I will be able to say anything about Seokjin without being able to be sued for defamation because if they accuse me, I can say I was talking about the character, not the real Seokjin. Well why don't you just sell their names to the antis? You should reconsider this!@BigHitEnt— A☾¹⁰⁹(IA) (@LaLunaJinniie) October 19, 2020
