Commotion Over False Alarm of Armed Disorder on Line 9... Due to Fans Screaming at BTS Suga's Tattoo


It was found that the commotion caused by false reports of an armed disturbance on Seoul's subway Line 9 occurred when fans who were watching a live broadcast of BTS member Suga screamed, causing startled citizens to evacuate quickly.

According to the police and fire departments, around 8:36 PM on the 6th, about 20 reports were received from passengers on the express train to Gimpo Airport, stating "a strange smell", "people running and falling", and "there's a rioter in the station". Police and firefighters were promptly dispatched to the scene. After evacuating passengers and inspecting the train's interior and surroundings, no gas leak or armed disorder was found.

When the train stopped at Sinnonhyeon Station, frightened passengers quickly ran out, and seven people were reported to have suffered minor injuries from falling on stairs and the like.

While the exact reason for the passengers' panic was not clear, unconfirmed rumors of biochemical terrorism and armed disorder spread on social media. However, eyewitnesses who were at the scene posted online, revealing that the commotion was caused by fans returning home after attending BTS member Suga's concert.

Some fans returning from Suga's solo concert held in Songpa-gu, Seoul, at the K-Sports Dome, screamed together while watching Suga's live broadcast on social media. Other passengers who were unaware of the situation mistook this for an incident, causing a fleeing situation.

Online, a video capturing the incident was released, showing that some fans on the subway screamed in excitement when Suga revealed his shoulder tattoo during the live broadcast. The subway car was packed with passengers at the time.

One netizen who claimed to have been at the scene said, "It wasn't a knife attack at Sinnonhyeon Station or biochemical terrorism, so please stop creating a climate of fear with false information. Foreigners beside me screamed while watching the video, and people misunderstood and ran away because the subway was crowded. I have already given my statement to the police."

Upon learning the cause of the commotion, netizens criticized, "What a nuisance this is," "Why scream in a public place?" "Let's be careful in these sensitive times," "Irresponsible fans will cause unnecessary criticism for other ARMYs."
