CNCO has recently caught the attention of South Korean netizens and ARMY. But unfortunately, not exactly for a good reason. According to fans and netizens, the Latin boy band reportedly mocked K-Pop boy band BTS during an interview.

An audio recording with translations surfaced online and they could be heard mocking BTS's and the Korean language. Needless to say, fans and South Korean netizens were instantly triggered.

Additionally, the two boy bands are currently both nominees for the Best Boy Band Award for this year's iHeart Radio Music Awards. While some are accusing CNCO of badly attempting noise marketing, others have stated that such isn't really the case as their YouTube video views already have a good few million views anyway.

What is your verdict? Let us know!

Hello everyone CNCO shouldn’t make funny of another cultural and I am EXOL when I hear it I was shocked and disappointed ☹️ how they can say that and they are good but they shouldn't make fun of another. What if we KPOP fan make fun of another artist and I am not saying what another fan said about CNCO was good but they are right in some point CNCO shouldn’t Start in first place. If they did and they should say something good about BTS and another Kpop artists. You guys don’t know how hard Kpop trying to make… Read more »

me, as an army and cncowner, i do like cnco more since ive supported them since 2015 and wayyy before bts. in my personal opinion, i do not think cnco said those things on purpose you know. they didn’t mean it in an offensive way. they are both famous we get that, but they are it enemies. cnco didn’t really say anything bad.

I know but they shouldn’t make fun of korean language. KPOP artists loves Spanish song they didn’t make fun of them. I am not fighting I am judging saying what should say that.

I'm sorry but I think everyone is just saying thing that they don't mind because if you speak their language you can understand them because who did said words that are racist was Enrique and second I think everyone have to chill down because that translation is bad .. and they said "we don't like that comparation but.." and they said too "We like what they do they are really nice and they are really good and they are really talented " soo please learn the language please because some people are ignorant and can manipulate the translation ... so… Read more »

Like, no one ever cares when a politician or some "important" person like that make racist comments, and yet when a Latino band does it, it's like the world is crashing down. It was a one off, they have never done it before and will never do it again. And to the people who are saying that CNCO is trash, I'd like to hear you sing. Please, post something of you singing. Cause you can't judge these amazing singers if you have a… Read more »

Uhmmm. What they did was still wrong. Im not saying this because im an army. Yes I know that people shouldnt disrespect them. But i mean its what they did to BTS and other koreans. I do admit that the mc started it all. But they still shouldnt mock a different language. And just because both bands are in the same category doesnt mean that they are in the level. BTS worked very hard coming from a not so popular country to be known in the world. While CNCO can be easily recognized as their country is not far away… Read more »

It's disrespectful and unprofessional AF. You don't climb your career ladder by knocking down on others. Support whoever you want without shame or judgements from others, but realize and learn from your group's mistakes. If not, you're just supporting unacceptable behavior of stereotypes and ignorance that only contribute to the amount of negativity in the world. Let's be clear on one point: trashing and death threats towards CNCO is not okay nor an acceptable response in any way. However, the host and the boys need to learn that what they did was ignorant and not okay. Don't sweep it underneath… Read more »

I'm Latina and I'm disappointed in CNCO they should not have mocked them but not only them all koreans but I honestly don't think that they meant it that way maybe they were just playing around. I'm an ARMY and I always will be but like I don't think that we should start a stupid fanwar over it. We already had one with EXO-L's and that is still going on I just want ARMY's to be that one fandom that can not care about what other people say and to watch and listen to BTS happily and CNCO fans I… Read more »

Im laughing and saying who's cnco and it's pretty offensive to mock the Korean language and yes even though I'm not Korean I'm still a different culture in the Asian race and pretty much cnco is racially offensive to South Korea and the army.

And one thing though bts is knowned world wide u look at cnco this, wait what's cnco

they have really no respect for anyone. They can never be a biggest boy band. No man can go forward in life by insulting othets. My BTS is best. A singer shouldn't have a nice voice also they should have restpect,honesty,love and nice character which all have in my bangtan boys. And yes I am an army and always be. I am so proud for being an army. I will always support my boys.❤❤❤❤ My BTS

this is disappointing, I'm Latina so I understood everything, this is just plain ignorant and not just CNCO but the hosts as well should be ashamed for asking how do you say mamacita in Korean when you know good and well they don't speak it, I'm extremely disappointed because the Colombian (the one in the hat) actually has listen to kpop and likes it (blackpink on Snapchat) but instead this...

I am a Latina as well and I agree with Olive Candy its really disappointing to hear this especially how the host leads them knowing well that they do not speak Korean and the thing is that they follow along. It should have clicked in their heads that that was is not right and stopped it there by saying we do not know. It is a disappointment and disgrace to any latin community.

Ive seen/heard CNCO they were guests on the finals of The X-Factor ...not my thing but they were good,have to say when they came on i thought they were Korean(only for a sec) what they did aint cool but some people do really dumb things at times..
