According to police officers on July 3, there have been around 8-9 containers worth of EXO fan letters that were mistakenly delivered to Gangnam Police Station, starting at the end of last year until now. A majority of these fan letters were sent from the province areas, including Incheon and Daejeon.
A lot of the fan letters were addressed to members Baekhyun and Chanyeol, and some of the fans have repeatedly mailed letters to the wrong address three or four times.
On the outside of the letters, fans wrote messages such as “I’m an EXO fan but not a sasaeng fan,” and “Please read this.”
A police official said, “We have been returning most of the letters. Fortunately, they are simple letters and not packages, so it does not interfere with our work.”
It appears that this situation arose due to an apparent joke played by a netizen. On one of Korea’s major portal sites, there is a question asking for a way to send fan letters to EXO, and in response, someone posted an answer that states the address of the Gangnam Police Station instead of the SM Entertainment building.
The police official also expressed, “We have not thoroughly looked into it, but if someone purposely spread the wrong address, it could be hurtful to young student [fans], so it needs to be stopped.”
