BigHit Entertainment issued a notice to BTS fans and called on them to observe proper fan etiquette in the future following what it called as 'unpleasant incidents' that have been happening during the BTS Tour in Asia spanning Taiwan, Japan and other countries.

On Twitter, the agency revealed that fans were using the same airlines with BTS and were repeatedly disobeying BigHit staff and security guards who were trying to refrain the fans from talking to or take pictures of the members of the popular boy group.

The fans who boarded the same flights as BTS also kept on attempting to sit next to BTS members and even make physical contact.

"Such attitude of a small number of people can and do cause harm on a lot of people, including BTS members," warned BigHit.

"To prevent such unpleasant incidents and to help BTS successfully finish the tour, Big Hit Entertainment hereby asks all the fans to follow the etiquette and rules mutually agreed among fans around the world," it pleaded to fans.

Below is the full statement from BigHit:
