was the schedule in Paris, France too hard for him?
Earlier on June 24th, V left for Paris on a private plane at Gimpo Business Aviation Center (SGBAC) in Gangseo-gu with BLACKPINK’s Lisa and actor Park Bo-gum. Before his departure, V did various poses for fans and reporters who came to see him. He showed off his global star appearance by smiling brightly and making the V-sign in front of the cameras.
4 days later, on June 28th, V returned and arrived in Korea through the same aviation center. The place was once again crowded with reporters and ARMYs from early morning. Arriving at 12:30 p.m, V appeared in a black hoodie, yellow shorts, sunglasses, and slippers. This time, V was so tired after the long flight that he quickly got in the car and left.
Lisa and Park Bo-gum, who also completed the same schedule, did fanservice for fans and greeted the reporters nicely with bright smiles until the end. In the case of V, many people waited 5 hours to see him but he left within a few seconds without a greeting. Naturally, some expressed their regrets.
In the end, V went on fan community Weverse and said, “Reporters. ARMYs. I’m sorry for getting in the car right away. You waited for such a long time, right? I brought you all a present!”. He added a picture of stars that seems to have been taken during his flight to thank and apologize to fans.
Although he later apologized, V inevitably received criticism from the public as the act of bowing is so important in the Kpop industry and some idols got into trouble for not bowing before.
