A Korea Railroad employee who looked up the booking information and personal data, including the address and mobile phone number of BTS member RM, from the KORAIL system is now subject to disciplinary action. In response to the news, RM used the emoji for polite embarrassment, which is a pair of smiling eyes with a semicolon.
The railway company claimed that after learning of a report that an IT employee had checked RM’s booking information and seen him in person, it conducted an internal investigation.
According to reports, the employee, a fan of RM, said he did it out of curiosity.
Additionally, it was discovered that the worker looked up the personal data of a male KORAIL worker who gained notoriety after appearing on a television program.
The employee has been fired by KORAIL, and disciplinary action is being considered. The business also claimed that it had modified the system so that now, in order to view anyone’s personal information, an employee would need to justify their request.
RM, who is also well-known for being an enthusiastic art collector and frequently posts pictures of himself riding the train to visit art galleries, shared a screenshot of the news on his Instagram along with a single emoticon expressing his polite embarrassment.
