The fan who posted the photos reassured fellow fans that the snaps were posted hours after the K-pop stars left the place.
A couple of Pinoy fans spotted several K-Pop artists namely Sungwoon of Wanna One, Taemin of SHINee, Ravi of Vixx, Timoteo of Hotshot, and Jongin Kai of EXO or collectively known to fans as Padding Squad, while dining out at a branch of a local food chain located at a mall in Cebu.
RV Ong, a Wannable or Wanna One fan, shared photos of the boys which he obtained from an unnamed fan on his Facebook page. It has since went viral on social media including Instagram.
While several fans aired out their concern for the safety of the boys, who might get mobbed once their location goes revealed, Ong reassured fans that the photos just got posted hours after the boys visited the place.
"You don’t need to worry about these previews of Padding Squad in Cebu since these photos were uploaded a few hours after they went to the exact place," he wrote.
Jimin of BTS, who is also part of the Padding Squad circle and noticeably absent, probably wasn't able to join his friends because of his K-pop group’s promotional activities.
