Fans’ Hearts Hurt As NCT’s Mark Says “Sorry We Are Not BTS” In The U.S.

It seems that K-Pop and NCT fans’ hearts were hurt because of ignorant/racist comments idols receive overseas once again.

For example, many will remember the comment Mark had on “Good Day LA” (Fox) in October 2018 or that they were “some random Asian boys dancing” on “KISSFM” in February 2019.

NCT 127 is currently in the U.S. for their tour ​NCT 127 WORLD TOUR 「NEO CITY: USA — The Origin」. Fans noticed that in New York, they had to face ignorant comments not in a show but in the streets.

It seems that many know about BTS but not yet about NCT (?). As the boys were walking in the streets of New York, a fan witnessed a rather sad interaction. Random people in the streets were asking if they were BTS. Mark then answered to them “Sorry, we are not BTS”.

You can check the video uploaded below.

Fans could not help but feel sad at the whole situation.

What do you think of the situation?

This made me very sad because they are two very different groups with different concepts and a different amount of members

Thats very rude from the people, Im glad that this fan was there. Im sure they didnt even know how BTS looks, but still keep it to your self, dont go to ask them if they are BTS. Im sure that NCT and more kpop groups will start to become really popular in America.

From every single thing I’m hearing about NCT’s experience in America, I’d just rather they not go back. It’s sad to hear that so much ignorant shit has happened to them. BTS were so well received when they came, so why not NCT…?

But yeah it Kidd’s hurts that America thinks that all Kpop groups r bts like if u look around there r others

of course if u want to not forcing u to do anything

Ok calm down

That’s because other groups have to work hard like BTS did
BTS fame and success didn’t come by nature or by chance or by money
they work hard for it
they build themselves
they weren’t adopted by a rich company
they worked hard to build big hit in the kpop industry
they begin step by step and they reach their goals
so they deserve everything thanks to their enthusiasm and individual hard work

People can’t acuse the girl of not knowing a group from other country, for her fe. the most recognozeble is BTS could be Big Bag or other they all have the same idol aura not your common people from work so why so much noice about it. You have many option kindly explain, go nuts fan stand or go your way and ignore.

Before reading this, I really hope you guys not to get triggered, since the following is my personal opinion. You may hate me, criticize me, etc. But don’t make this piece of opinion divide us as a social creature. It’s sad that people doesn’t seem to like exploring more K-Pop groups (this includes my mom, and my sisters), and don’t get me wrong, I love BTS as much as ARMYs does. But it’s just sad that other K-Pop Artists (other than the artists from big 3 agencies, of course) doesn’t have the recognitions they deserved. I’m a K-Pop fan, so… Read more »

Then people most to leave the ignorance and learn more about the rest of the world, is not that only in music you find this limited visions to what they have in their own coutries only very often.
