“We just love the boys,” Linda Xiong, a fan from California, explained. “They make us fans go crazy. They are 7 very attractive men.”

Some fans even stayed near Citi Field during a storm just to be in front of the line.
“Tents were flying. You could hear fans screaming because of the thunder and lightning. It was crazy, but we are all motivated and we don’t mind,” one of the fans told the network. “We’re dedicated to them so we’ll do what we have to be front row.”
Fans went wild when one of the members, V, whose real name is Kim Tae-hyung, went live on social media.
