1Z Entertainment, a talent company owned and managed by SB19 members, called for respect and privacy after some fans allegedly stalked the members and camped outside their office.

In a statement posted by the label on April 17 on social media, they stated that they value the connection between their artists and their fans, and they appreciate the support fans have been giving them. They then asked fans to respect their privacy.

“We encourage you, our dedicated fans, to express your admiration in positive and respectful ways," the statement read. “This includes refraining from behavior such as stalking, unauthorized photography or recording, or attempting to access private information about our artists."

“Our artists eagerly anticipate engaging with you at upcoming events. Thank you for your understanding and continued support," the label continued.

1Z Entertainment’s statement comes after photos and videos of fans staying outside their office circulated online. The said campers hoped to interact with SB19.

Others were also seen to be going through the boy group's trash in search of the cups used by their idols.

A'Tins react

After the statement was released, some fans—commonly known as A’tin—called out and reminded their fellow SB19 lovers to respect and not invade their idols’ privacy. 

“Aside from SB19, please also refrain from invading the privacy of their staff, friends, and family. Also, please know that being in a public area does not mean you are entitled to cross personal boundaries. Every person has a personal space regardless of where they are," one user said.

The mother of SB19 member Josh replied to the posted statement on X with: “Respect begets respect, guys. Let's all have respect for one another. Please know your limits, as this is also a reflection of our boys' influence on the fandom. Let's be good and kind, as we BELIEVE this is the POWER of the A'TIN fandom. "

“SB19 has ALWAYS in ALL WAYS created a space for us fans to be connected to them. Na abot kamay natin sila. Lagi nila ginagawa yan kahit di events, they see to it that the connection stays, kahit puyat o pagod they make time to interact with us kahit through livestreams kasi we are very very important sa kanila. Sobrang swerte and privileged natin as fans na ganyan sila sa totoo lang. They have always been good to us, I hope we learn to be respectful in ALL WAYS din. Too much of everything is poison. Let’s learn the difference between being passionate and being obsessive. Touch some grass," another user wrote.

On April 14, Ppop Group SB19 announced that their two-day PAGTATAG Finale concert, happening on May 18 and 19 at the Araneta Coliseum was sold out.
