BTS' agency Big Hit Entertainment made an official statement regarding the recent "copying" controversy involving the group's performance at the '6th GAON Chart Kpop Awards'!

SEE ALSO: Big Bang's 'FXXK IT' hits over 75 million views


On February 22, BTS put on performances of "Save Me" and "Blood, Sweat & Tears" at the 'GAON Chart Kpop Awards' that have netizens complaining about similarities to a previous solo performance by T.O.P at Big Bang's performance. Big Bang's fans demanded an apology, and allegedly, a performance producer at YG Entertainment has expressed disapproval about the similarities as well.

Big Hit Entertainment has now come forward to state the label and BTS are not responsible for the "copying" as the stage design was not set up by them. The agency stated, "Our side did not prepare the production for BTS' stage in general. These complaints have nothing to do with us."


Furthermore, BTS fans have now gathered evidence against Big Bang and YG Entertainment to prove that T.O.P's performance and stage design, including the SMPTE colors bars, were not unique.

What are your thoughts on the controversy?

Dear all BTS haters,You are being ridiculous. This whole thing is ridiculous, can BTS have one comeback with out getting attacked by every single fandom out their, how jealous are you guys? GD has been called out for multiply times for copying western singers songs because they sound similar. BIGBANG 'SOBER' was accused of plagiarizing The Wanted's "I'm Glad You Came'. How dare u say that BTS copies their fashion, so if BIGBANG wears orange sun glasses no one else can copy them? Do they have copyright over it? People who are mentioning exo in this are pathetic too, exo might have more fans in Korea but internationally the crown goes to BTS and let's be honest exo isn't changing K-Pop in anyway unlike BTS, TWICE, and BIGBANG. Calling BigHit's response immature and cocky? Cause u guys don't like seeing a small company not give a damn whether its a big company, they still tell them how it is and not kiss their ass. They didn't do the stage did they. YG's stage producer response was immature, TOP's sister and Taeyang brother liking it was just petty. BTS has enough to deal with, they have a tour to deal with u Very Idiotic People shit. Leave BTS in peace, it's not that hard.

I feel a bit awkward with this whole issue but the concept of that screen during a live concert has been done by many artist around the world for over 40 years. No one should have to owe anyone an apology. Is the concept that new to the people of South Korea? Has this screen never been shown during a performance? Is there some reason in which anyone should really be upset? Perhaps I am too old to be a Kpop fan but seriously I am old enough to have gone to concerts in which this concept has been used. It's not an original idea for a stage show. It shouldn't matter if more than one act uses it in their performance. It doesn't take away from the music being enjoyed, the dancing and the great feeling of being able to see a live performance by one of your favorite bands.

So I see all of these comments about BTS copying BigBang's fashion and their "No signal" shitty screen. But like how's that BTS's fault still on both things..? LOL. Isn't it the stylists fault? And isn't it the producers fault for the "No Signal" screen? BTS is just there to dance and sing their own music that is DIFFERENT than BigBang's music. They're not there to copy anyone. Please think about shit thoroughly before you come here and post some dumb ass shit, people. Because the people who are affected are BTS, whom worked hard for that stage performance for their fans.
