Videos were taken earlier

At the time, several NCT members were in Los Angeles for KCON LA 2023, and many netizens feared that the sasaeng had broken into their rooms there. However, the sasaeng later explained that the videos had been taken several months ago. They said that they had accessed the room through a keycard. They also claimed it had been given to them by NCT members.

NCT fans later determined that the videos were taken in January 2023 when the group was in Chicago. They determined this from a shot of NCT member Jaehyun’s pyjamas. Its distinct pattern was seen in other videos shared by NCT members during their trip. The sasaeng was also known to be following the group at the time.
