The photo in question shows what appeared to be a hotel bedroom. On the bed, we see a remote and a condom sachet.
As the remote control is from the South Korean brand IPTV Company, the photo is speculated to have been taken in South Korea. At the bottom of the picture, by the bed, a woman's foot is visible.
Many who saw the photo assumed that it was just the social media handler who made the blunder as fans are aware that BTS does not have control over their official Instagram account.
For that reason, netizens said they felt embarrassed on behalf of whoever posted the suggestive photo.
Other internet users hoped the staff member did not feel too bad for their mistake, as it is normal for employees to have slip-ups while working. Some simply laughed it off and did not take the photo too seriously.
When asked about the situation, an official from HYBE Labels told South Korean media outlet Wikitree that they would look into the details concerning the Instagram Story posted.
