Apparently, someone made the little Shinto shrine By The Sea and putting up illegal BTS posters and marches just to bring more people to come. Japanese Army have already reported to Big Hit. They’re taking 2000yen to access this place like some attractions by using BTS fame. 🤬 https://t.co/x3W9l6zIN9
