Big Hit Entertainment

A few South Korean TXT fans have been claiming to have been discriminated for being Korean and kicked out from a showcase in the US.

Netizens have been reading about it and have been quick to condemn Big Hit Entertainment, while accusing the K-Pop entertainment agency of showing preferential treatment to international fans while discriminating against domestic fans.

South Korean TXT Fans Claim That They Were Kicked Out From US Showcase For Being Korean

Twitter

"Why do I have to be under the suspicions of staff members when I didn't even bring any equipments (cameras, recording devices, etc.)? Do the staff members of Big Hit have to be like this? We're just talking amongst ourselves but they treat us as if we are terrorists. We didn't do anything but all of us Koreans were kicked out from the show case. We demand an explanation."

"No cameras. No lens. Illegally searching our bodies. Physical contact. And they kick us out when we couldn't even actually do the hi-touch. Seriously? Just because five Koreans were talking while waiting for the hi-touch?"

The Qoo

"If you watch how Big Hit behaves, it's clear that they don't need domestic fans. They're going to just rely on the international fans, and they don't want to care for the domestic fans since they're not worth much money."

BigHit was also allegedly limiting international fans from Korean fansignings. I think they want to keep Korean fans separated from international fans. As an American, Korean fans seem to act weird and crazed with these idol singers. They are stalking them, hiding camera equipment under their clothing, and they don't want them to have girlfriends/boyfriends!? When these idols come to America, they seem more relaxed and they aren't afraid to interact physically with the fans. On the other hand, these idols seem terrified of their own Korean people when they are in Korea. Americans aren't perfect, but Korean fans need… Read more »

Where are the proofs? And even if it's true, if no cameras are allowed, security is gonna checked the security guidelines are being followed. This is not S.Korea, it's AMERICA, where every 2 fcuking seconds we are have mass shootings or terrorists attacks...

So these are their claims. Okay, where is the proof? There needs to be some kind of proof if it's true. There should be and there must be. If they kick out their Korean fans, as a company, they are being very dumb rn. Think about it rationally for a second - Bighit is one of the top companies rn and they don't have enough time until BTS enlists (maybe a year later or more). Fact is, they have to function with TXT and another new group (debuting in 2020). Without BTS, they have to test a lot see if… Read more »

They need to prove TXT have so many US fans.They don't want to show domestic fans there and get a feed back from other fandoms 'eventhough it's their US showcase.Most fans are Koreans.'

If they kicked them out without them causing any trouble then thats just plain wrong. I understand if they complain about such mistreatment. Coming all that way to be kicked out for nothing.

Dont these people understand that there are so many saesangs that Big Hit has to do these things to keep people safe. Like, yea, it may be a bit unfair, but really think about it.

But no one knows if it's true, these are claims. People have done this before so unless they have proof of this I don't believe it.

That still does not justify why they were kicked out. The people complaining here are saying they had no equipment on them to cause any suspicions that they are saesang so i dont understand why bighit kicked them out!

TXT has not impressed me. They pick a fan name already in use, they release english versions of their mvs, and now this? I knew something was wrong with them when I saw their upside down pentagram chemtrail in their mv "cat and dog". They are causing division without providing any joy. Really embarrassing follow up from BTS.

So the reason you don't like them is because Bighit is testing the level ground with them? I get that BigHit has made a few mistakes on them, but don't call them embarrassing. I love BTS but they have their share of mistakes when they started out. Give them a chance.

I mean i hate things that negatively targets you race but no one is talking about how blacks get mistreated, European's are being mistreated or any other race besides Asians. So why is it such a big problem if we're all be mistreated equally(?)

It was unffair and everyone understands that butr No matter what No one holds right to say such things about BigHit . Bighit is one of the finest aency in korea and if they were after money BTS and who knows even TXT would not have existed today. So PLZ think before you speak up.

I see what you are getting at, but at the same time, I feel as though we do have the right to say such things about bighit if they are doing something wrong. Take YG for example, i have seen many people speak up about the things they can do better even though YG is in the big3 while bighit is not and is just known for BTS and now for TXT. As a black girl too, discrimination is reality for just people of color in general so I kinda see what you are saying, but at the same time,… Read more »
