When many think of idols, they would automatically assume that they would be surrounded by a posse all the time. From managers to staff, one would think that idols definitely need to go around with at least a manager to prevent unexpected mishaps from occurring. However, this then leads to the misconception that idols cannot ever leave the house without a staff following them.
BTS‘s RM shared that this was one of the surprising biases people have towards idols that he wants to break.

Wherever I go, people always say like, did you come without a manager? How come you’re around without a manager? It’s dangerous outside! IT’s not a bad thing but people just have a bias towards singers, that we cannot do anything well alone. But I think it’s possible to be a star that can do things well on their own. I think it would be good to show people that such a star exists.
We think that RM is already doing his best to put this into action. Just recently, as the boys were given a long break, RM visited art museums by himself in Texas.
While he of course, got a guided tour tailored for him, it’s great to see that he’s out and about without having to worry about staff, a manager or fans.
