Big lol at that Valentae girl's fanfic story. Entertainment companies make anyone who comes into contact with their idols sign contracts to keep quiet about everything. It's how they avoid scandals.. I've said this on the Ana and Alex thread as well, but I have a friend who has connections in the industry and BTS are untouchable even to other idols so fans definitely have zero chance. Literally zilch. It's sad that there's actually people who are believing this girl's story.
As someone who has followed both Dan and Phil from the very beginning I'm so incredibly happy to see that Dan has finally reached a level where he is comfortable enough in his own skin to talk about an arguably very big part of his life and I'm so excited to see what will happen now. As long as he is happy, I honestly don't care what the content is he puts out. On the other hand I do imagine many of the 'phandom' must be feeling pretty shit right now for invading their personal life to this extent for so long that it's caused Dan this much mental strain...
BTS are untouchable even to other idols let alone fans.. I have a friend with connections in the industry and from what she's told me they're extremely private about literally everything, keep to their own group at award shows etc. They know how big they are and they also know that one fuck up can end their careers. I don't understand how these girls think people will ever believe their bullshit. But then again a lot of fans are young and gullible.
