Following repeated requests by BTS fans to delete the posts, Hash Swan exploded in anger and said "disgusting and sick" to a fans reply that said, "That Hash Swan guy is now going to write lyrics on his next song like "I heard I look like XX". People are only mistaking you for him because you have the same length hair not because you look like Jungkook. So please don't ever write anything remotely close to that in your lyrics."
