South Korean K-pop mega band BTS's live appearance on a Japanese television show was nixed Friday after one member went viral for wearing an atomic bomb T-shirt celebrating Korea's liberation from Japan after World War II.
"The T-shirt that one of the members wore made headlines and became controversial".
BTS would be coming on the show to chat with the show's hosts and sing the Japanese version of their song "Fake Love", as well as "Idol", as promised by a promo Music Station aired at the end of its November 2 episode.
Despite the controversy over the top, some Japanese fans expressed disappointment that the BTS performance had been cancelled. Despite IZ*ONE's successful debut stage on KBS's ' Music Bank' last week, some netizens are still petitioning the girl group's promotions on the station; the government petition demanding a ban on IZ*ONE from appearing on public broadcast station programs now has approximately 30,000 signatures. We, as a program, wanted to ask him his mentality in wearing it.
The top reads: "Patriotism OurHistory Liberation Korea", and features a photo of the mushroom cloud over Hiroshima and another picture of the Korean people celebrating their Independence Day on 15 August 1945.
The bombings led to Japan's surrender and the end of World War Two in Asia- as well as the end of Japan's colonial rule of the Korean peninsula which begin in 1910.
There are conflicting reports about whether band member Jimin wore the shirt this past August or previous year to celebrate Korea's Liberation Day, but either way it's the imagery of the attire that's become the issue.
Many have pointed out that while the controversy over the t-shirt design has been mentioned, another reason for the postponement may be the increasingly deteriorating relations between Japan and South Korea. Either way, BTS has been bumped from the guest list, and considering that Music Station has made the unusual (for the Japanese entertainment industry) move of specifically citing the T-shirt, as opposed to using one of the platitudes such as "due to various circumstances" that are often used by Japanese media organizations, BTS might be out of the program's good graces for some time to come.
