Big Hit Entertainment Under Heavy Criticism From Fans For ‘Selling BTS Out To A Misogynistic Japanese Producer’
It seems that Big Hit Entertainment may not have made the best move recently. Well, at least South Korean ARMY believes so.
Just recently, some South Korean ARMY were in protest, claiming that Big Hit Entertainment was selling BTS out to a ‘misogynistic’ and ‘war-criminal loving right wing Japanese’ producer. These protests have been surfacing after the announcement of Akimoto Yasushi producing BTS’s upcoming Japanese comeback single ‘Bird’.
Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang SiHyuk himself has also been gaining a significant amount of criticism from South Korean ARMY as well, as it was revealed that the CEO is a long-time admirer of the Japanese producer and approached him first with the idea of producing BTS’s Japan comeback single.
Below is a post from a fan who has been protesting against Big Hit Entertainment’s recent decision.
In addition, Bang SiHyuk also confused the people of South Korea when uploaded a post that promoted Japanese anime on the South Korea’s independence day. Some have accused him of being ‘inconsiderate’ while others have gone as far as to say that he has lost his mind.
What do you make of this situation?
