BTS's Appearance On Japanese Show "Music Station" Postponed

TV Asahi cancels performance of K-pop group BTS over A-bomb shirt

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. "A t-shirt design worn by a [BTS] member caused a controversy", it stated.

The garment also showed words like "Patriotism", "Our History", "Liberation" and "Korea".

BTS apologised for the cancellation but made no reference to the T-shirt.

"BTS's appearance scheduled for the 9th has been cancelled", TV Asahi said in a statement.

Recently, a controversy arose over photos of BTS member Jimin wearing a t-shirt commemorating the day that Korea was liberated from Japanese colonial rule in 1945.

It is unclear when exactly Jimin wore the shirt in question, but pictures of him in it started circulating online in October.

Defenders of BTS and Jimin claimed that the shirt wasn't disrespectful to the Japanese people, and was simply a celebration of the defeat of the Japanese empire and the resulting independence of Korea.

World War II remains a tense subject between South Korea and Japan.

Japan, meanwhile, became the only nation to have experienced a nuclear attack when the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagaski killing an estimated 200,000-plus people at the end of WWII.

Now, after BTS's incident with "Music Station", these netizens are more aggravated than ever regarding IZ*ONE's ongoing, active promotions in Korea.

"A-bomb T-shirt" was one of the top trending topics on Twitter this morning. "Jimin don't blame yourself", said one Twitter user.

TV Asahi posted a comment on its website, saying, "Unfortunately, we made a decision not to feature BTS on the program at this time based on our comprehensive decision".

However, Tokyo maintains the issue of compensation has been settled under an agreement attached to a treaty that was signed in 1965, calling the ruling "unbelievable".
