A Filipino fan got a response–albeit a warning–from K-pop boy band Tomorrow X Together (TXT) member Taehyun over the former’s plan to travel to Seoul to meet him.

On the Weverse fan app, the fan made a post to which Taehyun responded.

In his post, the fan wrote, “I really want to travel to Seoul by bicycle. It must be tiring, but to meet Taehyun,” SBS News reported.

He made the post along with a travel map. However, the map showed that the bicycle route will enter South Korea through North Korea. It was not clear from which country the fan will start his journey.

Border crossing between South and North Korea is prohibited. In 1945, the control of Korea was divided into two. The Republic of Korea, or South Korea, was established in 1948 and the demilitarized zone was established in 1953.

Taehyun commented on the fan’s post and warned him that he will face trouble if he crosses the border between South and North Korea.

“Well, I’m sorry, but you might be in big trouble if you cross over the line that you see above Seoul,” said Taehyun.

After Taehyun made the comment, the fan also wrote, “Hala. My dream. Gabi-gabi ako nagpopost dto. Mahal kita Taehyun. Gabi gabi ako nagpopost hinihintay kita palagi thank you talaga sa pag comment. No. 1 (Oh no. My dream. I post here every night. I love you Taehyun. Every night I post and I always wait for you. Thank you, really, for commenting. No. 1).”

One Facebook user with the name Reymart posted to claim that he is the fan.
