Sasaengs Caught Following TREASURE on Camera During Filming of 'Treasure Map'
Back on July 30, YG Entertainment's boy group, TREASURE, uploaded on their official Youtube channel a new episode of "Treasure Map," which features the 12 members of the group traveling to Jeju Island.
Their trip to Jeju Island was meant for the members to have a relaxing and healing time ahead of their first anniversary since their debut. In fact, they went to an uninhabited island to ensure their privacy and avoid disruptions during the filming.
However, what caught the attention of viewers in multiple instances is the fact that TREASURE and their staff were being followed by sasaengs - obsessive fans who stalk celebrities - throughout the entire filming of the episode.

In several instances, more than 10 sasaengs can be seen crowding around TREASURE as they board the boat to head to their location. Not only that, but the sasaeng fans also rented their own boats to follow the group to the uninhabited island where they would be spending their time.
The editors of "Treasure Map" also highlighted the appearance of the sasaeng fans, showings multiple scenes which included them, along with captions in the video that says: "Following TREASURE while noise of shutters greet them," and "There's a boat who wants a peek... Two more offshore."
