Fans believed that HYBE had allegedly mistreated BTS V, especially during his solo projects and activities in 2022. Check out what really happened and the complete reasons why fans started protesting about HYBE’s mistreatment to BTS V during his solo projects and activities.
HYBE Has Been Allegedly Mistreating BTS V During Solo Projects and Activities 2022
The year 2022 has been magnificent and highly memorable for the Kpop megastar, BTS, and their loyal soulmates, ARMY. Following the announcement of solo projects 2022, all BTS members have the opportunity of exploring the activities on which they want to focus more, including BTS V.
During the past months of 2022, BTS V has been incredibly active in his solo projects and activities. A few months ago, V started his 2022 BTS solo projects by attending the CELINE Paris Fashion Show activities with Park Bo Gum and BLACKPINK Lisa. Then, he also invited his Wooga Squad in exciting solo projects, “IN THE SOOP: Friendcation”. Finally, the most recent intriguing solo activities of BTS V are his VOGUE editorial and attending the VIP Premiere of the movie “Broker”.
Still, despite his exciting solo projects and activities during 2022, fans believe BTS V has not received enough promotion from his own agency, HYBE. It seems that during all his exciting schedules, the only publication he received was simply from online media and fans.
So, what are the reasons for this accusation? Here are fans’ complete explanations about what happened behind HYBE’s alleged mistreatment to BTS V.
What Really Happened to BTS V: The COMPLETE Reasons for HYBE’s Alleged Mistreatment During Solo Projects & Activities
1. No Documentation and Video Footage of BTS V Solo Projects and Activities
First and foremost, the reason behind HYBE’s alleged mistreatment to BTS V is because they had provided NO exposure and documentation about his solo projects and activities in 2022.
If you visit BTS Official YouTube account, BANGTANTV, you will understand what really happened behind this accusation on HYBE regarding BTS V. That is because BANGTANTV has uploaded various documentation and exposure for almost all solo activities of other BTS members, but not V.
Fans are extremely upset and started calling out HYBE to give more exposure to BTS V solo projects.

2. Lack of Protection and Security During Airport Arrival
Secondly, there were also concerns about the lack of protection and security for BTS V during his airport arrival. These concerns refer to what happened to BTS V arrival during solo activities at JFK and Incheon Airports.
At the time, large crowds continued approaching BTS V, showing their intense excitement for BTS V first solo activities. Still, what happened was that the crowd got too big that it looked like they had mobbed BTS V. A fan even got too close to V and touched the idol. Thankfully, a security guard immediately pushed the fan away.
But even in that moment, BTS V showed his gentle personality and ensured the guard didn’t hurt the fan.
In a video shared by Dispatch, V was making his way out of airport when chaos ensued.— KTH HYPE (@kthhype_ttg8) September 1, 2022
An excited fan came too close to V & his security guard elbowed the person in an attempt to safeguard V. V quickly noticed this & subtly held his security man back, despite being mobbed.#BTSV https://t.co/XIAClUvu38 pic.twitter.com/oB5ZrekWlO

3. Nonexistent Defense Against Malicious Rumors and Gossips
Finally, the last but most severe reason behind HYBE’s mistreatment to BTS V is how the company provided nonexistent defense against malicious rumors and gossip.
After BTS’s dazzling performance at the 2022 GRAMMY Awards, various rumors surrounded BTS V regarding his skit with Olivia Rodrigo and the picture of him smoking. Indeed, it was supposed to be no problem and no issue. However, while these rumors elevated V’s popularity, they also affected the idol’s image due to various gossip circulating on media outlets and social media platforms. But still, HYBE did nothing to defend and protect BTS V at the time.
On top of everything, the most alarming issue with HYBE is about BTS V and his dating rumor with BLACKPINK Jennie.
While it is perfectly the idols’ private matters regarding the relationship itself, the company’s obligation is to protect their artists from malicious rumors and security breaches. The leaked photos of V and Jennie—despite being edited or not—are a severe invasion of privacy issue. And HYBE had neither denied nor confirmed the matter. They did nothing to protect BTS V from the malicious comments.

Fans Demand MORE Respect from HYBE
Finally, after what happened with all the alleged mistreatment to BTS V, fans demanded HYBE respect the idol more. They believed that even though BTS V was seen as the hidden member of BTS during his early debut, he is now one of the most popular artists in the global entertainment industry.
BTS V popularity extends not only in music but also fashion, filming, and broadcasting. And fans demanded that HYBE respects BTS V and his reputation by giving him more exposure on his 2022 solo projects and activities as well as sufficient defense against malicious rumors and gossip.

I never brought this up until now because I feared people would assume that I was being biased but I won't stay silent anymore. I can't.— 𝒯𝒾𝒻𝒻𝒶𝓃𝓎⁷ 🕊 (@Tiffy_Russell) September 6, 2018
I wanna start off by saying, that I love & respect Bighit & Bang PD Nim. I really do, but I HATE their behavior towards Taehyung.
